From our inception we asked ourselves one key question; what will differentiate us from our competition in the Precision Manufacturing Industry? We all have similar equipment; CNC Machining Centers, Fabrication Equipment, etc. What we focused on from the very beginning was customer service. Whether it be rushing parts through for an immediate need, permitting our customers to meet with the machinists working on their project or re-engineering key problem areas for them, we’ve taken great pride in providing a superior customer experience, and that pride proliferates through everyone and everything we do.
That focus on providing the “Ultimate Customer Experience” is our North Star at AKI, and it really is the foundation by which we build everything else we do. That starts with engaged and empowered employees and a culture that makes AKI a desirable place to work. These two pieces together make up the vision for our company- “To create Superior Customer Experiences in Contract Manufacturing & Industrial Services while providing a Stable and Desirable Workplace”
It is one thing to say that our passion is customer satisfaction, but it is quite another to have our customers recognize us for this focus. We are proud to say that this commitment to service is what keeps our customers coming back and what has enabled us to have better than a 95% Customer Retention Rate. We will let our customers speak for us, and their commitment to us truly tells the story.
We look at our entire business through the lens of customer satisfaction. This is what has driven our dedication to quality, and our overall approach to managing our process. Want to learn more about what makes us stand out and how we can help you, click here to learn more.
