In order to manufacture a finished product, many pieces need to come together.
For most companies, it just isn’t possible to manufacture every part of the end product on their own. Instead, manufacturers rely on supply chains.
As a tier 1 supplier, Sisler Companies makes it possible for manufacturers to keep their inventory stocked and distribute their products on time. Component management plays a big role in this process.
In this article, we’re exploring what a tier 1 supplier is, the importance of component management, and how these services can help you.
What is a tier 1 supplier?
In most cases, when an OEM manufactures a final product, they need help from suppliers. Suppliers provide OEMs with the materials they need to build a product. A tier 1 supplier is the most important part of this supply chain. They work directly with OEMs and provide them with the devices that are needed to make a final product.
In turn, tier 1 suppliers typically rely on tier 2 suppliers, and the process continues as you go further down the supply chain. Lower level suppliers usually provide raw materials, while tier 1 suppliers provide parts and devices that are closer to the end product.
How component management plays a role
At Sisler Companies, we provide the basic receiving and storage services that you can expect from a supplier. But, we also go above and beyond by providing advanced component management services. This means that the companies and OEMs we work with don’t have to worry about complex sub-assembly of components.
Our team can purchase components on a customer’s behalf, assemble them, package and label the final products, maintain inventory, and ship the products on a timely basis.
