Keller-CMS is a group within Keller Technology Corporation - a manufacturing company founded in 1918 as the Duplex Buffing Machine Company - which offered custom and standardized buffing machines, as well as general machine shop services.
After many years as a machine shop and machine builder, contract manufacturing began in earnest in the 1970's when production runs of mechanical assemblies and machinery were delivered to the emerging micro-electronics industry.
Today, Keller Contract Manufacturing Services is a leading provider of contract manufacturing services for automation machinery, equipment and instruments as well as high level assemblies and subsystems to a variety of industries. Our core focus is the contract assembly of highly complex mechanical and electromechanical assemblies and complete machines.
Manufacturing facilities are located in North Carolina, New York and Mexico to serve all of your machinery and subsystem contract manufacturing needs.
Paramount to the success of each contract manufacturing project is the ability to effectively manage the program. At Keller-CMS this starts the first time we talk to the customer and continues throughout the project. Program adoption begins with a detailed analysis of the existing manufacturing process, availability of documentation and information; conducted by a seasoned project manager. Once the requirements are thoroughly understood and any issues are resolved, a formal plan of attack is developed.
The project manager serves as the point of contact for the customer and has responsibility for all aspects of the program. A highly refined and tested program management system is employed to make sure " nothing falls through the cracks"; and easily accommodates engineering changes and schedule alterations. The manager communicates with the customer regularly utilizing a customer-preferred format.
Experienced staff coupled with leading-edge technology and proven management systems assure the success of your contract manufacturing program.
