Compression Springs Delivered Overnight
When a major manufacturer in the Southern United States realized that a computer glitch would mean he would have 500 workers with nothing to do tomorrow, he called Hardware Products. The customer needed 500,000 compression springs made to order and delivered over night. Hardware Products had to ask five spring winders to set up 5 different coilers and to stay until 10:00 PM that evening, but we made the 500,000 compression springs manufactured and drove them to the airport where they were flown south and delivered to the customer the next morning. As a result, 500 workers were not laid off for the day and the production schedule was maintained.
