You may be under the impression that you have to do everything in-house. This is not always true, especially when it comes to pipe coiling. Regardless of what industry you are in, if you require coiling of pipes, you can save significant amounts of money when you use a third party to provide you with the treatments instead of doing it in-house.
Anytime you need pipe rolling or coiling in-house, you need specialized equipment. This is an expensive capital purchase. Additionally, it requires equipment maintenance throughout the year to ensure it continues to work in the way in which you demand. This is an ongoing expense for the life of the equipment.
Your employees will need PPE when using the equipment. Each time you hire a new employee, you will need to pay for training. This can include a significant amount of labor charges because you are paying an employee to teach and another employee to learn. The labor that you are paying for does not go toward the productivity because it is a training session instead of getting actual work done.
There may also be fees involved with workers’ compensation insurance. If there has ever been an accident involving pipe coiling, you are probably still paying for that accident within the insurance premiums on a monthly basis.
As if all of those expenses weren’t enough, you also have the labor involved with someone actually coiling and rolling the pipe. If someone isn’t all that experienced, it could take them hours to get the work done. The labor that you pay has a negative impact on your bottom line, which is never a good thing.
When you delegate a third party to do the work for you, it can save you a lot of money. You don’t have capital equipment to buy, PPE, training or anything else. You simply order the pipe to be coiled so that you can have it to meet your specifications. 3D and 4D bending is available and much more, allowing you to be as specific as you need to be.
The benefit to having another company do all of the processing of pipe is that when it is delivered to your facility, your employees are able to begin working with it immediately. This means that it can go into the assembly line or into a particular product or machine that you had it created for. If no one has to stop what they are doing for pipe coiling, it improves the productivity of your operations considerably – and this will save you money in labor costs as well.
You have to consider letting a professional do the work that needs to be done so that you can save money. All over the country, people are learning to outsource in order to get better services, save money and improve their operations.
