Do you need help sourcing hard-to-find materials or over-molding, blasting, stamping, finishing, packaging, inspection, logistics, or other services?

We have helped many of our customers with such challenges over the years - streamlining production processes that have become even more complex in the face of marketplace obstacles:

  • Downward pressure on pricing
  • Increased shipping costs and transit times
  • Attempting to reshore manufacturing in the U.S. for products used here
  • Navigating challenging regulations and laws
  • Lead times on raw materials impacting delivery

If you need electropolishing with additional services to get your products to market faster and more cost-effectively, our turnkey sourcing service might be right for you.

Start-to-Finish Production Support

Since 1954, Able Electropolishing has worked closely with over 100,000 OEMs, contract manufacturers, machine shops, and other metal finishers. That’s a wealth of trusted relationships for sourcing a wide variety of high-quality materials, services and expertise that our customers can leverage to their benefit. When our customers need something beyond electropolishing, we know where to find it and provide a one-stop source. From materials and services to the delivery of finished parts, Able will shrink your production time, costs and headaches:

  • Fast identification of suppliers that can meet even the strictest requirements and regulations. Over six decades as an industry pioneer, Able Electropolishing has worked in industries that include medical device manufacturing, pharmaceutical, aerospace and other manufacturers whose quality control protocols carry life and death implications. Our network is built around high-stakes production capability under strict regulatory oversight and rigorous third-party assessment and certification. We know people you should know.

Honed over decades of helping some of the world’s most innovative companies bring lifesaving products to market, logistical and supply chain support is something we are proud to provide.
  •  
  • Reduced shipping costs and lead times by identifying best-of-breed suppliers in your area. At Able Electropolishing we believe in the “rising tide” power of networks to drive excellence, save time and create cost-savings across channels.
  •  
  • Improved vendor management efficiency. A reliable and streamlined network of vendors can feel like a superpower in the manufacturing world, even to our customers – many of whom are already saving lives. What could you do with that kind of confidence and extra time?

Finish First Methodology

The path to bringing a product to market is complex and full of logistical challenges. A solid network of reliable and high-quality suppliers is an advantage in any industry – and in any conditions. Able Electropolishing has been building its network of trusted suppliers over six decades, but it’s not an advantage we keep to ourselves. Our commitment to our customers means our network is your network too.

We are proud of the role our finishing expertise plays in the efforts of world class design and manufacturing engineers to bring their products to market. But we don’t stop there. Sharing our network of best-of-breed suppliers is as much a part of our process as expert metal finishing.

With a methodology that covers everything from R&D input to prototyping and logistics, we ensure our clients’ access to the right suppliers for the right job and high-quality services at every step. As a partner in our customers’ success, we’ve built our reputation around more than a smooth finish for your metal parts – we create a smooth process as well.

Case Study:
Turnkey Sourcing Services for Medical Device Manufacturer

A medical device manufacturer reduced its all-in parts costs by 26% and production time by 6.5 weeks for 5 million complex parts per year using the Able turnkey sourcing service.

The manufacturer asked Able to source all material and parts stamping from suppliers in the U.S., which were then finished with electropolishing from Able. The manufacturer paid one price for the completed part and the Able team managed supply chain logistics.

Results

  • 26% cost reduction
  • Completed part 6.5 weeks faster
  • One price per completed part
