These solutions range from complete lifecycle support, from concept to production or we can provide support in reducing acquisition costs by finding more appropriate sources for their products, once they have reached production to improve leadtime reduce cost and MOQ's.
This service is provided for two key reasons firstly to identify supply chain risks and develop mitigation plans to ensure continuity of supply. The second reason is to identify opportunities for cost reduction through approval of second source components subject to due diligence processes and customer approvals; this service generally lends itself to providing greater avenues of supply once completed.
