"There was virtually no overhead cost"

Instead of creating a fine grinding lab from scratch we used Arkin Custom Processing to get the finished product we needed.  We shipped them raw material, they shipped it back to our specs and removed foreign material, then we packaged it and sold it.  Without the machine related costs, we actually made more profits.

"The ability to save on costs is clear as day.  It just makes sense."

Our current process yields a very high amount of waste combined with reusable product.  Arkin Custom Processing was able to crush the waste fine enough to separate the reusable product from the waste.  Now, we ship them what was previously our waste, and they ship back a small truckload of our expensive reclaimed product that we put back into production.  By doing this, we have cut down on initial product costs by 67%.  That in turn saves us about $74,000 a year, while our Arkin Custom Processing contract costs us about $37,000 a year including shipping.  That means we pocketed $47,000 more than the previous year, without any equipment, employee, or utility hassles.
