CASE STUDY 1

Heating, Air Conditioning, & Refrigeration Technology

Project Challenges:

A major OEM provider of climate control technology was looking for a local supplier of Custom Skids, made-to-order and delivered JIT for its wide range of products. These intricate specialty skids would function as 'work in process' platforms and custom manufacturing of the skids to CAD specifications required tight tolerances. In addition, the vendor would be responsible for monitoring stock levels, maintaining an adequate inventory of finished goods at the companies' facility, and handling all ordering & invoicing electronically.

Tree Brand Solutions & Results:

  • TBP offers JIT delivery of products & services both locally and regionally for significant Cost-Savings.
  • TBP worked with customer engineers to modify Skid designs - Skids are now more "user-friendly", and by altering their dimensional orientation for cube efficiency customer Transportation Costs are substantially reduced.
  • TBP custom builds over 100 Skid Designs for 200+ different parts - All skids comply with precise customer specifications and offer superior product protection.
  • TBP created a VMI program for this customer - Order- fulfillment, monitoring & maintenance of inventory levels and other management functions are performed by Tree Brand - Saving the customer time & direct labor costs.
  • TBP has responsibility for stenciling, labeling, and implementing packaging and product identity systems placed on the Skids.

CASE STUDY 2

Custom Engineering & Equipment Manufacturing

Project Challenges:

A specialty designer and manufacturer of factory process equipment, systems, and parts required custom Crates & Boxes for the safe shipment of its high-end machines. The fragility of this equipment required vibration-damping, and protection against dust and moisture contamination. The company also required that their packaging supplier respond to JIT demands, and rush orders – flexibility and professionalism were key attributes in both winning and retaining the account.

Tree Brand Solutions & Results:

  • TBP worked collaboratively with company engineers to design and validate with drop-testing specialty Crates & Boxes "with all the bells & whistles" for its extensive range of custom industrial equipment.
  • TBP had the capability to manufacture support cradles for machines within the Crates & Boxes, and to equip them with protective shock-absorbing floors.
  • TBP lined the Crates & Boxes with VCI - a corrosion protection packaging system to eliminate damage from contamination during shipment and storage.
  • TPB achieved a "no damage" & "safe shipment" evaluation result for the Crates & Boxes from customer QA team.
  • TBP performs VMI services for the customer, enabling JIT
    deliveries, and responds to rush orders with quick -
    turnarounds to meet customer's expectations - on small
    or large orders - standard or special projects.

  • TBP utilized PDS – The pallet design system to analyze weight-bearing capacity, and to validate Pallet design, and lumber species selection.
