Cross-Divisional Success

As a result of an ongoing and successful relationship, one of Acme’s oil and gas customers referred our company to its division that manufactures products used in drilling applications.


Data Duel

ACME provides precision machining of power cylinders for a manufacturer of heavy equipment used in petroleum pipeline management. After machining by ACME, these power cylinders proceed to another supplier who provides plating and honing services.


Scaling up to Meet Market Opportunities

When an ACME customer introduced a new product family into the market, it found that demand far exceeded capacity of the supply base. Our customer knew that a substantial amount of additional business could be generated if availability of the product family could be increased.


A Laser Focus on Service

A manufacturer of large fluid handling equipment was moving a suite of valve castings from one foundry into another as part of a strategic initiative to launch a new product. Critical to the process were the rapid transfer of patterns and the launch of new patterns.


Bringing Order to Chaos

An OEM company chose Acme Industries to take on tier 1 responsibility for the part family, help choose a new foundry to supply the castings and bring them into production.


Full-service partnership Grows Customer Sales by 75%

A customer in the Oil and Gas industry seeking to capitalize on a high-potential market opportunity came to Acme to develop and manufacture a complex, high precision product that needed exceptional speed-to-market in order to capture a $24 million sales opportunity.


Customer Gains 6-12% Cost Reduction from Acme’s Lean Manufacturing Benefits

Many of Acme’s customers encounter cost pressures as they strive to stay competitive in their markets. Since most OEM’s products have more than 50% of their costs generated by the material, parts, and assemblies they purchase, they are very dependent on their supply chain to not only control their costs, but also find cost reductions that can be shared.
