Found new suppliers in low cost countries


An important and referenced Mechanical Italian Company was targeting to reduce the cost of some high tech parts so to sell its products at more aggressive price. The involved commodities were forgings, castings, fabrications…


We launched a campaign to find alternative suppliers from China or India, able to produce high technology parts at better cost. We first identified three potential Chinese suppliers for each commodity in terms of price and quality level. Then we started a rigorous pre-qualification process to then select only one supplier per commodity. We followed the entire process to qualify each chosen supplier until the delivery of first lot. All qualification phases were jointly monitored by us along with our local expeditors and the Italian Company. All qualified vendors are now extensively used by the Italian Company.
