Work in Process Steel Pallets
Move raw material with forklift between processes or to ship between plants
Reducing cost by 70%
Saved customer expense by not having to build 26 new racks, reducing cost by 70%
Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana had a part that went through a design change on the 26 previously fabricated pallets.
How it was used
For stamping blanks in making a body part of a vehicle.
Unique about the specs
Due to the engineering change of the part that goes on this pallet, we had to take the existing pallet and retrofit and rework it. We retrofitted all 26 pallets to match the new part design.
Unique about how we helped the customer
We did an analysis to ensure it was worthwhile to do the refurbishing. Often times, there is so much damage or wear that it would cost more to refurbish. In this case, it made sense.

What people are saying
I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you and the team for the great support you have given TMMI so far. Not only is the quality of the pallets, fencing, and other fabrications meeting or exceeding our expectations, the service has been great as well.
I appreciate your ability to meet the delivery dates for our recent orders given the compressed schedules, and too frequent design revisions, we have thrown your way. I have shared your contact information within TMMI, including to an onsite purchasing representative, to see if others can also benefit from your services. I am looking forward to doing more projects with your company in the future.
