100% Traceability

“If it exists or happens inside the Valley Forge walls, we know everything about it. A capability we are extremely proud of.”

At Valley Forge & Bolt, we take traceability to a whole new level. From the time the raw materials are ordered, to the day a finished piece is put on transport to our customers, we know, at all times, exactly where that piece has been, when each step of the manufacturing process has occurred and who has helped to transform it into what it needs to be. From start to finish, without a shadow of a doubt.

What's the best way to reach you?

From the moment the steel is taken off the truck, it is received into the Materials Requirements Planning (MRP) system. All of its specifications; material type, poundage, heat number, country of origin, mill source are known, recorded and traceable in the system.

All materials are also designated a precise internal tracking number for our own purposes. The steel is color-coded based on this internal tracking and specification and can be easily identified in the yard. Its unique heat number, traceable all the way back to the mill it came from, is how material is issued to each job.

This advanced MRP system is fully customizable to meet the customers’ requirements or specifications. For example, if there is a particular inspection or hold point required by you, our valued customer, we have the ability to make it happen, seamlessly. We can tell you exactly when the inspection or hold happened and precisely the employee that carried it out.

 

 

Because our system is barcode based, the employee operation of every process is time stamped from start to sign off. In addition, every piece that is made inside the Valley Forge walls is barcoded with a VF unique number. This allows us to have 100% traceability for every single piece manufactured by us. At any given time we can see the job sequence of any order, what has been completed, at what time, and by whom.
