Bonded Inventory (Dedicated)

Commonly used inventory is stored at your facility under National-Precision’s ownership, offering you hardware and components as your production needs demand. You will reduce purchase orders, expediting, freight charges and other purchasing related costs.
To help save paperwork and time, National-Precision can offer you consolidated billing. Instead of getting a paper bill every time a product ships, consolidate your bills for the month to one weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly bill.
Dock To Stock
Efficiency is a key component of a successful business and National-Precision can help your company be more efficient by implementing a dock-to-stock program. Our representatives will work with you to inspect products shipped so you don’t have to do it when you receive product and it can go right into stock.
Need product quickly? National-Precision offers your company the ability to drop ship product directly from the manufacturer to save time in case National-Precision does not have stock.

Using your PC and modem, you can dial into National-Precision’s mainframe and all the information you want is at your fingertips. National-Precision’s “Inventory Inquiry” screen provides all the product detail from pricing, available stock, to the stocking location. The order screen allows you to place purchase orders, make changes to your request date, or check status of a back order. Of course, E-mail is included.
Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)
In today’s growing economy, more and more companies are looking to paperless needs. Electronic Fund Transfer is an ideal to make payments for your purchase with National-Precision in a quick and easy step by transferring funds from you to National-Precision for payments of invoices. No need to write checks anymore, the funds will be drawn from an account.
Improve your return on investment by reducing in-process inventory and its associated costs. Rely on our vast experience to make sure your JIT program is handled properly.
Kanban is a means of managing a Just-In-Time (JIT) program. A Kanban system is a way of signaling that more parts are needed on the production floor. A Kanban system is typically a three bin system, one bin on the factory floor, one bin in the factory warehouse, and one bin at the supplier’s warehouse. The bins will have a removable card that contains the product details and other relevant information – the Kanban card. When the bin on the shop floor is empty, it is replaced by the bin in the warehouse. The supplier is then contacted to replace the bin in the warehouse.
National-Precision will take your bill of materials and package items together to provide production ready kits. One line item per order reduces suppliers, SKUs, inventory, inspection, transaction, and acquisition costs. Kitting streamlines procurement, and speeds up the manufacturing cycle.
Protect yourself from increasing material cost by negotiating a long term pricing agreement.
