What We Do
Hupp Aerospace / Defense is a leading provider of Tailored Kitting Solutions and Supply Chain Services to industry and government. Our customers include major MRO providers, the Department of Defense, Foreign Militaries and Fleet Operators.
Hupp pioneered the effective use of tailored kitting, the Hupp Kit®, for improving parts reliability so you can reduce maintenance cycle time, improve mission readiness and meet your demanding production schedules. Our Tailored Kitting Solutions are a key complement to the principles of LEAN and are designed to streamline the procurement process. Benefits of kitting include sharply reduced part handling (touches), minimized inventory levels, elimination of parts shortages, and lower cost of bringing required parts to the point of use. It all adds up to significant efficiency gains for our customers.
At Hupp we have an array of kitting and supply chain management capabilities. Our customers have come to rely on us to help them overcome some of their most difficult supply challenges. Whether you are an MRO activity, OEM, Fleet Operator or government entity, we invite you to contact us to learn more about how Hupp can bring the reliability, efficiency and cost-lowering results of tailored kitting to your operation.
