Some might suggest the word "partner" is often tossed out a bit too liberally by service providers in business-to-business oriented circles. So, when trying to separate the "bull from the herd", when it comes to choosing, or partnering with, an outsource for your machined and laser processed materials and components, we offer these 3 keys to look for before you step into any outsourcing relationship that is in any way critical to your supply chain:
Because so much of our work here at Accumet begins with a prototyping, design-for-manufacurability (DFM), and/or process development phase, we've learned that the rate at which we produce positive outcomes is much higher when a collective posse from both sides can get together in the shop and roll up their sleeves. If a "paatner" you're talking with isn't willing to open up the barn doors and work with you side by side, you might find another ranch down the street to hitch your wagon to.
As a progressive supply chain partner, we keep a solid supply around of the things we process with routine. We also work hand-in-hand with our customers to create inventory stocking plans that keeps their most often processed materials flowing through like a river at just the pace they need. We've been managing stock on a variety of ceramic materials, metals, frozen epoxies, metals, absorbers, adhesives, and more for over 40 years, so you might say we've learned a thing or two about inventory control. Ask the next vendor who comes-a-callin' what their experience is when it comes to supply chain management--you'll get the gist.
