Efficiently Manage Your Inventory with Precision and Foresight

At UKAM Industrial Superhard Tools we understand that managing inventory in a fast-paced environment demands not just precision but also a strategy tailored to your unique needs. Our Make and Hold program integrates seamlessly with Just in Time (JIT) inventory systems to deliver a solution that ensures your operations are as efficient as possible, without the burden of overstocking.

Tailored Production, Ready When You Are

Our Make and Hold program is designed to synchronize with your production schedule, providing ready-to-ship products just as you need them. We produce and store a calculated inventory based on your forecasted demands, mitigating any delays due to production lead times. This approach ensures that your essential diamond and CBN tools and consumables are on hand the moment you need them, enabling you to maintain a lean inventory without the risk of stockouts.

Key Features

Our Make and Hold Program

  • Predictive Production Planning: Leveraging advanced forecasting technologies, we predict your needs before they arise, scheduling production runs that align perfectly with your projected demand. This strategic foresight helps in reducing wasteful spending and optimizing resource use.
  • Strategic Stocking: Our controlled stocking strategy ensures that the right amount of inventory is available at the right time. We maintain buffer stocks tailored to your usage patterns, providing an extra layer of security and ensuring that fluctuations in demand never disrupt your operations.
  • Seamless Integration with JIT Systems: The Make and Hold program is designed to complement JIT inventory systems, offering you the best of both worlds—minimal inventory with maximum availability. This integration supports operational agility and reduces unnecessary inventory costs.
  • Quality at the Ready: Each batch produced under our Make and Hold program undergoes stringent quality checks to ensure that only the best products make it to your inventory. Our commitment to quality means you receive products ready to perform at peak efficiency.
  • Flexible and Responsive: Our program adapts to your changing needs. Whether scaling up production or adjusting to market shifts, our flexible production planning and inventory management ensure that you remain on track without compromise.
