supply-chain-managementSuperior Supply Chain Management

Material is the most critical element of any manufacturing project. Material cost is typically the largest segment of product cost, and material availability and quality impacts production scheduling. Our experienced purchasing team recognizes that our customers need a partner who can align supply chain management strategy with evolving project needs and market trends. Our ERP system enables our team to view requirements across customers to determine our total annual spend on each component type and our onhand inventory. This helps us negotiate better pricing and reduce excess material charges in projects with forecast changes.

Our strong financial position enables us to offer a variety of customized stocking programs that ensure critical components are available even when lead-times are stretching out. 

Our strategy doesn’t stop there. Our engineering team works with our purchasing team to identify all options when part obsolescence is a risk. Their expertise can also be drawn on should supply chain disruption drive a need to identify alternate packaging solutions. 

In short, our supply chain management practices ensure that we consistently deliver your project at the right time and the right price.


What Our Customers Are Saying
  • They do their due diligence and homework up front. They provide excellent engineering resources and support that many companies do not provide.
  • “All the components were placed properly, fully tested by EDM. It’s one of the items we don’t really have to think about too much."
  • They poured everything they had into it and delivered us product way short of the required lead time.
  • If EDM says a product will be here on a certain day, it will be here on that day or earlier. Never later.
  • I love that they can give me an up-to-date and accurate print out and review of all of our open orders.
  • They are methodical with knowing what they’re getting into and when they go into production they make sure it’s set up right.
  • It’s one of the vendors I don’t have issues working with.
  • They have the ability to produce test fixtures, so we don’t have to develop that for ourselves. Our other suppliers need us to do that for them which adds more time and cost to me.
  • They’re low impact on my team. I don’t need to spend a lot of time supporting the manufacturing.
  • We appreciate EDM’s honesty upfront that tells us that yes or no we can make this happen.
  • They’re good with sourcing hard to find items that we have struggled with in the past.
  • It’s like working with someone in our own company.
