At Klise Manufacturing Co., a challenge to create a new custom moulding is always welcome, and build-ups are a Klise favorite. Fran Kent, Estimator and Customer Service Coordinator shows her enthusiasm, "I love getting build-up requests! The process is actually quite simple, especially when we have our engineers to create drawings or to interpret client provided drawings. Even when a build-up only incorporates two or three patterns, the finished product is always worth admiring."
There are two options for creating build-ups through Klise. Patterns can be requested, quoted, and shipped separately to be assembled on-site or Klise can assemble the product in house and ship ready-made. The addition of 3MM tape or thin nails is provided as an option to prevent disassembly or to make the application of the wood finish an easier task.
Requesting a build-up is simple. Customers are welcome to call to speak with a customer service representative and describe what patterns they would like to be included and the overall dimensions they would need in the application (i.e. Bamboo, Dentil, Bead, Fret, etc.). Customer Service Representatives are then able to refer a customer to the right pages in the Klise Catalog to view their options. After patterns have been chosen, customers can instruct Klise on preferances for pattern layout or assembly, a drawing is created for approval, and a quote is generated. Should a drawing contain a pattern with different aspects than those found in Klise's 6,000 pattern Inventory, Klise is able to create a new custom pattern to match.
Customers who already know what patterns they would like and how they would like them to be assembled, need only contact Klise and provide a drawing for the quoting process. Or, they can also provide a description of their vision for the assembly, which Klise engineers then use to produce their own drawing. "The options are only limited by one's own imagination," states Craig Hoyer, Sales Manager, "In the past few months, we've done a couple different build-ups that range from simple two pattern trims to elaborate 6 pattern crowns. Build-Ups really can reflect any desired design trend."
