Because Anixter performs
required quality inspections,
the manufacturer is able to save
considerable time and resources
in its manufacturing process.
One of the world’s largest manufacturers of aerospace engines relies on Anixter to provide the
assembly hardware used to complete the finished goods at the company’s manufacturing plants.
The quality of the engines is directly dependent upon the quality of materials provided by Anixter.
Because the manufacturer relies so heavily on the supply chain to deliver quality materials,
measuring and controlling these products before they are purchased and shipped is imperative.
In order to limit its operating expenses and reduce its overhead costs, the manufacturer needed
a collaborative supply chain partner to deliver quality control in a just-in-time production
schedule. With a zero-inventory model and a Six Sigma management strategy, the manufacturer
needed to ensure its supplied materials and components met quality standards to maintain
efficient and lean manufacturing facilities. With quality control processes that meet the most
stringent requirements, Anixter provided the manufacturer with an integrated system of policies
and procedures to meet its strict quality requirements.
With a core competency in supply chain best practices and quality management, Anixter has
the technical and supply chain expertise to provide quality materials delivered
