Black Diamond Xtreme in Cannon Falls, Minnesota, had always contracted out practically all of its machining work. The shop produces aftermarket parts and accessories for snowmobiles and other ATVs – as well as those for its own brand of supercharged, lightweight Black Diamond-version mountain snowmobiles. But to further boost component quality, increase process control, manage costs and shorten lead times, the shop incorporated Multi-Tasking machine technology from Mazak and brought most of the previously farmed-out machining work back in-house. With Multi-Tasking capability, Black Diamond now produces parts in-house as cost effectively as having them farmed out, even to overseas suppliers. Over 95 percent of the shop’s parts are back at its U.S. operations. Black Diamond has total control over part processing, and the shop has gained the agility and responsiveness to quickly adjust to market needs and associated changes in its production operations.
