Snappy Consolidates Facilities For Streamlined Shipping And Advancing Innovation

Philadelphia Warehouse Capabilities Consolidate with Georgia and New York Manufacturing Plants

PHILADELPHIA, March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Snappy, the nations' leading supplier of galvanized pipe and fittings for the residential HVAC industry, is consolidating and upgrading its capabilities at four strategic locations around the country. The move comes on the heels of the company's January announcement regarding its expansion of customer services and the introduction of its Laser-Cut Safety Fittings™, an innovative new industry technology.

"Our strategic objectives were two fold," commented George Judd, CEO of Snappy. "First, consolidating our manufacturing and warehousing is enabling us to provide convenient single source points for our bundled Comfort Distribution Products™ – sheet metal, flex, grills, registers and diffusers. This is key to providing the highest quality products at competitive prices while delivering outstanding service. Second, we are rolling out the industry's first laser-cut safety fittings™ that make for safer, faster installation with better fitting performance across the country."

Mr. Judd added, "Our Snappy manufacturing facilities in NY and GA will improve the quality and service we can provide our East Coast customers.  Also, the company's new headquarters will be located near our most modern and fastest growing manufacturing plant in Powder Springs, GA."

Innovation Is Key To Future
Laser-Cut Safety Fittings™, according to the company, provides a very real point of differentiation and will certainly separate Snappy from its competitors. "Laser cutting eliminates the jagged edges associated with traditional cutting methods," explained Tom Smid, President and COO. "Plus, the preciseness of the cuts brings tolerance levels down to an unprecedented new industry standard of 0.001. Between the safer to install, smooth cut edges and the precision cutting, installed HVAC system performance is significantly enhanced for homeowners." 

Bundling Is Big Hit With Contractors
According to Mr. Smid, the newly reconfigured Snappy locations are more strategic to its distributor network and to contractor installers. "We want to be able to assure our distributors that they can order all their Comfort Distribution Products™ and have them arrive on-time in a single shipment at a job site," he said. "One way the company is achieving its new bundling initiative is via an enhanced ordering system. Our technology now converts orders into precise cutting lists sent directly to the laser cutters. The advanced system also prioritizes the parts to be cut for easy, space saving consolidation for compact shipping and job site delivery."

Snappy's network locations now include Detroit Lakes, MN; Medina, NY; Portland, OR; and, Powder Springs, GA.

Continuously Rethinking What's Possible
"We are entering exciting times here at Snappy," said Mr. Judd. "We really are all about making good on our promise for continuously rethinking what's possible for us to do to meet our customers' needs for service and quality. Our focus on innovation will keep us moving toward constant improvement of our methods and products into the future."
