You Can Depend on Our Supply Chain Management

As a key supplier to our nation’s aerospace and defense industry, it is critical that Superior Thread Rolling keeps up with demand and continues to supply our products to defense and military customers at all times. We are dedicated to meeting these demands, so regardless of the supply chain issues affecting the industry as a whole, STR manages all outside processes to avoid any setbacks for the customer.

Maintaining Quality with Supply Chain Management

To achieve our mission of being the top thread rolling supplier, we must produce the highest quality threads and fasteners possible. In our efforts to achieve this goal, we must maintain quality with our supply chain management that meets the latest ISO 9001 and AS9100 industry standards. By developing strong business practices, STR consistently and routinely delivers excellence to our customers.

Our Sizeable Approved Supplier List

STR uses an approved supplier list of 150+ sources. We understand that every customer has their own unique supplier list, so we maintain our own comprehensive supplier list to satisfy every customer’s needs. STR is proud to stand out among the competition by doing business with the entire aerospace industry.

By maintaining a large list, our supply chain team is able to competitively bid for projects, gaining better prices in comparison to our competitors. With greater flexibility as well, STR’s supply chain team is able offer better lead times than those without an approved supplier list of our size.

Geographic Advantage for Aerospace Supply Chain Management

STR’s geographic advantage provides us with the best access to the aerospace supply chain. By being able to process parts without leaving the area, our team is able to provide our customers with quick turn-around times. Additionally, because we don’t need to constantly ship parts in from out of state, STR is able to save on time and costs associated with shipping.

Mitigating Risks of Material Supply Issues

When material supply issues arise, it pays to work with a company with industry connections. In addition to our large approved supplier list, STR mitigates the risk of not being able to locate materials by working with mills directly.
