Higher Level Assembly

High-Level Assembly (HLA) is a proven operations strategy that allows OEMs to focus its in-house efforts on the top-level assembly to simplify production, minimise inventory, floor space, manufacturing overhead and direct labour. Often, for companies that serve cyclical markets, shifting control to the contract manufacturers and utilising a high-level assembly strategy allows companies to control fixed costs in an upturn and preserve a lower breakeven point in a downturn.

Future Plastics carry out a range of HLA services including twin skin assembly, plastic and metal bonding, sourcing, fastening, finishing and packing.
