CCE, a global design and manufacturing service provider, announces a significant expansion of its India-based manufacturing supply chain. Driven by market demand and after establishing robust processes to identify qualify and certify suppliers and managing multi-vendor manufacturing processes for the ferrous and non-ferrous casting industry, CCE has now broadened support to include precision machining, sheetmetal fabrication, stamping, weldments, injection molding, forging and assembly of parts.
Vinay Wagle, VP Sales & Marketing commented: “The above services are part of the innovative program that CCE launched in 2007, called ‘Design to Doorstep’ (D2D). Our goal was to leverage a select group of suppliers focused on castings to reduce the current purchase costs and improving the competitiveness of our customers by supplying specification driven parts of the highest quality from India. CCE now has functional teams of experienced manufacturing and sourcing professionals, who have extensive component procurement experience from a select group of high quality, low cost sources in India, each with an intense focus within a narrow band of industrial components and products. These functional teams have helped us build a track record of implanting successful, low-risk cost reduction strategies for our US-based, and recently UK-based, customers. Although we initially targeted our customers' commodity designs that are repetitive and stable, we have actually successfully delivered parts for new programs”.
As part of the D2D program, customers can benefit by leveraging CCE’s highly-skilled, co-located India-based engineers to gain high-impact Value Analysis/Value Engineering (VAVE) services, leading to even larger savings from existing parts and assemblies. VAVE services include, but are not limited to, cost-saving modifications to material and/or process and eventually to designs. To give you visibility during the engagement process, D2D further provides support by CCE’s local services managers, and its secure Internet-based work order management system, ‘PowerLink’. With CCE’s design engineers working in tandem with its deep resource pool of quality suppliers enables CCE, our customers get the rapid response to their offshore-based design and manufacturing needs that would otherwise have required months or years to accomplish.
