Our sister company, Prototype Specialties is available to personally serve your need for prototype or pre-production parts.
KL Steven has strived to develop long-term relationships with our many vendors who provide special processing of the parts and components that we manufacture. These vendors provide process such as heat treatment, plating, special finishing, grinding, welding and fabrication. Having been in the aerospace and high technology manufacturing business for over 50 years, we have developed a large base of vendors that we know and trust. These relationships aid us in insuring quality end products while meeting our customer's schedule.
- Approved, High Quality Sources
We can insure qualification and certification of our vendor processes to major aerospace and federal specifications. Because of our large vendor base, meeting our customer's approved source requirements is not a problem.
- Raw Material Sources
Sourcing of hard to find metals, materials and components is something we specialize in. Our procurement department actively maintains a database of over 1000 sources for materials and processing. Test lab certification of materials and processes is available.
- Manufacturing and Fabrication
At times we utilize our proven sources for operations that are beyond our "in-house" capabilities. Stamping, forming, fabrications, and swiss machining are some of the services we can provide through our proven sub-contractors. As always, the same stringent quality requirements are upheld just as they are for manufacturing that we do "in-house".
- Complete Capability
All the sourcing advantages that KL Steven offers allow us to provide a full range of manufacturing capabilities and, in many cases, enable KL Steven to be the one manufacturer that can deliver when others must "no-bid"!
To meet the needs of our customers in this age of high technology and flexible scheduling, KL Steven actively maintains the latest technology in our internal systems to insure that the highest rate of on-time deliveries is attained. Our Made2Manage business/production system integrates our entire process from quotation to invoice. Our state-of-the-art system allows us to manage important information quickly and accurately.
We work with the "on-line" systems of many of our customers and maintain the latest computer hardware and software that enable us to offer this capacity. As industry moves closer to total e-commerce and paperless transactions, we strive to be at the forefront, poised to serve you better.
- On-Time Delivery
On-time delivery and quality at KL Steven go hand-in-hand and we utilize all of our resources to keep our customers supplied with the parts they need when they need them. Our estimating department and production department work closely together so that when we give you a cost estimate with a manufacturing lead time, that lead time is as realistic and accurate as possible.
