Why conservatory manufacturers RTE Fabrications use in-house manufacturing
Conservatory manufacturers RTE Fabrications, are not a huge multinational corporation. We keep our operations focused and tightly controlled by handling everything ourselves. We don’t outsource or use outside companies, and manufacturing is one of the many things we keep a tight handle on. There are many advantages to keeping things in-house. Here are a few.
Quality of Materials
The biggest advantage of in-house manufacturing is a greater degree of control. Which means a rock-solid guarantee of quality. Safety is also a key concern in this particular respect. In the construction industry, safety is always an absolute priority. For employees and customers alike. In-house manufacturing eliminates any possibility of the use of shoddy or unsound materials. We source only the best and most reliable materials to create our products. That includes our porches and conservatories. Assuring us of their end quality, and ultimately ensuring that you get the best for your money.
Quality of Personnel
You’ll agree that it would seem absurd to send someone from an outside company to assess your property. Why not send one of our own employees? (That’s why everyone you deal with, from concept to its completion, is recruited, trained and employed by us.)
Well, we take the same view towards manufacturing. Good materials count for very little without the skills and expertise to use them. Each of our employees knows his or her craft inside out. meaning that not only can we have confidence in the quality of materials, but also in the way they’re put together. Structural weaknesses, perks and downsides of each material. Training our employees ourselves means there are no gaps in their expertise. We can promise high-end products and an excellent service every single time.
Quality of Our Process
Control is also a crucial aspect to the smooth running of any construction process. You can outsource this aspect to other companies. We find there are distinct advantages to keeping it all under one roof. First of all, it gives us greater control and knowledge of our own timeframes. We know exactly what’s happening and when. When we make you a promise, we’re not relying on anyone else to also keep their word. You can trust in the transparency of our conversations. On a similar note, it eliminates any danger of a conflict of interest. We aren’t competing with companies use the same suppliers.
It gives us an invaluable flexibility. Pivotal when working on bespoke projects. We don’t need to pursue lengthy avenues of communication. Our staff can respond to any changes in specifications or design. We can also react to any changes in the market or industry. Adapting our style or process to deal with any new or impending challenges.
And there’s more…
There’s also a wealth of other benefits that don’t fit under these three categories. Situated in Darwen, RTE Fabrications is a company with strong local ties. Believing we should support our surrounding community. By refusing to outsource, we give jobs to local people. Therefore, helping to contribute to Darwen’s economy. Better than sourcing things further afield (or even abroad).
