PureForge Expands at Blistering Rate

PureForge

Background

PureForge is a Poway-based designer and maker of hardened brake components located in Poway, CA. Founded in 2006, PureForge makes brakes through what’s called “atomic forged technology” which greatly increases their performance and safety while decreasing brake wear, maintenance costs, and environmental pollutants caused by brake dust. PureForge offers its patented Atomic-Forged technology to law enforcement agencies and commercial fleets.  

Business Challenge

PureForge needed to figure out a way around the high cost of doing business in their immediate area. They also needed to find manufacturers that could provide them with shorter lead times to get their products to market quicker. Lastly, PureForge required specialty shops with the capability to make parts that most shops don’t have the skill-set for.

Solution

Over the span of 10 years and four companies, Dave Sulli has worked with the MFG.com marketplace to find custom manufacturers for his custom manufactured parts. It left no question of where Sulli would turn to address the challenges PureForge was facing. Sulli says, “I keep coming back because I want to save money but also obtain high-quality parts, tools and textures.” Sulli finds the user interface of the MFG.com platform to be helpful in quickly meeting his objectives at PureForge.

Results

The MFG.com platform was able to give PureForge immense cost savings, time after time. In Sulli’s experience with MFG.com over the last ten years, he estimates he has saved at least $100,000. The cost savings PureForge has experienced has enabled them to grow faster than was possible when proximity was the number one prerequisite for obtaining quotes and receiving orders. From the money they saved, PureForge had the opportunity to purchase additional tools as well as pass along savings to their customers.
