Arrival Electronics are looking to challenge the myth of being just another kitting company. Component purchasing is still challenging in today’s market and is not as straight forward as it may seem, said Steve Drew, Sales Manager of Arrival Electronics. There are so many variables involved that often a purchasing person can get swamped with the options available in sourcing their electronic component solution and managing the supply chain. The creation of kitting companies throws this further into confusion – commonly we hear the following lines, ”if we employ someone to buy components doesn’t this just add extra unnecessary cost?” or “my contract manufacturing company does that”
There are many benefits to customers using service companies such as Arrival Electronics all of which are demonstrable. These can be from simple overhead savings on processing within procurement, accounts, quality control and logistics to realising the benefits of a global purchasing power. Where a customer has a particular level of spend that is not attracting great support from manufacturers and distributors alike, once it is combined with other customer spends this can produce necessary benefits in terms support, focus and improved pricing. Further benefits of using a component specialist such as Arrival Electronics is a huge reduction in our customer’s inventory holding which has an instant positive impact in their cash flow.
Arrival Electronics is also focussed on the customer’s engineering teams, unusual in the industry these days. By working closely with engineers, Arrival looks to support design engineers in their component selection, either by offering products from their own franchised supplier base, or with market knowledge to provide useful information at the start of a project, rather than after a design is complete.
This becomes a true end to end service offering and customers can see savings at various levels by using component and manufacturing specialist’s like Arrival Electronics.
So why not use someone like Arrival, and as they say. “Get Your Kit Off” them, meet with the team at Southern Manufacturing, Stand A26.
