Global Supply Chain Management: International Procurement Offices (IPOs), Intellectual Property (IP), Certificates of Conformity, Materials Management

Materials Management, Certificates of Conformity, Intellectual Property (IP) and International Procurement Offices (IPOs) — Managing Your Global Supply Chain Needs

Remove the risk from global supply chain and materials management by working with a leader who understands how to work with electronic components suppliers. Every year, TT Electronics Integrated Manufacturing Services (IMS) secures millions of individual parts and components used in printed circuit board assemblies (PCBA), cable harnesses and complete integrations for our customers. We specialize in sourcing components used in electrical and electronics manufacturing for the aerospace, defense, medical, industrial and rail transportation industries.

From hard-to-find components to standardized parts, TT Electronics identifies options based on specific manufacturing needs.

When products require custom manufacturing solutions, we have a global reach in Asia underpinned by highly experienced sourcing teams in China, USA, UK and Romanina who have long-term relationships with a wide variety of manufacturers. Our supply chain in Asia enables us to drive down total cost of ownership while still maintaining the highest levels of quality. Our team of materials management and logistics experts understands how to speak both the languages of engineers and the international customs agents so we can ensure that your components arrive on time without import or export delays.

In addition to sourcing components for today, we are always identifying potential future problems. Each year thousands of individual parts and components are retired or become obsolete. End of Life (EOL) notices cost product manufacturers millions of dollars in re-designed and re-engineered products, product delays and extra inventory sourcing and handling charges. At TT Electronics, we understand the importance of planning and offer complete lifecycle support for today and tomorrow.

By monitoring manufacturing and material selection trends worldwide, TT Electronics has early insight into at-risk parts and can perform obsolescence risk analysis before a part has been discontinued. We also understand that scheduling and engineering changes happen and therefore, we work with our global sites to secure product transfers when necessary.

At TT Electronics, your business is our business and we work to ensure that it never stops. Efficient global supply chain and materials management can offer many long-term benefits. Let TT Electronics demonstrate how our experience and global team of supply chain experts can provide options to grow your business today and tomorrow.
