Emergency Sourcing and High-Speed, Short-Timeline Launch for Automotive Manufacturers
Systrand was founded as an emergency supplier to the automotive industry. Over the years, we’ve maintained and expanded our internal capabilities, so that we can react quickly to the most challenging program and launch demands. Whether it’s a last-minute design change or an emergency resourcing need, we can meet even the most aggressive customer launch schedules.
If your supplier is failing to perform, causing quality issues, in financial distress, or simply not a reliable partner, Systrand can help. We can solve your problem more quickly and put in place a more stable long-term solution—one that is built around a robust process with the necessary monitoring to prevent further issues from arising.
A Lifetime Dedication to Quality, Manufacturability, and Responsiveness
Reliable manufacturing builds off of experience. It’s not as simple as buying the equipment and manufacturing to print. We’ve been in high-volume precision manufacturing and expediting launch/emergency sourcing for more than 40 years. We know how to take an existing challenge our customer is facing and work with them to find new solutions. This collaborative process can reduce direct costs, shrink timelines, simplify assembly, improve durability, and help eliminate the issues a customer has been experiencing with a high-risk supplier.
Since 1982, Systrand has specialized in precision machining and emergency sourcing. In that time we’ve produced millions of hubs, flanges, gears, shafts, housings, and other components. Our manufacturing processes, proprietary tooling, and in-house talent have proven capable of reliably producing high-quality custom components at production volumes, while meeting the tightest of tolerances and timelines.
Our approach is grounded in data analysis, with continuous monitoring in place to confirm that our manufacturing processes are precise, accurate, and repeatable. But more importantly, we have the tools and processes in place to ensure that our components and assemblies perform to ever higher standards while still respecting your timeline. Our production and design teams benefit from the latest CAD/CAM software; 3D modeling; modern, flexible, and scalable CNC-based machines; and performance-accelerating Zeiss coordinate-measuring machines (CMMs). Our internal tool room department can expedite any part-specific machining work we need to compress timing.
With Systrand you can be confident your components will meet your design, durability, and performance specifications, while balancing them against the realities imposed by cost constraints and timelines.
Our Commitment to Quality
“Quality” isn’t just something for the Quality Department to worry about. It’s a commitment threaded through every office and workstation. At Systrand, we are a tier 1 supplier with IATF 16949 and ISO 14001 certifications. Our quality systems, processes, and entire organization are committed to ensuring quality for our customers.
Over four decades, we’ve invested and reinvested in the tools and talent that are vital to our customers’ success. That includes a world class operating system of monitored performance and a structured approach to problem solving proven to ensure reliable manufacturing.
These are metrics/results driven systems, built on Lean Manufacturing principles and Six Sigma methodology, and take into account activity-based costing and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) while maintaining low- to zero PPM. Those systems form a foundation from which we can pursue continuous improvements and cost savings for our customers.
