Achieve unit cost reduction through supplier development.

Supplier Development

A common practice in Europe and North America, yet underutilised here in NZ.  Supplier development programs can bring significant benefits to both parties such as shared cost reductions, improved product quality, lead time reduction and continuity of supply.

Experience Counts.

Our team have international experience across Europe and Asia in developing supplier operations.  From our NZ base, we have supported the French Multi-national Schneider Electric to develop over 25 manufacturing suppliers in the Asia Pacific region alone, bringing significant cost and on-time supply benefits within the supply chain.

Tried and tested formula.

Supplier development is a great concept to most, yet the “how” of bringing suppliers on board with the process can be tricky.  Our formula has been honed through many years of experience, leaving us with a process that builds further trust between the parties and shared gains.  As a third party, LMAC can support the process of negotiations, the implementation process and integration of bottom line benefits to both organisations.

Funding Options.

We’re accredited suppliers of many government funded initiatives that range between 40% and 100% of costs.
