A large part of manufacturing in the UK involves the outsourcing of certain processes to external companies in the UK and abroad.
Ensuring these suppliers have the correct credentials is a vital part of this process as the wrong decision can increase risk due to a lack of flexibility, responsiveness to capacity concerns and unexpected delays.
Whether it is a specific CNC machining process, finding companies that offer the correct machining to run a service or an assembly process. Submitting a request to Applegate PRO, detailing the specifications and requirements, deadlines, quantities and further details where relevant can provide an organisation with up to ten relevant suppliers in just 48 hours.
