    Custom Design and Rush Delivery, CalCo is your home for all your projects’ needs….. ( sometimes with a little help from our friends!)

    At CalCo we always work to communicate with our clients upfront regarding time requirements, so they can manage their internal timelines effectively. If the timeframe is just mathematically impossible, on any number of fronts, we are always clear about that with our clients. However difficult should never be confused with impossible, and we always manage difficult time frames throughout the year for our clients as everyone knows.

    If there are unique custom requirements, extra time can be taken to review the details of the project upfront. This insures the customers’ “need to have elements” and” nice to have characteristics” are understood and incorporated into the final project. Sometimes due to outside variables such as custom delays or overseas shipping company mistakes, even the best laid plans of mice and men go sideways, and both CalCo and its customers sometimes face unforeseen time constraints. When CalCo receives our customers products past the date both CalCo and its customer expected, we communicate that to our clients, and then our crisis mode mentality snaps into place.

    CalCo has been in operation for over 60 years and in the process is extremely proud to be been known as a great company to deal with and as a favored vendor by our suppliers. We treat our vendors as we would like to be treated, by communicating quality and time expectations up front before the work commences. Therefore, when on occasion, we may need a superhuman favor from a supplier like a plating or foam insert rush job to help with a tight timeframe, we aren’t afraid to ask as we are confident that we have earned that right.

    With our customer facing a late delivery scenario as highlighted above, CalCo jumped in to help with both feet. We designed a custom modular case for Progressive Components, that included a nested custom reinforced tray insert with handles, to allow Progressive to effectively transport and showcase their products, in time for them to pick it up at our office to meet their deadline. The following email we received from the customer made our day!

    “I would like to offer my gratitude for a job well done, Neil nailed it! Considering I only met with him for a few minutes and not to forget an extremely tight time line the finished case was beyond my expectations with all aspects and more addressed! This case will work perfect for our needs!”

    Turn to CalCo in your time of need…we welcome the challenge and the success story emails at the end of the project make it all worthwhile.

  • The Case of the Overloaded Salesperson

    Posted on May 16th, 2012 admin No comments

    Have YOU ever felt like this guy…?

    Sometimes salespeople get bogged down with all the numerous products they have to bring on sales calls to meet potential clients. For our clients that currently use our cutaway services, we offer to pair that up with a custom foam fit case to keep the sales force more organized, more professional looking, and add to the longevity of the other part of your sales team…the product!

    Here’s an example of how after a cutaway is finished a little extra expense can keep that product, and your sales people, going much farther.

    Custom Foam Fit Products Into Case…                          Close the Case, and the Deal…

    The age old dilemma, how do you transport your product to sales calls, tradeshows, investor relations meetings, distributors or anywhere else with out damaging it and so that it keeps that ‘brand new’ look? The answer is a custom case from CalCo.

    We have a case to meet virtually every need. Sometimes this is as simple as a soft sided carrying case, while sometimes a rugged behind the scenes shipping crate needs to be fabricated.  Often the container needs to be worthy of carrying into someone’s office and possibly even set upon their desk.  At CalCo, this need is met week after week with a variety of solutions.  Whether you need to ship it through the mail or the case will be riding around in the trunk of your car, CalCo has the right option for you.  These custom cases are custom selected and designed to fit your product specifically and have a history of peak performance.  From slim and elegant to heavy duty work horses, a case from CalCo will impress as well as protect. More photos after the break..
