Get the right balance between cost and customization with Creation’s global solutions
To achieve growth and profitability targets, OEMs need to find the right balance between cost and customization by re-thinking their outsourcing strategy.
For OEMs, intelligent product design is more critical than ever before. Other big keys to finding the cost-customization balance are emphasizing strategic supply chain and making regional strategy a core element of your outsourcing criteria.
Through a combination of off-shoring, on-shoring and near-shoring, Creation’s global outsourcing model provides our OEM customers with the best value solution for their unique needs.
Maximize cost efficiency and market penetration with Creation’s Right-Shoring global manufacturing and supply model:
The Right Global Outsourcing Strategy
Leverage Creation’s global supply chain design and manufacturing expertise.
We’ll help you design the right outsourcing strategy for each of your products based on your risk tolerance for proven critical factors.
- Location of end customers/markets
- Time zone
- Shipping costs and time
- Import-export management
- Product size and weight
- Regulatory requirements
- Communication and language
- Sourcing strategy
An OEM’s global strategy for sourcing, procurement, manufacturing and after-market service plays a huge role in strategic cost reduction. Off-shoring, on-shoring, and near-shoring are all common terms in today’s supply networks.
At Creation we describe this global cost-risk strategy as ‘Right-Shoring’ – helping our customers determine best regional fit based on volume, expertise, technology, end market, and product and component characteristics.
Strategically Located Manufacturing Locations
Many of our customers choose Creation because their smart supply chain design aligns with our strategically located locations in four countries, including Mexico and China.
- Strengthen your relationships: To optimize transportation costs and minimize lead times to your customers in the Midwest, you might select a Creation business unit in Chicago or Milwaukee.
- Penetrate new markets: Reach new customers in China, for example, with Creation’s established manufacturing business unit in Changzhou that understands market conditions and cultural influences.
- Optimize your cost and distribution models over the product lifecycle: You could have Creation design and provide rapid prototyping in Chicago, for instance, and then sit back as we manage the manufacturing transfer to full-volume production in Creation’s Mexico business unit.
