Chemical Manufacturer Realizes Savings Through Different Sourcing
Eliminated product damage, increased transparency to supply change, decreased on floor inventory with consignment program
A chemical manufacturer was having issues with their manufacturer for bags. The bags would tear in-line causing multiple production issues and the manufacturer would not return messages for damaged products or missed deliveries. Colony re-sourced the material through a reparable manufacturer, re-negotiated pricing and supply chain origination, and right-sized their bags for across their national reach to 3 sizes for uniformed processing across plants. Colony now manages long-term yearly orders by consignment with the manufacturer for guaranteed delivery dates while maintaining transparency in communication with the customer.
