Industrial OEM Raises Quality And Cuts Costs In China

Industrial OEM raises quality and cuts costs in China

Key facts

12% manufacturing savings

Assured quality and delivery to schedule

Satisfy peaks in demand with UK stockholding

A leading safety and security products manufacturer faced increasing price pressure, alongside supply issues around quality and reliable delivery.

We recommended our supply chain management process to raise component quality and ensure product delivery met agreed schedules. Manufacturing offshore in our facilities in China offered cost-competitive pricing too. The company had previously been struggling to meet peaks in demand. However, by taking advantage of our UK stockholding service, it could be confident of having stock held locally to meet all its order requirements. To optimise results we added additional assembly services in the second year of the project, so that products could be delivered as a full box-build, ready for shipping to its distribution network.
