Vortex releases FastTrack order fulfilment programme

Published by
World Cement,


Vortex has announced the release of its FastTrack order system designed to deliver small quantity orders on select product designs and sizes in two weeks.

The programme accelerates the delivery of common Quantum Series™ products, including the Vortex® Roller Gate™, Vortex® Orifice Gate™, Vortex® Maintenance Gate, and Vortex® Wye Line Diverter™.

Previously, Vortex utilised a first-in-first-out (FIFO) manufacturing process where standard product orders often competed for manufacturing time with more time-intensive, specialised product orders. This made for delayed order fulfilment and inefficient lead times of 3–4 weeks. Now, by dedicating manufacturing resources toward a stand-alone FastTrack production process, Vortex is able to assemble select products in quicker cycle times without delaying the production of special-engineered product designs.

“FastTrack was developed based on our customers’ feedback regarding lead times for key Vortex products,” said Brian Burmaster, Vice President of Sales at Vortex. “It was a market-driven decision, to ensure Vortex is meeting our customers’ needs. Vortex understands lead time is often a significant factor in the purchasing decision and FastTrack aligns Vortex lead times with market expectations."
