With the new requirements taking affect our company started doing something rather odd. They started piecing Flex together

We cut hundreds of feet of flex each day. It is cut and the ends terminated before being packaged for the house it is going to, if they cut a 20 foot piece and have 5 feet remaining they are now piecing it together with collars to make up a useable length

we make the flex in house and box it up for shipping, although most of it is shipped within the building to be cut

by the end of the week they have a huge pile of scrap cut and on saturdays they piece it together
