If the product you are buying is not from an authorized Technical Distributor or the manufacturer, does the manufacture warranty apply?

Authorized Technical Distributor

  • Contractually authorized by the supplier to purchase and properly manage materials to ensure
    shelf life, specifications, certifications, and warranty transfer to the customer as if the product was purchased directly from the original manufacturer. **Unauthorized converters can offer product but it may not be supported by warranty and certification of manufacturer**
  • Technically trained staff by the material manufacturer to support product selection and application specific requirements with continuing education and technical support
  • Stock available locally and willing to stock to reduce lead time and offer a broad range of material options for customers as needed.
  • Certified quality system providing required documentation, traceability, and certification from both the manufacturer and relevant certification agencies.
  • Rapid response to customer inquiries and quotation requests. If the information required isn’t immediately available, updates will be provided until your request is addressed.
  • Flexible order requirements from quick turn parts through high volume production, KraFAB will work with the customer to provide solutions and options for their unique and often changing requirements. From minimum order quantities, delivery schedules, terms and conditions, quality requirements, and design revisions, KraFAB is quick moving and willing to find unique solutions to meet your requests.

In addition to our benefits as an Authorized Distributor, there are additional benefits to being an Authorized Converter including…

  • Contractually authorized to fabricate (convert) materials from the manufacturer to the specified form required by the customer using equipment and procedures determined and supported by the manufacturer. Authorized converters are trained by the manufacturer in order to offer warranty supported by the manufacturer. **Unauthorized converters can offer product but cannot offer equivalent warranty and certification of manufacturer. **
  • Warranty and certifications from the manufacturer flow through to the customer because the product did not leave the authorized distribution network. ** Authorized converters are trained by the manufacturer in order to offer warranty supported by the manufacturer.**
  • Flexible order requirements are even more important on converted items. KraFAB can offer superior flexibility to meet your changing demands on minimum order quantities, delivery schedules, and design revisions.
