Ideal Setech Saves the Day!

Congratulations to Ideal Setech on their GM article feature this month! The article details Setech’s resourcefulness during GM’s time of need, helping to avoid a plant shutdown in Warren. The Carriers area of the assembly room experienced downtime related to an extreme usage spike in the Flexlink Conveyor Stops; in one shift, all stops in stock were used and then considered irreparable. The Ideal Setech team in Warren immediately searched for the part they needed and executed ordering and purchasing with emergency transfer.
