Our Typical Process Flow
Upon receiving your RFQ, geometry, material, and quantities are reviewed to narrow down which manufacturing process is best suited for your design. Locke-Brothers will then communicate this information to our domestic manufacturing principals to obtain a quotation. All of our quotes will include tooling, piece price, the material quoted, and lead times.
Upon acceptance of our quotation, drawings are verified, PO’s are cross referenced with the quotes, and the parts are scheduled into our production process. In some cases, an APQP meeting will occur. Upon tooling completion, If required, 1st article samples are provided for your approval.
If required, PPAP are provided to the level you request. After sample approval, production will begin. Locke-Brothers will monitor production, and communicate updates to assure that parts are delivered as promised!
