For more than six decades, Capitol Industries Inc. has provided Canadian manufacturers with its engineered locking systems and exceptional service, such as short lead times and competitive prices. As great as Capitol’s products are, they still face tough competition from overseas and other North American manufacturers. So how does the company stay above the rest? Through constant investment in the latest equipment.
By buying the latest manufacturing equipment, Capitol ensures that it stays competitive as technologies change and evolve – and can provide additional services.
Newer products for changing needs
Capitol relies on a wide variety of equipment in its ISO 9001-2015-certified Montreal facility to design, develop, and produce its many engineered locking systems. The company is always improving its capabilities by constant expansion and upgrading of this machinery – allowing it to make newer, bolder products to meet customers’ changing needs.
Among the latest additions to Capitol’s equipment inventory are automatic key-bitting and plug-assembly machines. This equipment improves the company’s manufacturing capabilities while lowering overhead costs and reducing lead times. Capitol’s customers benefit by shortening their supply chain and lowering their costs and inventory levels. This service creates value that cannot be matched by overseas imports or most of Capitol’s North American competitors. To be able to maintain such value-added service, Capitol must stay up to date on technological progress and customer demand. The key is to keep an eye on the future.
The wide range of equipment Capitol uses allows its personnel to make Canada’s top engineered locking systems. It also enables extra customer services: tooling and tooling design, die casting, and secondary operations with customized machining operations. Capitol also uses its equipment to give clients the highest quality of finishing processes in the security industry. With these bonus services, customers get an added value that other lock manufacturers in North American do not have.
The Capitol team offers several hundred processes of diverse, complex finishing capabilities – electroplating, powder coating, relieving, and assembly. Epoxy, hybrid, polyester, and polyurethane powder coating are also available. No matter what condition they are in, parts get a final touch to make them presentable with belt-sanding and satining equipment. Capitol provides accurate, efficient assembly according to exact client specifications, with stringent quality assurance.
With a constant focus on new equipment, Capitol stays ahead of its competitors.
