Power Generator Skids

One of the World’s leading manufacturers of power generation equipment had been supplied by the same supplier for many years. The supplier actually used to be their in-house packing operations and many years ago the company split off working as a private business just doing the same packing.

We started talking to the lead buyer and it quickly became obvious that they were paying far too much money, in the end we saved them a several hundred thousand pounds on our like-for-like costings. Since that day in partnership with their design engineers, logistics and quality departments we constantly look at the packaging designs for both existing products and for the many new projects they work on – so much so that in an average year we will work through over 250 different designs for them…

Service levels for this business is critical as the skids are large and space is at a premium. To alleviate the space issue we deliver at least once a day on our own transport and our driver vendor manages their stock. All design changes are made and stored on Solidworks allowing complete traceability of how a project progresses and production control in our factory. Our supply performance is audited and today we held up as one of their best suppliers across all KPI’s.
