Metal fabrication

Consider 5 Things Before Partnering With A Metal Fabrication Company

Metal fabrication is an expensive endeavour. When partnering with contract manufacturing companies, you need to be assured that the quality of work you receive is up to standard. Your company’s profits, operational expenses and even the health and safety of your employees depend on the quality of work you receive from your custom metal fabrication company. To this end, Rider Tool and Manufacturing Co. has created this list which should aid you in choosing a metal fabrication company that gives you the best value for money for every job.

  1. The Capability Of The Company
    You need to know that the company you are outsourcing your job to is actually capable of doing it. Many metal fabrication companies will take on jobs they are unable to properly complete. This will lead to delays, unexpected expenses and ultimately a shoddy final product. At Rider Tool and Manufacturing Co., no matter how large or small the job, we have the equipment and experience to take it on and to complete it to specifications.
  2. Customer Service
    Customer service is an all-important make or breaks factor for any company. The company’s ability to understand and deliver on the job assigned to them is what results in a happy, satisfied customer.
  3. Price
    When setting out on any business endeavour, the price is a very important factor. Every business seeks to minimize costs. Caution is advised when looking at quotes, however, as the age-old adage often rings true: “If it sounds too good to be true, it is”. Ensure that you get what you pay for without compromising on quality.
  4. Experience
    A company that has been doing steel fabrication and mechanical engineering for decades will likely be better at it than a new startup – with age comes experience. Experience means they have dealt with almost all the processing problems that may arise and know how to handle them. This untimely results in a more cost-efficient, on-schedule and better quality final product.
  5. Location
    Having a company close to your place of operation to handle your metal fabrication makes sense. Steel is heavy and bulky, meaning it costs a lot to transport. Reducing transportation costs is another cut in expense that will aid your business.

Custom metal fabrication

Who Needs Custom Metal Fabrication Services In Oshawa?

In this high-tech age of supersonic aircraft and 70 story skyscrapers, raw materials like sheet metal are widely used in the manufacturing industry. Custom metal fabrication is at an all-time high, and with a slew of contract manufacturing companies out there all willing to take on jobs, you need to know your assigned work is safe in experienced hands. Rider Tool and Manufacturing Co. have been in the custom metal fabrication industry for close to 50 years.  We get the job done right, the first time.

Why Do You Need Metal Fabrication? 

Mechanical Engineering goes hand-in-hand with heavy industry. Whether you are in need of steel fabrication, or aluminium stamping, we have the expertise and equipment to get the job done. While we are most known for our work with oil and gas refining and mining, we can fabricate and machine materials pertaining to a variety of industries including (but not exclusive to):

  • Railway construction
  • Aircraft and Aerospace construction
  • Restaurant, coffee shop and catering use
  • Cars, trucks and ships
  • Pharmaceutical and Chemical creation and storage
  • Geysers, boilers and other heating equipment

Whether your project is large or small, our experts and artisans will handle it in a professional and efficient manner. We fabricate from the raw material to the finished product, making us a one-stop shop and saving you money on outsourcing your product to various contractors for every respective stage of the process.

Due to the complete process being design, fabrication, machining and finishing in-house, we have the unique ability to create modular designs. This allows the work time to be reduced as each component can be created and sent to you for use or installation immediately, and it reduces shipping or trucking costs as smaller parts are cheaper and easier to ship and assemble on site.

Contract manufacturing companies

The personal touch & partnering with contract manufacturing companies

Normally, contract manufacturing companies that focus on steel fabrication, cement milling and all other aspects of mechanical engineering, consist of large, impersonal and industrial plants. People believe that when its necessary to contact these large companies, the contact is cold and clinical because these companies are not interested in the customer or their business, but only in meeting their quotas.

At Rider Tool and Manufacturing Co., we understand the needs of our customers. We know that the people of Oshawa, Ontario and our international clients, are more than just sources of income to meet targets and quotas. At Rider Tool and Manufacturing Co., we specialize not only in manufacturing for oil, gas, cement and steel industries, but we go above and beyond to ensure maximum customer satisfaction.

Why The Personal Touch? 

In any business, a personal touch is important to appeal to the human nature of the customer. After all, behind all the corporate jargon such as ‘legal entities’, ‘debtors’ and ‘creditors’, human beings enjoy interacting with other human beings. Restaurants have waiters that introduce themselves. Post Office workers make small talk while deliveries are processed. One goes back to their local coffee shop because the barista knows how they like their cappuccino. This is the way humans are hard-wired, and it becomes a lot more important when dealing with contract manufacturing companies.

Successful contract manufacturing companies, such as Rider Tool and Manufacturing Co., understand that behind every job there is a need. We go over and above to ensure not only that the job is done perfectly and to standard, but we also endeavour to understand the rationale behind the request from the client and to ensure that the client’s needs are met. The personal touch is what separates a functional piece of equipment or building from one that is a pleasure to work within the course of everyday life.
