Summer is the busy season for the construction industry. Draper has already seen an uptick in window shade orders and that trend is gaining momentum. We are now shipping more shades than ever before while keeping up with our excellent record of short lead times and on-time delivery.
Here are some ways Draper is ensuring it is business as usual for our customers:
Our current record level of shade production is part of a trend over the past few years. We have purchased more technologically advanced equipment, added staff, and utilized lean manufacturing principles to allow us to handle even higher volumes. We are ready, willing, and able to fill orders—most of them within 10 days!
While we are shipping more shades than ever with the shortest lead times in the industry, you can continue to expect a high standard of quality. Because of our continuing investment in equipment, people, and processes, we are confident we will continue to provide high-quality products when you need them. Each shade that leaves our factory is inspected and operated by a Draper employee and every order is double-checked before being packed and shipped.
Unlike many of our competitors, we still manufacture our shades in the United States. This gives us more control over quality and scheduling. Draper receives multiple fabric shipments from American weavers Phifer and Mermet on a weekly basis, so even if a hole appears in our huge inventory, replacement fabric is already on the way.
The busy season makes quick on-time delivery more important than ever. We have worked hard to prepare and ensure that we have what it takes to earn your orders. Click here to contact your Draper representative and discuss how we can help you meet your solar control needs.
