There is a lot that goes into the manufacturing of an Atom, but have you ever really stopped to think, just how much? Sure, there are a lot of labor hours in fabricating the chassis, component installation, and overall vehicle assembly; but what I'm talking about are the parts that make up these extraordinary vehicles.
TMI AutoTech has upwards of 5,000 different part numbers in our system that can be used in the production of an Atom. That's right, between individual parts and what goes into different sub-assemblies, there are more than 5,000 part numbers to keep up with. So let's meet the people that keep up with the organizing, storage, and purchasing of the parts and materials that go into building the Atom.
