Cabinet specialist sees assembly time cut by 10%

When French manufacturer Conceptole needed a reliable partner, it turned to Essentra Components

Conceptole is a French specialist in the design and manufacture of standardised and custom metal parts and assemblies. Its work encompasses telecom cabinets, street furniture, medical equipment, winegrowing equipment, signage, design, machine wrapping and terminals.

The company’s cabinet designs called for a variety of components, ranging from access hardware to cable management. On-time delivery of these items was critical to ensuring its processes ran seamlessly. However, the companies it was sourcing components from required long lead times, which threatened its own ability to meet deadlines.

Conceptole needed a reliable partner. It met with the Essentra Components team and visited the Roissy-en-France site. This experience convinced it that Essentra Components was the company that could provide the proactive support needed.

Faster assembly, essential support

Working to short deadlines, Essentra Components delivered high volumes of stock. This included hinges, locks, gasketing, rails, swing handles, cams, spacers, feet and cable management solutions. To make the service even more hassle-free, Essentra Components next delivered the components in kits. These kits contained the components that each cabinet needed, which made for faster assembly during the manufacturing process. Essentra Components' support also included prototyping, free samples, and custom and modified products.

With Essentra Components’ timely support, Conceptole was able to manufacture its designs with peace of mind and without interruptions to schedules or processes.

Efficiencies: Instead of ordering components separately, Conceptole received kits that grouped together the components needed to produce each cabinet. This reduced assembly time during production by 10%.

Cost savings: Conceptole received operational savings through the partnership in purchasing, logistics and finance.

Productivity: With large stocks available to them, Conceptole’s purchasing, logistics and finance departments had an easier time ordering the components they needed. This allowed them to concentrate on the daily running of the business. The kits also addressed another issue, in that components were delivered at the same time, specifically aligned to the needs of the production line. This enabled the production team to be more productive.

Ongoing support

Essentra Components remains committed to Conceptole and continues to deliver high-quality components quickly against their required lead times. It also provides support in other areas, such as working with Conceptole’s R&D department in the prototyping stage to find the best solutions and components for its applications.
