RFQ LINE has helped OEMs, contract manufacturers and distributors meet a variety of purchasing challenges. Below are several of our recent success stories.
PROCESS CONVERSION NETS 22% COST SAVINGS FOR MAJOR ELECTRONICS OEM.
A U.S. based electronic equipment manufacturer had been purchasing a two piece machined part assembly for several years. Our evaluation revealed that the assembly could be produced as a solitary powder metal component at a significant cost savings. The new part meets or exceeds all required performance standards.
RAPID RESPONSE HELPS KEEP NEW PRODUCT LAUNCH ON SCHEDULE.
RFQ LINE was able to step in at the last moment and provide a competitive quote on a critical die-casted component. We were able to assess the project, consult with several affiliate manufacturers and ultimately submit a competitive quotation within 48 hours. Casting foundry recently passed on-site quality audit and stands ready to take on production responsibilities.
RESHORING STUDY REVEALS SURPRISING RESULTS.
A Canadian OEM had been experiencing repeated supply disruptions from it's offshore vendor of metal stampings. RFQ LINE was engaged to determine the feasibility of moving these parts back to North America. It was found that repeated surcharges due to escalating labor and shipping rates had eroded what were once compelling cost savings over domestic sources. The new vendor is now within 24 hour trucking distance to OEM's dock.
RESPONSIVE SUPPLEMENTAL SUPPLIER LENDS CRITICAL SUPPORT TO CUSTOMER.
Finishing and assembly plant located in Mexico sought reliable supplier to machine a variety of castings and forgings on short notice. Capacity and breakdown issues required responsive action in order to avert a potential line stoppage. RFQ LINE invited bids from several affiliate suppliers within close proximity to the customer, one of which was ultimately designated as a vendor. In addition to being cost-competitive, supplier provided direct transportation, dedicated production equipment and seven day, three-shift availability. Increased efficiency has prompted several “temporary” outsourced operations to thus far become permanent. A true win-win situation.
