TTI is one of the largest connector distributors in North America, and is the largest Amphenol military/aerospace and industrial connector distributor. One of the primary reasons for our success is the commitment to "available-to-sell inventory" and our focus on customer service and responsiveness. In the case of circular connectors, another key to our success is the terrific job that our team in the connector value added center does on a day in and day out basis.
In response to our customer's requirements , TTI is happy to announce the reduction in our connector value added assembly lead times. We have always be able to provide assembly turn around for small quantities (5 pcs or less) in 24 hours when necessary for a small fee, and this will continue. However, effective immediately, we will add the option to request 48 hour turn around for small quantities (5 pcs or less) when needed without requiring a fee.
Effective immediately, TTI is also announcing that we are reducing our standard assembly lead times to 4 days, which is down from 5 days. This new 4 day lead time applies to any quantity but also similar to today, some large quantity orders may require a longer lead time due to capacity restrictions. While these occurrences are rare, we are investigating the potential to quote variable lead times based upon quantity rather than one size fits all. But that will come in the future.
These reduced lead times will provide greater customer responsiveness and flexibility and will position TTI to better support their needs.
