Let's face the facts -

Procurement and Supply Chain Management is complex, and yet it is one of the most fundamental of all business processes. You and your organization must satisfy an almost overwhelming number of demands and yet TIME is never on your side!

 

Think a California supplier can’t meet cost or spec? Think again!

Agilent, General Dynamics, Labcon, Medtronic, Zodiac Aerospace, Stanford, Tesla, the US Navy, and more than 100 other organizations throughout California and beyond sourced more than $30MM of critical products and processes that in some way were assisted by 101MFG.

 

Reduce the time, complexity and effort to find great suppliers -

Spanning part or all of the scope from online and other research, commodity award or progressing to a bidder's list, bidder's conference, Qualified Supplier List and finally the RFI / RFQ / RFP - evaluation, negotiation and award. That's a terrific investment of time and resources, so of course you have to balance the costs of the procurement activity with the value of finding the best suppliers.

 

27,000 California manufacturers -

Depending upon your needs - commodity, sole-source, new product/NPI, high mix - low volume, second-source, strategic supplier or outsourced production contract – finding the right, qualified suppliers is like a needle-in-a-haystack. You need valid and timely information and wouldn't it be nice if we sifted through 27,000 websites - so you didn't have to?
