Responding to competitive challenges

Innovation is the cornerstone of sustained economic growth and prosperity. To stand out in a crowded market, businesses must focus on different ways to keep up with evolving demand. How can you innovate and how can innovation take your business to the next level?

Business innovation matters for one simple reason: value. In order for your business to thrive, it is crucial to be continually innovating and improving. Successful business innovation means finding new revenue opportunities, optimizing existing channels and, ultimately, generating higher profits. It should also give companies an advantage over their competitors.

“With the traditional manufacturing business model transforming, we must be quick to acknowledge and respond to these new competitive challenges,” said President of Matsuura USA, Craig St. John, who cited the company’s contribution to helping small businesses produce more and compete better on the global stage.

The manufacturing industry is faced with increasing expenses and shortages in skilled labor, causing machines to run for less time or be shut down more frequently. When machines aren’t running, it’s lost revenue and manufacturers are stressed because they cannot meet their production needs.

Matsuura has developed and manufactured cutting edge machine tools since 1935. From high speed machining to full five-axis, vertical, horizontal, linear motor or multi-tasking CNC machine tools, Matsuura has spearheaded the design of automated, unmanned, high accuracy CNC machine tools for a wide range of industries.

“Matsuura’s unattended, lights-out machining is strategic in reducing labor costs and has assisted organizations in becoming much more competitive, allowing them to participate in additional markets,” St. John added.

As manufacturing in North America becomes more complex, requiring multi-axis machining solutions, Matsuura is the preeminent solutions provider.  While most industries maintain a higher part mix and smaller batch production, reduction of inventory is an imperative initiative. Additionally, with pressure on pricing and margins, customers realize they must discover methods to reduce labor costs.

One way to innovate is to increase efficiency. Having an efficient business model is achievable with tech innovations. When business processes are streamlined with technology, they are less expensive, save time, and more sustainable. These savings can be reinvested into your company’s growth or passed on to the customer, offering both an affordable and reliable product.

“Automated, lights out production is the future of profitable manufacturing. Matsuura Machinery USA has the product range, the industry partners and real world experience to seamlessly integrate profitable automation into your business,” St. John said.

“Automation does not need to be expensive or time intensive to implement. Automated gaging, bar feeders, parts catchers, robotic cells and flexible manufacturing systems can benefit shops of all sizes. Investing in automation allows shops to stay competitive during times of economic instability and become globally competitive without outsourcing,” St. John concluded.
