Custom Roto-Mold (CRM), based out of Benson, Minnesota, has worked with Chappell Central since the late 1990’s but not for anything that has to do with heating, ventilation, or cooling. CRM provides custom plastics solutions for a variety of industries and Chappell Central is proud to be a small part of that.
Chappell Central helps CRM by making fabricated metal components of various materials (carbon steel, stainless steel, and expanded metal) that are mainly laser cut and then formed (bent or rolled). CRM uses these parts in the building of fixtures and gauges for use in the production of rotational molded plastic parts.
Since the parts are used for fixtures and gauges, they are usually one-off parts that often have odd contours or bends. These parts are usually held to tight tolerances in comparison with industry standards for the process and materials being used. Despite the odd contours and bends and tight tolerances, the quality and delivery time that CRM gets from Chappell Central is always consistent.
Jereme Ascheman, Process Engineer at CRM explains, “There are a few reasons that we choose to work with Chappell Central again and again… the number one being quality! The quality of metal product received from Chappell Central is unmatched in the West Central Minnesota area.”
On top of quality, another key reason that CRM recommends Chappell Central is for their efficient turn-around. Jereme explains, “Very few companies can match how quickly Chappell Central can deliver product from the time that it’s ordered. When parts are always delivered on time or early, I can accurately schedule when fixtures can be built.”
The team at Chappell Central is not afraid to make suggestions when they know it will help expedite the process, improve quality, or reduce waste. Jereme agrees, ” Chappell has made my job easier by offering suggested design improvements on fabricated steel parts to reduce scrap material and reduce manufacturing time. Chappell Central does an amazing job!”
Chappell Central is happy to contribute to the success of CRM’s innovative products, and appreciates the opportunity to work with local manufacturers, like them, on their custom fabrication needs.
