Carpin Manufacturing compliments its domestic manufacturing capabilities with global sourcing for many of its products.
Having imported products from Asia for over 25 years, we understand what it takes to implement a successful supply chain strategy to deliver intelligent costs savings without compromising quality or delivery.
Carpin has extensive experience and expertise in designing globally sourced supply chain solutions for virtually any type of metal stamped or injection-molded product. Our global network of approved manufacturers is continually monitored by dedicated personnel on the ground to ensure that customer expectations are met and exceeded.
Our in-house design engineering team will work closely with you and your team to achieve required manufacturing and quality control specifications, including full traceability all the way from raw materials to finished product delivery.
We have dedicated quality control personnel in Asia who perform on-site audits and pre-production surveys to ensure that production planning and manufacturing schedules and quality targets are being met and exceeded. As part of this service we can offer verifiable visual inspections and performance benchmarks, as required.
Once any Asian sourced product arrives at our factory in Waterbury CT, our in-house quality control personnel then perform additional testing to verify the QA findings of our Asian personnel, ensuring that every imported part meets the exact same inspection and functional testing criteria as per customer design requirements. This additional round of QC testing provides Carpin customers with complete confidence that every product will be made to the same high quality standards regardless of its origins.
As part of our comprehensive global sourcing service we offer the following capabilities:
• New product design consultation
• Re-design and cost-reduction programs for existing products
• Lead-time reduction initiatives
• Matching your product requirements with the appropriate Asian manufacturer
• Establishing and developing quality metrics and testing standards
• Physically checking the quality of the production in Asia prior to shipping
• Physically checking the quality of the product upon arrival at our warehouse
• Maintaining an sufficient level of safety stock to accommodate production surges
These and other global sourcing initiatives serve to ensure that every Carpin customer achieves outstanding customer service with the lowest total cost of ownership possible. In addition to global sourcing we also offer customized JIT delivery and customer managed inventory solutions that serve to minimize inventory carrying costs while ensuring an uninterrupted supply of product.
