November 2, 2021 - Metalworking manufacturer TAB Industries LLC, Reading, Pennsylvania, has enabled law enforcement products supplier Police Innovations, LLC, Sinking Spring, Pa. to meet quality assurance requirements for its Supplement Prisoner Adjustable Restraint (SPAR) device and shorten lead times by 400 percent. Using its signature turnkey approach, TAB Industries redesigned multiple metal parts for faster, more efficient fabrication, eliminated inconsistencies in parts manufacturing, and cut assembly to four weeks from 16 weeks while adding a high level of attention to detail, according to Matthew Planer, president of Police Innovations. “The quality is superb and their skilled workers really care about putting together a quality product for us,” says Planer. “They're a game-changer and sometimes I can't believe how they've done so well for us.”

In addition to providing design engineering, metal fabricating, and assembly services, TAB sources and stores the materials and components, provides laser cutting, welding, powder coating, testing, and packaging, and ships the finished products directly to the end user customer. TAB also manages global logistics for overseas orders. To meet demand, TAB manufactures approximately 25 of the restraint devices on a monthly production schedule.

“This business would not have been successful without TAB Industries,” says Planer. “The high level of expertise, and their willingness to work with us at every turn have been crucial for our growth.” TAB has since helped design a mobile version of the restraint system on casters that has outsold the original, stationary model.
