A.J. Freight Disclaimer

A.J. Shipping Disclaimer

A.J. Manufacturing makes every effort to protect all of the doors and windows that we ship.  We use several carriers in order to choose the best freight company for your area.   Unfortunately, sometimes freight damage does occur.

To protect yourself, it is important to always inspect your shipment upon arrival and make detailed notes on the delivery receipt of any visible damage to the crating or packaging material.  It is important to note any damage on the Bill of Lading before the carrier leaves your dock. This will allow you or A.J. to file a successful freight claim with the carrier.   If A.J. billed the freight, our customer service team will file the freight claim on your behalf.

When damage is found, contact A.J. immediately with your order number, description of the damage, and whether you will require a remake of the damaged product.   Photographs are very useful and providing them will help to expedite the claim with the freight company.

When a full or partial shipment is refused, it can cause delays between the Freight Company and notification to our customer service team so please give us a call so we can begin the replacement process.

Concealed damage, or damage found after the packaging has been opened, can also be claimed, but only for 5 days after the product has been delivered and will require photographs.

The carrier has the right to inspect the damaged product at your facility so it is important to retain that product until A.J. receives notification that the claim has been settled.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact A.J. at any time, we will walk you through the process.

With support from several of our key material, component, and processing suppliers, A.J. was honored with the opportunity to share its story of innovation, mass customization, and one piece flow with industry peers and potential customers.  The broad range of products we design and manufacture for the various markets we serve, all expect best in class performance, product durability, and top-rated customer service.  Meeting these expectations is possible when the quality of the culture provides the necessary quality of foundation to support the effects of the organization being continuously pushed and pulled.

It is nearly impossible to describe the dynamic nature of how AJ has developed into a manufacturer that produces some of the highest performing products in various markets without spending a few days touring the four facilities, but the article appropriately focused on the common thread – our employees.  Quality training, an environment that promotes skill building and communication coupled with opportunity is the key to our continued growth.  The flexibility the organization has nurtured and allowed for diversification of products, services and markets served.    We hope you enjoy a glimpse into what we do and how we do it and we invite suppliers and customers who share our values, culture, and performance expectations to contact us.

A.J. Diversification

Over the years, one of the core strategies adopted by A.J. Manufacturing has been the planned and measured diversification of product lines. Today, A.J. is involved in manufacturing more than Post Frame doors and windows; A.J. is a leader in design and manufacture of HVAC Access doors, wall panels and Contract Manufacturing.  As any good financial planner will advise, diversification allows individuals the ability to avoid risk, preserve capital and leverage growth. The same basic principles apply to companies that want to grow and expand in a responsible manner for the sake of the customers who have come to depend on a steadfast and stable supplier of product.

Positive results of this deliberate strategy are manifest in many ways for A.J. customers. Since A.J. has one common Engineering Department, innovations in one product are able to traverse product lines and benefit all. Since A.J. has one common Quality Department, the most rigorous standards and tolerances are easily adopted by all segments. Since A.J. has one common Shipping & Receiving Department, best methods for packaging and efficient product delivery are shared by each production line. Since A.J. has one common Inside Sales/Customer Service Group, customers can be sure to reach a professional representative well versed in our broad range of products.

Diversification by A.J. can help you avoid risk and reach your long-term goals, take a closer look at what makes A.J. the best value.
