Metal Stamping Supply Chain Management
Wiegel offers service in all phases of metal stamping production from early design concepts to tooling to production of finished metal stampings. This is a critical business model we developed to allow customers to reduce their supply base and source the entire manufacturing process under one facility. Wiegel keeps a tight chain of suppliers that are thoroughly vetted through our approval process and qualifying audit which focuses on quality, price and delivery. We also track performance scoring of all suppliers based on critical quality metrics. We partner with highly qualified material suppliers to source quality raw material at cost-effective rates for competitive overall distribution costs, and we work with a small network of preferred suppliers for secondary applications such as plating, coating and finishing applications, welding and molding. When we take on new and existing programs, the movement of production through all levels of our supply chain is fully managed and led by our expert team of project managers assigned to those projects to ensure timing, delivery and other critical factors are always being met.
ORGANIZED PLANNING AND LOGISTICS
No matter where our customers are in the world, we are capable of managing the supply chain for production, handle and delivery of parts to any regional or international geographic location and to multiple locations. We plan and organize special processes custom developed by our process engineers to find the most efficient production process to fit our manufacturing customers’ project needs. You can rely on Wiegel to consistently ship and receive materialsand partsto arrive at production facilities on-time. When Wiegel is handling your program, materials and parts are always scheduled accordingly with reliable material suppliers and secondary process vendors so there are no breaks in the supply chain and we’re always ahead and in control of every time sensitive distribution flow.
We have a very systematic approach when it comes to transparent communication on project development between our project team and our customers. Our manufacturing customers are always kept informed with real-time updates on program status. We share Gantt charts with customers showing project development on a weekly basis and schedule frequent conference calls and meetings to keep all stakeholders aligned with goals and updates and confirm the project is moving through our timeline as planned. On-going part orders from existing customers are managed by our premier customer service team and can be tracked on our customer portal.
It’s our goal to simplify the metal stamping supply chain by offering a comprehensive range of stamping capabilities and supporting services and managing pre- and post-production operations for our manufacturing customers. This system saves our customers on project timing and production cost without compromising quality and customer requirements.
