In complement to our manufacturing capabilities, our Anderson, Indiana location also serves as a distribution hub for an array of ready-to-ship wood based products. Frequently, our distribution items are supplied in tandem with manufactured parts, allowing clients to select from a variety of ready-to-use components. Working under our speed-to-market concept, we believe this dual offering allows our customers the ability to minimize raw material inventories, expedite turns and utilize in-plant footprints for additional manufacturing activities and/or to store finished goods.
Outside of our Indiana location, Tru-Cut also conducts distribution activities in north central Wisconsin and south central Quebec, Canada. Using the same supply model as we do from our headquarters, we derive customer material forecast requirements and build requisite inventories in support of JIT deliveries.
