Low Cost Country Sourcing
Low cost country sourcing is for many businesses a high risk venture and without external help and guidance, a long way from being implemented.
We have extensive experience locating suppliers for a range of core product supplies in low cost countries. Countries with lower labour and production costs which combined with the logistics cost are still more competitive than sourcing locally in the west.
Currently our Interims have sourced a variety of products from:
- Eastern Europe (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Rumania)
- South East Asia (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Korea)
- China, Mexico, India and Pakistan
Typical products/ services recently sourced include:
- Metal forming, welding, metal deposition, die casting, machining and painting
- Plastics extrusion, blown and injection moulded, some with inserts
- Rubber compounding, compression, injection and extrusion moulding
- Cabling, electronic components, board population and testing
- Back office processing and call centres.
Localised Interims can locate suitable suppliers, obtain quotations, monitor tooling and first article manufacture, set up the supply chain, and review the quality of ongoing production providing secure future supplies at a competitive price.
