Demand being what it is, we have just taken delivery of yet another milling machine: a MX330 PC10 five axis vertical oriented 4m x 4m footprint of high technology and metal. While we have been machining aluminum wine bottle racks at our Squamish facility since our inception 10 years ago, we thought we would take a moment to highlight the importance to our business (and ultimately what we deliver to the customer) of investments with in-house manufacturing.
More Capacity and Shorter Lead Times
We continue to enjoy a high calibre local supply chain of manufacturers and finishers here in the lower mainland of British Columbia. Our made in Canada lineage has always been an important part of our identity here at Liquid Systems and we have great partners to help us along the way. Given the growth in demand we have been experiencing however (a good problem to have!), it is important that we can react quickly to ensure a steady and timely supply of parts. This added machine will lend us more capacity to buffer against pinch-points in our supply chain, as well enable us to own our own production planning to decrease lead times as much as possible and bring the customer their wine racks faster.
