MRO Spare Parts Reduce Long Lead Times for Integrated Supplier

Ice cream manufacturer benefits from spare Delrin® filler tubes

An integrated supply company was responsible for providing spare parts in an ice cream manufacturing plant. The Delrin® ice cream cone filler tubes used in the plant were a consumable item that had to be periodically replaced. The tubes were manufactured in Europe and long lead times from the machinery manufacturer were causing down time in the plant.

Spare parts reduce lead times and lower costs

MRO Spare Parts Reduce Lead Times & Lower Costs for Manufacturer (Case Study at Curbell Plastics).Curbell Plastics sales team worked with the site manager at the integrator to manufacture comparable tubes with short lead times. One additional benefit was that the filler tubes manufactured by Curbell were significantly less expensive than the tubes from the machinery manufacturer. This allowed the integrator to show a documented cost savings for the ice cream manufacturer.
