Kitting is a great way for manufacturers to save time and money as well as to optimize inventory management. Kitting is a value-added service that can benefit your company.
The process involves taking different individual components and combining them together to create a kit with a new SKU. By combining products, you can quickly and easily locate items when an order is placed which allows for companies to ship rather quickly.
If you believe your company can relate to any of the following reasons for kitting, you should consider kitting!

Looking to Save Money
There is no doubt that fulfilling orders is an expensive task. That’s why we want to help you save time and money with what we do best, provide cost-effective solutions for kitting and packing. By outsourcing your kitting, you save money during your production process by:
- Eliminating search time for components – with all materials handy, workers save time and can operate most efficiently
- Reducing packaging costs – consolidating items prior to packaging saves considerable packaging costs in baggies, dividers, corrugated boxes and labeling
- Reducing labor costs – employees save time searching for items, in packaging and shipping when working with one box instead of several
- Freeing up warehouse space – inventory is streamlined with each individual item having full traceability with a kitting provider who is ISO registered and uses ERP system lot code tracking.
Outsourcing kitting to an experienced, quality kitting provider saves considerable time and money for OEMs of all sizes with less materials required and less labor for more efficient production.
Wanting to Increase Efficiency
Every company knows time is money and strives to have the most efficient processes. Kitting services allow items to be processed in bulk rather than individually, saving manufacturers both time and money. Kitting also helps to track inventory as orders come in. If workers do not instantly know where a product is, that causes downtime and the overall productivity suffers. Pre-sorted kits save time and labor because those components are available and easily accessible whenever needed.
