Rangate Project Story - Westeck Windows and Doors - Introduction
While projects have taken us all over North America, we didn't have to go far to work with Westeck Windows and Doors. Located in in BC’s lower mainland, Westeck is one of the largest suppliers of fenestration in the province. We originally began working with Westeck in October of 2015 after they contacted us to investigate building a 1 ¾” casement window utilizing Westeck’s existing aluminum cladding system.
Starting Off Right
Any equipment purchase has three important components:
- the long-term goals of the client;
- the machinery supplier;
- and the tooling supplier.
While it seems obvious, this could be the single most powerful idea we can share about successfully integrating new equipment- all three of these parties must work towards the same goal from the earliest stages.
Long-term planning between the client, machine supplier, and tooling supplier from the first stages of the project is the most important determining factor in the success of a new investment. The most sophisticated machine is only as effective as the tools it uses to cut. Even if the machine and tools work together perfectly, if what’s been purchased does not meet the long-term needs of the business, they could end up as a costly mistake. All three must work in concert.
What we’ve learned is that it all comes down to careful planning with every important party at the table- there’s no substitute for taking the time to plan properly. That’s why Rangate uses a 4-stage process to create success at each phase of a project.
