Lectrus Houston Operation Improves Management of Customer-Supplied Equipment

Tue, 10 Apr 2012 10:00:00 EST

Lectrus, a leading integrator of electrical systems and custom metal enclosure manufacturer, has improved the management of customer-supplied equipment (CSE) at its Houston Operation. Customers commonly free-issue power distribution equipment to Lectrus, who installs in the custom, walk-in metal electrical enclosures designed and built by the company.
According to company officials, Lectrus goes to great measures to accept, store and handle customer-supplied equipment. However, the company's business had grown to a point where product flow at the Houston Operation needed to be re-engineered. The number and size of equipment centers being built at the company's largest operation had created spatial constraints and manufacturing inefficiencies. As a result, Lectrus decided to move storage for most customer-supplied equipment to a third-party warehouse.
After an extensive search and evaluation process, Lectrus chose a facility owned and operated by MRJ Logistics. Their 10,000 square foot warehouse is located just nine (9) miles south of the Lectrus Houston Operation, immediately adjacent to George Bush Intercontinental Airport. They offer 24-hour service, insure against claims up to $1,000,000, provide customs brokerage services, and can handle equipment weighing up to 10,000 pounds.
After a recent visit to the MRJ facility, a Lectrus customer stated 'The warehouse is well kept and climate controlled as well as infrared security cameras throughout the facility. All of our gear was segregated according to the Lectrus job number and seemed to be well organized.'
Being an ISO 9001:2008 certified company, Lectrus has developed a written procedure with MRJ Logistics for communication, organization and accountability of all customer-supplied equipment. Upon arrival at the dock, MRJ offloads the CSE and organizes storage within the climate-controlled warehouse according to the Lectrus job number. When Lectrus is ready to install, MRJ-owned and operated trucks deliver the designated customer-supplied equipment to the Lectrus Houston Operation. While most inbound CSE is directed to the MRJ facility, the Houston Operation will accept shipment and maintain CSE inventory when equipment arrives within one (1) week of installation. This service is being provided by Lectrus at no additional cost to its customers.
According to EVP of Sales Larry Woolums, 'The decision to move CSE to a third-party warehouse is already proving a win-win for Lectrus and our customers. Not only is our customers' equipment being stored in a safer, more isolated environment but the efficiencies realized by a streamlined plant configuration will increase our ability to complete their projects on-time.'
