Procurement support

Minimize the total cost of buying the C-parts you need.

We manufacture fasteners and other cold formed metal parts in house. In addition, we maintain and develop our own network of qualified suppliers from which we can source a wide range of commodities. This combination ensures that we always provide you with a best-in-class price mix for whatever C-part you need.

As the effort of managing your C-parts is often very cost-intensive, it is worth to consider outsourcing operational and administrative activities such as purchase ordering. Turning these over to us gives you access to our sourcing expertise and capacity. This leaves your buyers with more time to spend on the procurement of more strategically critical parts.

Leveraging years of hands-on experience, our global team of procurement professionals can also help you with all aspects of procurement strategy development and implementation. We then evaluate and benchmark your current operations to determine for which strategic buying activities outsourcing offers clear value. Next, we define and implement agreements that maximize the chance of capturing potential savings.

As your strategic sourcing partner, we act as an intermediary between you and each of your C-parts suppliers. Having only one point of contact for all C-parts involved significantly reduces the cost of performing time-consuming activities, such as invoicing and contracting. By aggregating demand from multiple customers and decreasing your total number of suppliers, we can reduce risks and secure lower part prices as well.

  • Order and invoice processing
  • Supplier selection and development
  • Contract negotiation
  • Supplier base consolidation
