Instead of telling you that we are the best in the industry, we will simply show you. Take a look at just some of our success stories throughout recent years.

Case 1: Sourcing Solutions

Case:

Company needed difficult high-precision gears, eventually an entire gearbox. They were concerned with higher costs in the U.S. and were worried about going abroad because of the risks of international sourcing.

Issue:

Client had multiple vendors and multiple parts, taking resources to put all these parts together, impacting cost structure for procurement, assembly, and inventory.

Solution:

Took over internal resources to save 50% on supply chain process.

  • Difficult gearbox (very small)
  • Sourced from 50 vendors to find welding, sheet metal, gear production, and assembly in-house at a competitive price
  • Factory was audited by client, including passing a 100% torque test to reach torque requirements

Case 2: Food Service

Case:

Company was working to introduce a new custom product line. They were concerned with the costs associated with sourcing in the U.S.

Issue:

Domestic costs were negatively impacting projected revenues.

Solution:

Solution:

We became their outsource procurement department.
