MOD Concept

MODIFICATION EQUIPMENT – Timely Manually Operated System

MOD Program Benefits

Superior Customer Service

  • Provide special jambs, sidelights and borrowed lights in short lead time (1 – 3 days) instead of factory lead time (3 – 4 weeks)
  • Ability to modify and respond quickly to jobsite changes instead of waiting 3 – 4 weeks for factory replacements
  • Ability to provide replacement parts from stock to arrive at job when needed

Additional Profit

  • On Tenant work, time is much more important than cost. If you can save a week in finishing the project, that means one more week of lease revenue
  • When products are needed sooner, customers are willing to pay more – MOD equipment allows the distributor to provide frames at much higher margins because of lead time
  • Having MOD to supplement a traditional hollow metal shop keeps shop people busy when one or the other segment is slow – less turnover
  • Savings on freight – non MOD customers have to pay for low volume freight charges which can be as much as 1/2 of the cost of the frame. MOD customers build parts out of stock that was shipped in with large stock orders at much lower freight costs

Additional Business

  • Allows MOD shops to sell material to other Timely dealers when dealer is unable to wait for factory lead time. This is business that they would never receive without MOD
