Cost Reduction:

Alongside this, we also optimise capital by accurately planning our client’s production capacity and matching materials supply with demand, ensuring they hold just the right amount of inventory at the right locations. Our unique ‘pay on consumption’ financing model also means that our clients only invoice us for stock once it has been shipped and paid for by their end customer, preserving
their cash-flow for the longest possible time.

Compelxity Management:
Through vendor consolidation, we take complexity out of
our clients’ supply chains, managing their supplier networks from materials sourcing, procurement and materials management through to customer fulfilment.
