3 Signs Your Business Needs a Kitting Service

Have you considered implementing kitting for your small business? Kitting is the process of pre-assembling individual products into one ready-to-ship package that is fit to size and cost-efficient. If you’re curious about switching up the assembly strategy for your small business, here are a few signs you need a professional kitting service:

You don’t have enough space

Whether you run your small business from an office or a garage, it can be difficult to assemble products and prepare orders for shipping from a small space. Especially as your business begins to grow, it’s important that you have adequate space to complete projects. If you’re running out of room to run your small business, consider outsourcing kitting projects to a third-party company that includes warehouse space for your products.

You have a small staff

Hiring and training new employees can be expensive and time-consuming. As your business grows, outsourcing kitting services can help you keep up with the demands of incoming orders without requiring additional staff. When you partner with Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries for your kitting services, you can take advantage of our large, dedicated workforce that’s equipped to handle kitting projects of any size.

You have limited time

If you’re operating on a tight schedule, your business may benefit from outsourcing kitting services. With kitting, you can experience shortened lead-times on your orders, which can decrease production costs and lead to greater customer satisfaction. Outsourcing kitting services to a third party company can ensure your company stays on schedule and allows you to focus on other aspects of running your business.
