The A400 Impact
Drew Burroughs, the founder of Goat Built, emphasizes accuracy in part production and design, and how it is essential for the customer to successfully weld a kit together. Formerly, this required outsourcing to a shop with a tube laser processing system, and Goat Built would have to wait for bulk orders to come in before they could purchase production of 6-10 chassis kits at a time.
Thanks to the A400, Goat Built can now build chassis one by one. The ability to manufacture in-house not only streamlines production efficiency, but also maintains production quality. Burroughs states:
“(The A400) has eliminated a 6-week lead time on part manufacturing by eliminating the outsourcing of manufacturing. Now, we can do single orders with custom pieces since production is 98% in-house.”
