PART SUPPLY & SOURCING
Reduce costs through strategic sourcing
In an increasingly global and competitive market, strategic sourcing has become more important than ever. Generally, the primary objective is reducing costs but sourcing also assures that pre-set requirements are met, and that quality is upheld.
Turned and milled parts
With over 30 years of experience in the market, UFAB has the expertise and the developed supply chain to coordinate and streamline your procurement. You reduce costs through consolidating volumes – safe, easy and hassle-free.
UFAB accommodates a wide array of products. In addition to the raw materials needed for our own production we carry components in stainless materials, milled and turned parts as well as standard components. The range of standard components is extensive, including pumps, sensors, pipe, controls, plastic components, hinges and glass for doors. Sourcing also includes services such as surface treatment, painting and varnishing.
Products assembled by UFAB may contain up to 2,000 different components. Naturally, these are the components we specialize in, mainly in the following five categories: turned parts, milled parts, pipes, sheet metal and castings. For our customers, UFAB will be a strategic partner in the procurement of these, where our long experience and large network of contacts will come in handy. We can also act as a supermarket for all your component needs. Having one source and one contact saves both time and costs, in particular when dealing with sizeable volumes.
You can also get material kitted in sequence directly to your assembly line, packed and marked according to request and specifications.
What challenges do you have in sourcing?
“How do we streamline our purchasing process?”
Strategic sourcing is a driver for continued growth. With UFAB’s expertise, established contacts and a supplier base we can centralize the process, thereby streamlining and reducing costs.
“The right articles, at the right time and at the right price”
UFAB works together with a competitive global supplier base. A long-standing collaboration where good relationships, experience, structure and routines help us procure components at the right time and at the right price.
“Our suppliers and logistic setup need to have the least possible environmental impact”
Most companies have requirements when it comes to sustainability, including social, ethical and environmental factors. We strive to meet our customers’ sustainability policies and only chose suppliers with safe, fair, legal and humane working conditions. Sustainability is an important factor in our own operation including measuring the proportion of CO2 caused by our transports and have action plans to reduce our impact. We also steer our suppliers towards environmentally friendly packaging and shipping alternatives.
“We require components of top-quality”
UFAB’s longstanding relationships with the supplier base ensures the quality of delivery. In particular through industrialization at the supplier and component level.
“We need documentation of logistics flow, suppliers and price”
We document everything throughout the procurement process. UFAB’s purchasing department has a well-established system support that allows our customers to feel safe with all the documentation.
“We want to reduce costs”
By consolidating volumes and gathering your procurement with us, the process becomes easier and safer, saving you both time and money. Components included in many different machines are usually already in our stock.
Customers on land, at sea and in the air
UFAB work with customers in a variety of industries. Packaging, medicine, automotive, aircraft and agricultural machhinery. This is a wide range of fields with one thing in common, our assignments require precision – in their execution and in their delivery.
With experienced CAD design and production in-house, we can easily take your idea from drawing to production and get samples and prototypes back to you rapidly. Working closely with customers enables continuous improvement and guarantees the quality of the finished product.
Our extensive experience in the field means that we can offer solutions to the most complicated sheet metal designs. Your product is manufactured in our sheet metal forming machines and assembled by our certified welders.
Small high volume components or large and complex components. Our machine park can machine materials such as steel, stainless steel and aluminium. Together with our subcontractors, we can offer you end-to-end solutions and short lead times.
With flexibility and expertise, we assemble both complete machines and subsystems. In large takted flows or smaller series. The assembly can be part of a complete production process or as a separate service.
