Wear Solutions and Lean Initiatives
Wear-Tek is the preferred metal casting production foundry and machine facility for large domestic and international OEMs. Our foundry manufactures high integrity High Chrome White Iron and Steel castings, specializing in wear and heat resistant components for the aggregate, power, agriculture and other miscellaneous industries.
Wear-Tek has carved out a niche at the OEM level in the aggregates processing industry and is committed to serving only the OEM. Our OEM only philosophy, along with our extensive experience in this market, makes us unique in the industry.
Wear-Tek has embraced the philosophy of Lean Manufacturing; each step in the process has been streamlined to reduce and minimize waste (non-value added activities) to the total supply chain. As with every company that embarks on the Lean journey, the process of continual improvement is ongoing.
In response to the Lean philosophy of minimizing the number of vendors utilized, and the difficulties associated with trying to produce a wide variety of casting types at a single facility; we have developed strategic partners both domestically and overseas. Each project is evaluated and processed at a facility where the casting fits the core competency of the production facility.
At Wear-Tek quality, precision, performance, customer service and on time delivery is our number one concern.
