At Sol Manufacturing, our customers rely on us to complete projects of all sizes on time and on budget. Whether it’s an urgent need for a few parts, a steady stream of spare parts, or a large production run spread out over months, we can deliver what you need. We always provide the highest quality possible at a competitive price.
Mapei produces adhesives, sealants, and other chemical building products at manufacturing plants throughout the world. Their plant in West Chicago relies on us to keep their spare parts inventory at levels that will assure continuous production. We work directly with Marco Romero, their Spare Parts Manager.
When their spare parts inventory reaches a predetermined level, they call us to manufacture additional parts for them. With this process in place, if a part needs to be replaced, they only need to shut down their operations for a brief time to make a replacement, and they avoid expensive downtime for long periods.
“Sol Manufacturing was recommended to us by the engineering group at Mapei. Sol had done some really good work for them in the past. Basically, my job is to ensure we have enough high quality spare parts on the shelf and to save as much money as possible in the process. Sol Manufacturing checks all those boxes; they provide the spare parts inventory we need at an excellent price. It’s a perfect balance.
“They manufacture specialized sprockets, different types of arms, and a variety of pre-engineered parts made from metals, Teflon, and polyurethane. We get a lot of our parts from Europe, but it’s much more beneficial if we can make them in the States. That’s where Sol Manufacturing comes in.
“Sol always meets the deadlines we set for them. If they are going to need more time on a project, they are excellent at communicating with us and letting us know what’s going on. They are a very reliable machine shop that completely meets our expectations. I like working with them, because they basically guarantee that I’ll have spare parts on the shelf when I need them. Plus, if I have any questions or need to know how something works, they always pick up the phone and walk me through it.”
-Marco Romero, Spare Parts Manager at Mapei Americas
