About Volume Machine, Inc.
This story starts as most do…small shop grows, implements modern technology, experiences more growth and is thrilled with the hurdles they’ve been able to overcome due in part to E2. But, while most shops would continue to strive for more and more sales, there’s a small CNC shop specializing in the aerospace industry in Van Nuys, CA that is actually trying to slow down a little.
“Our company is deeply rooted in our community and we have a rich history providing quality machine parts for so many customers,” states Rhonda Strubel, Executive Administrator for Volume Machine Inc. “After growing for more than 15 years, we are fortunate to now be able to pick and choose our projects. For a host of reasons, we are choosing to slow our business down a bit and E2 is helping us, now more than ever, to do that.”
Volume Machine has been using E2 since 1999 and while they don’t use every module of the software, Rhonda admits that they wouldn’t have the control and precision in their business had it not been for the knowledge E2 has provided them over the years. “The manufacturing industry is notorious for having a tumultuous, cyclical cycle. With E2, we can be flexible and run with those changes.” Because every bit of information is accessible with just the click of a button, Rhonda and the team can quickly identify which current jobs and which prospects will best suit their schedule and goals. “Our focus now is simply about making good machine parts for a good purpose. We have the opportunity to make this business what we want.”
