Suppliers Sourcing & Supply Chain Development & Management

When it comes to sourcing complex parts and subassemblies, IPE uses a proven sourcing process that includes the following steps:

Identify a number of suppliers that meet the customer specifications
Quote suppliers to filter out those that do not meet cost objectives
Audit remaining suppliers to filter out those that do not have the required facilities and management controls in place
OEM customer to review the remaining 2-3 suppliers and eliminate any that do not meet their criteria
Obtain samples from remaining supplier(s) for evaluation by IPE and OEM customer and make final selection.

Adhering to customer specifications and approved supplier lists, IPE qualifies and manages its supply base through the use of ISO 9001 registered supplier audit and performance management processes.

Western OEM companies continue to leverage IPE' extensive supply base as a “one stop shop” to source a variety of parts and materials required to manufacture their products. No longer is there a need for the OEM customer to qualify and manage multiple parts suppliers from around the world, just leave global supply chain management to IPE!

Here is a partial listing of the commodities that IPE has demonstrated its expertise in:

• Metals – extrusion, pressings
• Plastics – extrusion
• Raw Printed Circuit Boards
• Electronic components
• Carbon Fibe Products
