Reducing lead time with our in-house Printing Machine
The need for a quick turnaround in manufacturing is becoming more and more prevalent. Companies are continuing to look for innovate ways to continue practical and cost-effective production lines; along with reducing lead time in whatever way they can. An industry that continually requires rapid turnaround is Broadcasting and Live Events; an industry that CP Cases have a steeped history working in.
History in Broadcast and live event
CP Cases has its roots in the live events industry initially producing flight cases for the renowned touring rock bands of the 1970s.
Bands such as Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd. World-famous artists such as Elton John relied on CP Cases to transport their equipment from the tour bus to the stage. Taking incredible impact on tour after tour, some of these early sound equipment cases are still in use today. Some 40 years later which highlights just how durable these cases are.
Our designs have evolved to accommodate the ever more sophisticated requirements of today’s live events. From portable studios and production units. Outside broadcast units. Electronic equipment cases. Lighting and sound consoles. Even electronics racking for all your event audio needs – the choice is clear.
CP Cases provides a wide variety of products for the broadcast and professional media market. From camera & filter cases, through to outdoor broadcast. We even develop mobile and portable solutions for emergency reporting.
Camera and filter cases are designed using rugged textiles, aluminium or polyethylene subject to the customer requirements. For outdoor broadcast, we have a whole range of camera rain covers that are made for particular makes and models. But we more often than not, we use customisation.
The Printing Machine
For more than 25 years we have worked with Broadcast camera manufacturers to develop protection for their equipment kits. Our range of outside broadcast camera covers enable us to respond quickly to the requirements for camera weather protection. We have designed the rain covers to meet the extremely high expectations that many OB kit managers; focusing on the perfect mix of quality, availability, and value for money.
We keep stock off 100’s of metres of materials so that colour options are readily available. This helps us with a smooth transition when corporate messaging needs to be compiled with. We also have the capability to apply full-colour logos. Managing this in-house dramatically reduced the lead time as delays in supplies is never experienced.
We understand the need for urgency across all industries; especially within the Military and Security sectors. So reducing the lead time in whatever way you can is paramount. Bringing the printing in-house and keeping stock of 100’s of materials helps cut valuable time off manufacturing. This has helped us keep to tight deadlines and keep customer satisfaction.[ssba]
