  • Rigorous process documentation

  • Risk assessment

  • First time run on production equipment whenever possible

  • Selection of the right test strategy

  • Attention to detail

  • Excellent communication channel

SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
 

We offer the benefits of long-term supplier partnerships with supply chain and materials management systems geared to customers' requirements. Supporting our dedicated supply teams at our key manufacturing sites are two International Procurement Offices (IPO) situated in the heartland of component manufacture in China and India.

At each of our manufacturing locations, a team of dedicated supply chain experts manages the material pipelines for our business to include value-added services such as:

  • Schedule changes

  • Engineering changes

  • Obsolescence management

  • Sourcing and identifying difficult components

  • Import and export control regulations

  • Support of product transfers to low cost facilities

  • Logistics support (Kanban, EDI, Pull agreement, direct fulfilment)

Our IPOs provide access to low cost, quality assured materials, components and services. By working directly with local suppliers in Asia, we're able to remove the risk often associated with off-shore sourcing through local agents.
