What Makes Our Strategic Sourcing Services Unique
70%-80% of costs are designed into a part as well as many potential quality and lead time issues. We work closely with clients' internal engineering teams and external manufacturing partners to perform early stage DFM/DFA. All the suppliers we work with have the capability to provide extensive technical support, acting as an extension of our client's engineering teams.
We practice Right-Shoring, the placement of manufacturing in locations that provide the best combination of core competencies and total cost of ownership. For many companies offshoring is not the optimal solution as is commonly assumed. Clients often require intensive technical support, IP protection, rapid prototyping, tight tolerances, and highly engineered materials. We only develop relationships with globally competitive suppliers having a strong US presence, regardless of where their manufacturing is located.
We hit the ground running. We are working consultants and will add value from day one setting up supplier relationships. Our experience and supplier relationships span a broad range of manufacturing technologies and markets.
All supplier transactions are direct with our clients. The relationships we develop remain with our clients after the project has been completed.
We work seamlessly side-by-side with our clients' engineers from design concept through production tooling. We bring in leading experts, often at no additional charge, to solve the toughest technical hurdles. Our network supports material science and electronics, as well as mechanical and electromechanical design engineering.
We can achieve globally competitive costs for many applications with highly automated, majority US content. Our established network of regional and multinational suppliers optimizes the mix of low cost country manufacturing and technical support capabilities.
Rapid prototyping is key to testing concepts in real time prior to starting costly production tooling. Our supplier network includes advanced quick prototyping capabilities for all the manufacturing technologies we support.
