The Evertiq Conference, TEC Linköping

Andrew Maddock – CEO – SMS – Smart Made Simple

Andrew is speaking at this conference 10:20 to 10:50, May 29 2018

The Original Component Manufacturers (OCM) of component parts are continuing to disrupt the sourcing stream as we know it through their ongoing merger and acquisition activity.

2017 was a challenging year as EMS companies began to feel the knock-on effect of previous years M&A actions.

These challenges have arisen in the form of; extended lead-times, ranging from 12 weeks right through to 36 months, the term ‘allocation’ is back on our purchasing departments agenda, obsolescence of older technology and of course, as demand increases for sought-after component parts, the price fluctuates at an unprecedented amount.

In this 30-minute presentation, Mr. Andrew Maddock, CEO of SMS – Smart Made Simple, a UK based industry leading EMS provider will discuss the origins of the current supply chain disruption and what companies can do to secure their future desired state. www.smartmadesimple.com.
