Our client, an industry leading manufacturer of pumps in the UK used in waste water, air conditioning and laboratory applications across the globe.
We were approached with a brief to assist with consolidating their supply chain, as over the years this had become unmanageable with the current set up, by trading with too many vendors and not concentrating on reducing costs in areas where savings could be made.
With the information provided, we undertook a full BOM investigation , highlighting areas where cost savings could be made with very little effort required by the client. Offering alternatives to main line manufacturers, by sourcing cost effective products from the Far East and Europe, and then following this by providing a full manufacturing service.
Not only did we reduce the cost of individual assemblies, but by stocking in depth in our UK warehouse facility, we have reduced lead times and operate a complete JIT service, enabling our customer to reduce inventory and associated cost of ownership.
