The arrival of spring in the United States means more than warmer temperatures and budding flowers. It also means the construction industry is gearing up for its busiest time of year, and an uptick in window shade orders.
The busy season makes it more important than ever that a manufacturing partner can deliver quality products on time. Here are some ways Draper delivers to make sure it’s business as usual for our customers:
Thanks to our shade customers, Draper has experienced rapid window shade sales growth, so we have been busy adding capacity to keep up. We’ve made investments in factory space, new equipment, and additional people. That means our production capacity has already been ramping up to handle higher volume, so we are ready, willing, and able to fill your orders!
Short lead times, good product quality
Many of our competitors continue to struggle with long lead times and missed shipping dates. But Draper can deliver! Because of our continued investment in equipment, people, and optimization of manufacturing processes, we remain confident in our ability to provide high-quality shading products when you need them.
We still manufacture our shades in our Spiceland, Indiana, facility, giving us more control over quality and scheduling. We use quality fabrics from USA weavers Phifer and Mermet. Draper receives multiple fabric shipments from both companies on a weekly basis, so even if our vast inventory runs short, replacement fabric is already on the way.
Interior and exterior solutions
Sometimes the best solution for managing natural light and solar heat gain is interior shading. Other times, the best answer is an exterior solution. We offer flexible solutions for interior, exterior, and dual facade applications.
