How To Tell If Your Metal Manufacturer Is Versatile Enough For OEMs
May 19, 2017
Keeping your production lines at capacity and meeting customer demand is less complicated if your metal manufacturing supplier always delivers quality parts on time.
That sounds easy enough, unless you manage purchasing for an OEM – then you know how difficult it is for your supply base to meet this standard.
Imagine your revenue potential if your metal manufacturer could reduce pressure on your procurement budget and keep pace with your demand in addition to delivering quality parts on time. The right metal manufacturer should exceed at these standards and more.
Is your metal manufacturing supplier versatile enough to perform at the level your OEM requires for business growth? Answer the questions below to find out.
- Does your supplier show you financial health metrics and independent audit scores to prove it is financially strong?
- Are you satisfied with the quality of all metal parts your supplier has delivered in the past year?
- Does your supplier ensure your production line runs at capacity by always delivering your orders on time?
If you answered mostly “yes” to the questions provided here, it’s possible you’re partnered with a metal manufacturing supplier that’s versatile enough to meet your OEM’s standards.
If you answered mostly “no” to the questions, your metal manufacturing supplier is probably not versatile enough to meet your OEM’s standards or help you grow.
When you’re ready to take the next step in partnering with a supplier that meets your quality, capacity and growth demands, schedule a consultation with a metal manufacturing expert at Miller Fabrication Solutions.
