DTI Expands Capacity
For years, our team at DTI has successfully based our production capabilities on industry needs, manufacturing the highest quality, best-in-class waterjet products and services for our customers.
The disruption caused by the global COVID pandemic resulted in an increased demand, which was coupled with supply chain shortages. These problems lengthened our lead time significantly for some products.
During this challenging time, DTI has worked with you, our customers, to ensure that your highest priority parts are delivered. We appreciate all you have done to order much further in advance to accommodate the current landscape.
Sharing Our Progress
While our team has been addressing current pressing challenges, we have also planned for the future. Over the last year, we have made significant investments in our equipment, people, and processes to expand our capacity to better serve you. Here are some highlights:
- Equipment. DTI has made significant investments in capital equipment to ensure uninterrupted production while boosting our overall capacity.
- Employees. We have already added and continue to hire new team members in many divisions. Current employees are incentivized to recommend prospective ones, have cross training and promotion opportunities, and are being offered compensation, flexible schedules, and other benefits to increase retention.
- Additional Shift. DTI has added a shift in our nozzle assembly division to meet customers’ rising quantity and timeframe requirements.
- Operations. We have addressed inefficiencies, floor space requirements, and safety in our production facility.
