One may wonder how it is possible for a plastics company located in Akron, Ohio to work with multi-national companies, serving their international market needs. For international companies that sell their product all over the globe, it does not make sense to invest in several production regions around the world. Instead, companies will partner with supply chain manufacturers in their own country to assist with subassemblies of their final product.
Supply chain manufacturing companies typically develop the part we’ve been contracted for and then we work to ship that part to the next facility for final assembly. This allows the company developing the product and the companies that work to build that product to act as more of a cohesive team. Since we are typically just a piece of the puzzle, attention to detail is crucial. Ordering, scheduling, tracking arrival times, and part inspection all play a role in the supply chain manufacturing process.
