Technology

Our adept use of the latest technology is a key advantage of working with us. Across all areas of our business, technology increases our productivity and efficiency, ensures product quality, and helps us respond to customer needs quickly and knowledgeably. Examples of our technology systems include:

  • Fully integrated warehouse management, electronic data interchange (EDI), and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems accurately manage customer orders and communications.
  • Advanced metal detection and electronic defect removal systems in all of our plants ensure safe, consistent, high-quality products.
  • A videoconferencing system links our corporate office in Seattle with all of our plant locations, as well as with vendors and customers around the world who have videoconferencing capabilities. This system offers face-to-face communications without the lost time and expense of travel.
