Procurement

Strategic sourcing, supply chain solutions, and procurement consulting services

We have decades of experience building strategic sourcing best practices and leading-edge procurement processes that have resulted in increased efficiency, flexibility, and responsiveness, in supply chains.

The procurement process of identifying the right suppliers, negotiating contracts, and executing agreements is a complex business.At US Manufacturing Solutions, we carefully assess the needs and requirements of our customers and take into account both traditional procurement considerations such as price, quality, and proximity, and other concerns such as flexibility and supply line integrity.

Our team provides an integrated range of services including management of contracts, purchasing, tendering, inspection, expediting, quality control, logistics, and materials management.

US Manufacturing Solutions can help reduce costs, ensure quality, shorten sourcing lead times and mitigate risks. We can pre-qualify suppliers, develop the relationship for you and ensure that the goods or services you require are provided in the right place at the right time for the right price. With decades of purchasing experience on projects both massive and small, US Manufacturing Solutions partners with the best strategic suppliers for basic and fabricated materials, world-class logistics for delivery and inspection, and industry-leading accounting and inventory controls.

Our Procurement Expertise Includes:

Flexible Procurement Outsourcing

In the real world, clients don’t have cookie-cutter issues, so we don’t use one when helping you meet you procurement objectives. US Manufacturing Solutions provides clients a flexible set of procurement outsourcing options, custom configured to meet your specific needs. From end-to-end procurement outsourcing to point solutions like category management, strategic sourcing and procurement operations, we get you more bang for your buck.

Tech-Enabled Transformation

Manufacturers have often been limited in their capability to extend procurement processes by internal IT departments and physical ability to handle complex, massive orders. As a result, procurement seemed to have a technical speed limit. However, developments into the use of cloud-based technology in the last 10 years have made advanced analytics and processing capabilities near limitless. The next level of procurement trends in the supply chain is going to focus on how technology improvements in speed, reliability, and accessibility can be leveraged to benefit the supply chain. We analyze a company’s procurement operating model and offer an informed, agnostic point of view on how various technologies can enable processes and lay the groundwork for future capabilities.

Direct and Indirect Materials Sourcing

US Manufacturing Solutions helps companies determine potential areas of savings relating to both indirect SG&A costs as well as direct cost of goods sold.

We can help with any aspect of your direct materials sourcing initiative, from supplier identification through RFP, negotiations, supplier qualifications & implementation. We understand that the procurement of direct materials must be directly linked to customer satisfaction. If an inexpensive alternate product is in any way inferior to the product it replaces, then the cost saving benefits do not outweigh our customer’s, and their customer’s, ultimate satisfaction. Our goal is to help you find the right supplier, in the right geography at the right price to deliver you quality and dependable direct goods, direct service and raw materials that you use in your end offering. We are often able to accomplish cost reduction while simultaneously maintaining or improving your quality and lead times.

US Manufacturing is also highly experienced in procurement consulting solutions for indirect materials and services. We have exceptional experience sourcing indirect supply categories such as facilities maintenance, logistics, CAPEX, office supplies, packaging, and more. We can help your business attain both hard- and soft-dollar savings in virtually any branch of indirect spend.
