The Importance of Accurate Delivery Estimates

Dolly with three different sized boxesAs a leader in the manufacturing field, you understand how important accurate delivery estimates from your suppliers are for your business. Inaccurate delivery estimates can wreak havoc on your entire production line, leading to idle employees and machinery, cost overruns, and angry customers on your end. What’s more, you understand first-hand how many component suppliers make late deliveries a normal part of doing business. However, the manufacturing business does not have to be this way. That’s why the team at Precision Clamp is dedicated to providing accurate delivery estimates on all of our SCR Clamps production orders.

Our Commitment

The Precision Clamp team commits to always provide accurate delivery estimates for every SCR Clamps order that we complete. We understand that providing an accurate quote may put at a disadvantage in the bidding process, since many unscrupulous companies will lie and provide misleading quotes in order to secure a contract, with no concern for how this false information will affect your bottom line and relationship with your own customers. However, we believe that maintaining a sterling reputation within the industry is the key to secure new customers and maintaining strong relationships with our existing partners.

Common Causes of Delivery Delays

Profit Motivation

Many unscrupulous firms are so concerned with securing customers and maximizing profits that they are willing to knowingly provide false delivery estimates in order to receive business, even if they know that their incorrect delivery dates will cause problems in their client’s own business. At Precision Clamp, we understand that the best way to secure new customers and retain current customers is by establishing a reputation for excellence and by meeting all of our commitments, no matter what it takes.

Production Capacity

Related to the profit motivation, many companies will simply take on more business than their production line can currently handle, with a hope that their employees will somehow make up the difference. We understand that companies are limited by their current equipment and production line capabilities, and we will never promise something that we cannot deliver.


Many companies fail to meet their delivery deadlines because of issues with their own procurement policies. Component manufacturers who work with the cheapest raw material suppliers will face the same problems that you face when working with sub-par component manufacturers: if they cannot receive their raw materials in-time, they will inevitably deliver your own components late. That is why we only work with the best raw material suppliers in the United States.

Employee Buy-in

At Precision Clamp, we understand how important employee morale is to maintaining a cohesive and productive working environment. When employees believe in your mission and have a sense of ownership over their company and production line, they take pride in meeting and exceeding deadlines. That’s why all of Precision Clamp’s employees are provided with industry-leading pay, excellent benefits, and a clearly defined path to leadership roles. This ensures that our staff is among the most motivated and efficient manufacturing teams in the country.
