The best way to fight long lead times on flange orders is to have the flanges you want in stock. Texas Flange keeps many commodity and non-commodity flanges in stock for just this reason. The reduction in lead times is just one more way Texas Flange serves our customers better.
If a product has to be made then there are many options. With no other information, we will quote "standard lead time" This is between 2 days to 2 months depending on the item. If time is of the essence we can improve on our lead times via a premium. This usually adds to the costs. In extreme cases we will run products over night, through the weekend, and/or break-in and start immediately. Where there is a will, there is a way.
If you have a decent quantity and time to wait we can take the job direct to overseas mills. This is great for products that are used on a regular basis, or on contract projects where many of the same parts are being used over a long period of time. If you think you might have an application where direct import could be an option, we have the relationships worldwide to meet your requirements.
