Monti cuts production time, increases part quality through ARKU contract leveling service
Cincinnati, OH – In its search for a leveling solution for its electrical industry parts, Monti Incorporated didn’t have to look far. The company found ARKU’s leveling service center literally right around the corner in Cincinnati. While the companies‘ proximity did not seal the deal, the leveling center’s turnaround time and part quality did. “We have been able to cut production times by as much as 15 percent, reduce our part rejection rate and increase product quality,” said Nate Duhl, Account Manager with Monti. “The location and dependability of ARKU makes it just another aspect of our production process. It’s like a partnership.”
Monti specializes in manufacturing and fabricating copper and aluminum conductors, insulators, and steel components for the electrical distribution industry.

The 40-year-old company provides prototyping expertise and recommends areas of savings to its OEM customers. Monti serves customers who‘s quantity needs range from limited to high-volume production. Duhl and Monti also tap into ARKU’s manufacturing expertise, consulting with leveling center supervisor Chad Ellis on quotes and new-product development processes.
