As the economy and construction industries recover from the effects of last year, New Tech Machinery has experienced a higher demand for products as well as increased prices on the materials we use to manufacture our portable rollforming equipment. We wanted to share the following updates we’ve made to our business and company to better serve our employees, partners, and clients as well as take the time to explain why these changes are happening.
Why Are Lead Times So Long?
As the metal construction industry and economy rapidly recover from the effects of the global pandemic, New Tech Machinery has also experienced an increased demand for our products which in turn has led to a longer lead time in machine production and shipping.
We understand your frustration and appreciate your patience as we take the necessary steps to invest in the future of our valued customers and improve our current operations. Our goal is to continue to make our products even better and to put your concerns with our current lead times at ease.
As this demand grows, we advise customers to place orders for machines now to ensure they will be delivered by the end of the year.
To meet this increased demand and continually improve our line of products, we have taken the following actions and are investing in new processes to keep up with the current demand:
Last year, we relocated our Denver, Colorado operations into a new facility in Aurora, CO.
We also constructed and moved our manufacturing operations in Hermosillo, Mexico to a new, purpose-built facility.
With the combination of these two new facilities, New Tech Machinery has been able to increase our operations’ capacity and productivity as well as employee safety and efficiency.
We have released, and are planning more, new products with a focus on safety, reliability, precision, and standardization across all of our product lines. All of these product innovations will support New Tech Machinery’s ability to produce and deliver equipment to customers in less time.
Material Surcharge Increase
As of April 19, 2021, New Tech Machinery is increasing our 3% material surcharge to 10% on ALL new quotes and orders due to the continued increase in the price of materials. It will be shown as a separate charge on all quotes and orders.
We hope everyone is continuing to be safe, healthy, and productive in their businesses. We have not lost sight of our goals and our customer’s needs.
If you have any questions or concerns about this or any of our products, please contact us. We are happy to help and serve you.
