Reducing Vendors – Cost Savings Measures

To add, maintain, etc. multiple vendors in your Purchasing Department’s systems can be very costly.  That is why a vendor, with multiple capabilities, can be a cost savings measure to your company.

AmeriStar has multiple different manufacturing services available, eliminating the need, in many instances, for multiple vendors in your system.

With some frequency, when I am calling on a customer (most often a new customer), they tell me a story regarding how they have obtained parts, from some of our competitors in the past.  For example, one customer 1) sourced his sheet stock material from a steel distributor, then 2) sent it out for processing (i.e. stamping, bending, laser cutting, etc.), then 3) was sending it to a 3rd vendor to have it plated, powder coated, etc.  I explained that we at AmeriStar take complete responsibility for all of these 3 operations, and would deliver his parts “complete, per print” saving him a great deal of time, not to mention his transportation cost of transferring these parts from vendor to vendor to vendor.

AmeriStar offers:

Metal Stamping, CNC Machining, and Assembly (Short and Long Run).  Our stock inventory of standard form dies means lower tooling and run costs.  We have complete in-house tool production and maintenance departments.
