Let’s face it; 80-20 ratio always seems to stand the test of time. It might be easy to forecast 20% products, but, what about the 80% SKU of the products offered? That’s where our MTO program comes into play.
The MTO is a smart program designed to fulfill specific demands. The 80-20 ratio talks about how 80% sales come from the forecasted 20% products. The program then helps with the remaining 80% of SKUs which give 20% of sales. In detailed words, Eran MTO (Made-To-Order) is a program operated from UL approved Eran operated facilities located in California and New York, where lighting products are made-to-order and shipped within 2 weeks or less. The facilities stocks finished goods and components exclusively for Eran Industrial customers. The financial burden of customers individually modifying a standard product can be staggering. Therefore, we offer stateside manufacturing and assembling options to fulfill custom requests with Made in America status.
This program is ideal for companies that are able to forecast common class ‘A’ items, and want help with custom requests for class ‘B, C, D’ items (i.e. adding a photocell or any other modification or customisation) as there are less common variations when it comes to ‘B, C, and D’ items. At Eran MTO, emergency battery packs, photocells and motion sensors are customized into Eran Industrial products at high-quality products factories, staffed with engineers and lighting production professionals with decades of specialized experience in ‘Made-to-Order’.
