New Part SummaryPart quoted with a 12 week lead time and delivered in less than11 weeks.“It has been a pleasure working with SMT throughout the entire procuring process.From the beginning you and your team were very responsive and very easy to workwith. The parts you dropped off Monday look great, and our quality engineer whoperformed First Article Inspection commented on the quality of the part and yourfacility. It is not every day that a vendor provides a quality product and delivers a fullweek ahead of schedule. I am looking forward to working with SMT in the future and Ijust wanted to thank you for all your hard work.”Many things, including, complexity, number and types of outsideprocesses, and revision changes, influence the lead time andresponsiveness.
Letter from Goodrich buyer, 12/2010“As I walked through the facility it was obvious there is a high level of value placed on the employees ofSMT. The facility was very clean, organized, with machines strategically located, all good indicators of acommitted and dedicated work team. There was also evidence of a strong emphasis on lean manufacturingpractices which supports effective cost reduction opportunities.Also obvious was the commitment to stay current with the latest machining capabilities. The machines aremodern, appeared to be well maintained and strategically located to support the lean concept and mostimportant, an AS9001 quality system. The installation of the water jet deburr machine is a significantaddition to the overall operation.In today’s supply chain environment where reduction and consolidation are the norm, first impressions aremore important then ever and SMT shows well. As a participant of the Goodrich Corporation Interiorsmachining team I will include your company as a potential machining supplier to all Interiors sites ofGoodrich, domestic and internationally.My applause to SMT’s President, Roy Sweatman for successfully leading his company through these rougheconomic times and for preparing SMT for continued growth and success.”Letter from 27 yr supply chain professional after tour of Southern Manufacturing Technologies, December2010.
