Guardian Fence Improves Production Efficiency & Lowers Costs

August 11, 2015

Guardian Fence

Guardian Fence Suppliers manufactures chain-link fencing, chain-link gates, mini mesh, barbed wire, dog kennels, and many types of accessory wires. Founded in 1981 in Columbia, SC, Guardian Fence expanded sales and distribution departments in 1986 to a larger facility to better serve the Midlands. It is the only company to manufacture, supply and install its own fencing products in South Carolina.

Guardian Fence is dedicated to its customers and cares as much about people as the products the company produces. There were several areas of the business that management sought to improve.   Inventory control and management was the first task at hand, followed by help with a sales and marketing strategy, planning, and implementation, and lastly hands-on training on the production floor. Guardian management reached out to the South Carolina Manufacturing Extension Partnership (SCMEP) to help with these tasks.
