We spend a great deal of our time in the field working with our clients on a wide variety of supply chain projects. As you will imagine it is amazing what we learn about manufacturing supply chains whilst visiting companies of all sizes in every corner of the world. If you have a project you would like some outside perspective on, give us a call.
There is a great deal of overlap in electronic manufacturing. Most components can be used in a huge variety of applications. For example, a chip used in the telecoms arena may be just as useful in an automotive application or vice versa. This creates an opportunity to cross sell between PCBA companies. We hold stock and usage data for hundreds of companies that allows us to see these matches and highlight cross selling opportunities. This may be useful to you if you are in either a surplus or shortage situation.
