If you have some live tools producing injection moulded components for you, there are a number of reasons why you might be considering relocating them with a new supplier. Tool transfers are a large area of new business for Kavia, in this article we give examples of:
- Moving tools back to UK from offshore manufacture
- UK re-location, issues with current suppliers
Both scenarios have some common ground; none of new tool transfers customers move tools for an increase in manufacturing cost, with collaboration we will offer a cost saving on injection moulding and added value services.
Second, it is difficult to ignore our very high customer retention rate since we were founded in 1979. Kavia also offers a financially stable business that manages its overhead and material pricing giving whilst offering our customer flexible manufacturing at consistent pricing.
What we are hearing more often from new tool transfer customers is their current suppliers have lost their focus on continuous quality, delivery performance and added value services. This particularly the case on long-standing projects, Kavia is the opposite here engaging with our customers and our industry supply chain to ensure we are not standing still. It is important for both our businesses to be changing and evolving to keep an advantage in our respective markets.
We established components and products Kavia works hard to ensure quality, delivery and consistency of supply with flexible manufacturing solutions. We are always reviewing alternative material solutions. With a strong customer relationship we can work together to reduce manufacturing costs and whilst increasing the injection moulding quality.
For new and evolution projects we encourage early supplier engagement so new components can gain maximum market share for lower manufacturing costs. Check out our new homepage content on injection moulding, design, project management, UK toolmaking and added value services tabs.
Taking the two scenarios bulleted above: we have achieved a lower manufacturing cost for one a customer than current suppliers they source in China and Malaysia plus improving cash flow and more flexible manufacturing service.
We are helping some other UK manufacturers to reduce their costs by rationalising the division of parts supplied and flexible scheduling.
