A small commercial product manufacturer came to us to increase efficiency and reduce cost through outsourcing. However, many times there are factors that have nothing to do with cost that must be taken into account. For example, they were a proud Midwestern company and wanted to maintain their roots, as well as the quality of their product.
Knowing this, we found them a skilled co-manufacturer in nearby Indiana and monitored the production process to assure that the quality was maintained. Then we dug deep into their ordering process. We found that by ordering larger quantities, they improved their response to increased customer orders, while keeping their storage costs relatively low.
We saved them money by increasing efficiency, decreasing expenses by at least 12 percent, and freeing them of the hassle of production. Now they could focus on the things they were best at: design and distribution. Not only that, they were able to keep the Made In The USA label on all of their products. It was a win-win for the clients and the customers, which made it a win for Blue Pearl.
