Impossible, Right? MFC Next Day Shipment!

Mar 20, 2013

Buyers of high-performance mass flow controllers or any flow instrumentation for that matter, have come to expect long product delivery lead times as an industry standard. It is accepted that many high-performance flow instruments need to be customized and calibrated for a specific application. And this takes time.

Sometimes lead times are up to 4-6 weeks. But, for practical business purposes, does it need to be that way? Long lead times are a measure of a manufacturers capability and willingness to invest into making their customers more profit.  Long lead times decrease your efficiency and productivity and at the end of the day, decreased profitability.

This reality is accepted as “how it’s always been.” At Sierra, we have said enough is enough and made an extensive investment into primary standard calibrated in-stock inventory that can be purchased immediately online. 80% of our customers buy a very similar range of products for similar gases and flow ranges. This is what we put in stock. You can even see the real time inventory levels on our online store.

It is our goal to overjoy and even surprise our customers with how fast we can get a flow meter into their hands. Our team gets excited about next day shipment!  Impossible, right? Check out the in-stock offering for our premier SmartTrak 100 mass flow controller. This is the NEW lead time reality that helps scientists run efficient labs and changes the way customers buy customized flow instrumentation.
