Flexible Assembly Systems Thrives In Tight Manufacturing Market

San Diego, CA, November 8, 2008 -- Despite the Institute for Supply Management's recent survey indicating that the nation's manufacturing sector has declined to a 26 year low, and recent declines in the equity markets, Flexible Assembly Systems has seen an increase in sales from manufacturing clientele. As a licensed distributor for Ingersoll-Rand, Makita Torque Controlled Cordless Tools, AIMCO, CDI Torque Products, and Fanuc Robotics, the firm has continued its efforts around the affordable, accessible and quality oriented part of the assembly market. The company's light-assembly website,, focuses on providing simple solutions to manufacturing firms.

Previously, manufacturing companies searching for electric screwdrivers, pulse tools, torque wrenches, or torque testers sought more complex solutions to issues in an assembly process. "Our newest customers are looking for easier and more cost-effective sources for light-assembly products. Fortunately, we've been working in this market for a long time," states Eddie Silverberg, President of Flexible Assembly Systems. Manufacturing customers have been forced to look beyond expensive or unreliable suppliers, and find Flexible while looking online for specific types of pistol grip screwdrivers, cordless torque controlled screwdrivers, electric and pneumatic torque screwdrivers, and other mission critical assembly tools.

"Since manufacturing budgets are tighter this year, our new clients are spending more time doing their pricing research online, and finding us. We've been receiving orders from consumer electronics, automotive, medical device, and other industries with common assembly questions. These include inquiries about torque ranges for assembly tools, weight specifications for tool balancers, efficient use of a torque multiplier, or what type of power bit to use with a certain application. With or without the headlines, assembly needs have not disappeared. Critical assembly applications still have our phones ringing," Silverberg says. The company also focuses on helpful free online resources like a torque conversion table, a screw torque guide, and a guide on types of joints light assembly technicians need to be aware of.
