Our kitting and assembly services streamline production for large parts.
Understanding the Difference Between Kitting and Assembly
Kitting is a service that combines multiple parts into a ready-to-ship package for transfer to an end-user or assembler. Products like furniture rely on kitting to make the product assembly-ready by the end-user. Kitting makes shipping the product to the customer faster and helps manufacturers avoid missing parts and other mistakes. It also simplifies final assembly for the buyer, providing a more convenient customer experience.
Outsourcing kitting to the manufacturer helps growing businesses to avoid the costs of increased storage space and inventory management capabilities. Kitting services can also be beneficial to the assembly line. A prepared kit streamlines the assembly process while reducing packaging waste and reducing mistakes.
Assembly services combine disparate components into a finished product, ready to be shipped to the end-user. An assembly line may partially or fully assemble parts using automated equipment, manual assemblers, or some combination of both.
Kitting delivers a range of benefits to the manufacturer. It improves the efficiency of the assembly line by providing the necessary parts in an organized manner. Kitting can also reduce required storage space by consolidating multiple components into a single kit. This practice often improves inventory management by categorizing all kitted parts under a single SKU.
When working with large parts, it’s often more affordable and convenient for the client to have the manufacturer build kits or assemblies at the production facility to minimize handling, equipment, and labor needs at the client’s facility.
