Pictured here is one of the custom stainless steel standoffs we supply our drone manufacturing customer. Production is done in the USA in 18-8 stainless steel material, with passivation as the final step in the production process. Lead times vary depending on the quantity required and rush options are typically available upon request. When usage volumes exceed 25K pieces or so we typically switch production to one of our overseas partners to optimize cost per piece.
These large quantities would be best supplied on a 12 month blanket purchase order basis. The Blanket Order concept allows the customer to access the large quantity cost savings without paying upfront for the entire large quantity order. Instead we take on the burden of carrying the bulk inventory and only release the parts as needed, or often on a pre-scheduled basis provided by the customer.
