New Product Introduction
Once the decision is made that a supplier change is in order, the next concern for the procurement professional is the transition. Will the new supplier deliver a quality product on time? Super Steel has developed a specific process and has dedicated a team of manufacturing professionals to address this concern. We call it New Product Introduction. Attention to detail, constant communication, and the desire to execute the plan are what make the New Product Introduction process a success.
So, what is a New Product Introduction plan? We’ve created a plan to evaluate how a product will be made and ensure things go smoothly. With every new product we introduce, we check 100% of the parts and process before it ever sees the production line. We decide on and implement extensive engineering, planning, and quality checklists to ensure the success of every product we manufacture. From the kick-off meeting to the multiple reviews and evaluation, we make sure we can get it right every time. When we find issues, we make sure to correct them on the front end. This way, we run into them less later.
As part of our ISO registration, we make sure we can deliver on our promises. This is one way of many to do just that.
Our staff includes design engineers, tooling designers, manufacturing engineers, and welding technicians. Altogether, that makes over 300 years of engineering and manufacturing experience. As a result, whatever your product and needs, our engineering team creates solutions to make production run more smoothly to get a better product on time.
- We think “outside the box” for various applications and solutions:
- Complexity – innovations can show up in large complex assemblies
- Simplicity – innovations can show up in the simplest of parts
- Artistic – innovations can be non-typical, outside the heavy industrial business
CAD / CAM 3-D modeling engineering software
- Solidworks 2013 x64
- Nest v9.1 for all flat pattern CNC cutting & DMM v8.0
- In the event that you need assistance, we aid in the customer design process to support a wide range of assembly types:
- BOM’s as simple as 2 parts
- BOM’s as complex as 4000 parts

Successful carbon steel welding requires a craftsman’s knowledge of the way each alloy responds. Super Steel’s AWS-certified craftsmen, aided by engineering professionals, create carbon steel weld sequences that maintain precise conformity to a customer’s design parameters.
Successful stainless steel welding demands detailed knowledge of the material’s unique response. Through careful design of weld sequences, Super Steel craftsmen and Engineers create stainless steel welds to meet the strength and dimensional needs of an original design.
Aluminum welding demands special expertise. Super Steel uses years of aluminum welding expertise to safely create products with superior strength and exact conformity to the original design.
Excellence in complex assembly manufacturing is a key reason customers trust Super Steel as a provider of Complete Manufacturing Solutions. This means the same rigorous attention we give to process control applies to all assembly jobs. As a result, from the simplest nut-and-bolt work to the creation of complex electrical and computerized controls, we have the attention to detail to make sure it’s done right.
