Best value components from our overseas production – what can we offer?:

  • We are aware of the intense commercial pressures that customers face – traditional models for sourcing metal components for the supply chain has become a much more complex process.   Significant cost savings can be made by seeking a supply source outside of Europe, in particular India, China and Korea.
  • However, there are challenges in managing this process – understanding and evaluating a forge or foundry’s capabilities, competencies, quality and capacity remotely can prove difficult and risky for mission critical components.
  • Managing the competitive tendering process and overseeing a project right through to consignment shipping and just in time delivery to your production line can be a time consuming and challenging process.
  • Developments in metal alloy technology and processes are happening all the time. Asian and domestic forges and foundry’s are developing different key areas of expertise.

We can help you here by managing the new part creation from inception through to stock holding and delivering

  • If you are unsure which manufacturing process is the most appropriate and cost effective method for your required specification, we can support you in the process.
  • There are pro’s and con’s in sourcing from a Domestic Supplier and an Asian supplier and both have to be evaluated carefully to ensure the best fit for the requirements.
