David Fisher, President, S&H Machine
For 60 years, S&H Machine has helped our customers increase profitability by reducing the cost of quality and by providing reliable solutions to their complex machining and sub-assembly requirements.
Quality & Control
Our custom-built MAP ERP software sends real-time information directly to iPads on the production floor. This gives us control over the entire system and allows us to achieve some the the highest quality and on-time delivery stats in the business.
Lean Manufacturing principles help eliminate inefficiencies and waste, leading to increased throughput. Our on-time delivery ratings are among the highest in the manufacturing industry.
Investment in our Customers
For customers who need zero lead-time, we will make an investment in maintaining inventory at no added cost. If necessary, we will also invest to expand our manufacturing capacity for mission critical and production critical requirements.
