The Right Size For Assembly Services - Kent Elastomer Products

The Right Size For Assembly Services

Most firms report that they experience at least a 15% decrease in the total cost by hiring another party to offer their services or produce goods. 

What does the Right Size look like at KEP? It’s a great team of experienced assemblers who understand the nuanced demands of different industries – from food and beverage to sports, leisure, and medical.

This seasoned KEP team of approximately twenty assemblers has spent 230,620 hours on secondary assembly operations and packaging.  You get that experience on day one. 

The balanced size of our team allows us to communicate like a small company – no red tape, always just a phone call away – but make impactful, quick decisions like a larger company. If you have a question about outsourcing your assembly line services, we are always here to talk.

Big Industry Expertise
Our assembly customers come from a diverse array of industries. To name a few, we produce and inventory products for customers in the following industries: 

  • Medical and surgical supplies – tubing, dip-molded parts, filters, components, and packaging 
  • Food and beverage – food-grade tubing, fittings, films, and bags
  • Laboratory supplies – latex tubing, tourniquet bands, and more
  • Sports and leisure products – natural rubber latex tubing, fittings, components, and carabiners 

Many Assembly Services – Plus…

KEP offers a wide range of assembly services – but also applies continuous improvement methods to assure high quality, efficiency, and savings that result from our assembly services.  

“KEP” It Under Control

KEP assembly services benefit current customers who rely on our high quality, made in the U.S.A. flexible elastomer tubing products and dip molded parts.  Now they can “KEP it under control” – saving time, money and supply chain risks when their parts are made and assembled in one place. 

Other ways KEP customers and you can benefit from our assembly services:

  • Supply chain consolidation and management of components suppliers
  • Efficiency gains through manual or semi-automated assembly
  • Custom and/or proprietary assembly machinery
  • In-house quality inspections (incoming/outgoing) 
  • Quicker turnarounds using JIT (Just in Time) or Kanban inventory management systems
