Sonic Manufacturing understands that varied challenges you face in managing the increasingly globalized electronics supply chain:
Sourcing materials from around this planet has added complexity & risk, while international logistics has added costs & delays to the procurement process itself. Systems integration between trading partners is often lacking; leading to outdated data, mistimed transactions and poorly executed decisions. Current market conditions are often unfavorable to the OEM— including diminished component inventories, extended lead times, reduced factory capacities, rising commodity prices, a declining dollar and increased supplier consolidation.
These market forces have tested the EMS industry; and more clearly than ever segregated those who must rely on stable & repetitive products (forecasted, predictable) from those who are responsive & adaptive to the market itself (dynamic, demand-driven).
Interestingly, Sonic has found that by paying attention to the details that make us excel at demand-driven manufacturing our efficiencies have increased on stable & repetitive products. We are cost competitive in both markets; delivering rapidly to your requirements while holding service levels and low liability exposure.
