Supply-Line Management

DSC02977

With 85 years of institutional experience, a trained workforce and a 200,000 square-foot facility, Ferriot runs multiple assembly lines to meet the customer’s needs. Just as our quality control extends to every product, our “on-time-delivery controls” apply to everything we make.

In other words: The commitment of quality production, combined with on-time delivery, depends on diligent supply-chain management.

In products ranging from medical devices to business machines, Ferriot draws on decades of experience in juggling networks of domestic and global of suppliers. Our finished products have included up to 450 different parts and pieces — per assembly.

For each subassembly or finished product, we follow the same proven steps for effective supply-chain management.

The key is meticulous attention to detail — in ordering, scheduling and tracking arrival times not to mention the task of inspecting parts and pieces both produced in-house and received from suppliers around the corner and around the world.

A quick word about quality control: When working with first-time suppliers, we inspect every piece of inventory in the first three lots that arrive at our plant. Only if there are no defects do we move to an inspection of random samples.

Ferriot also monitors Purchase Price Variances based on fluctuations in resin costs. We make every attempt to drive efficiency by purchasing in cost-efficient lot sizes.
