Supply Chain and Sourcing

Supply chain management has become an integral part of The Atlas Group’s business culture. This department is innovative, globally active in sourcing and procurement of raw materials, and continually seeks good reliable suppliers for all products. The team works to build and maintain firm relationships with key suppliers to determine and negotiate contracts that optimize the total acquisition cost.

We understand the importance of supply chain sourcing and management to be a key success factor for our entire operations.  Our integrated development team works closely with our various engineering sectors, manufacturing, operations, logistics and the finance departments to identify, analyze and realize cost optimization opportunities.

Structural assemblies can require over 250 manufactured components and sub-assemblies, hundreds of pieces of hardware, electronics and other products to complete a deliverable to a customer. This important business factor utilizes our LEAN culture with VMI or VOI contracts. Our supply chain management team is capable of coordinating multiple complex tasks that provide creative solutions for our customers, while reducing administration overhead, shrinking total lead time and improving overall quality.

The Atlas Group optimizes the supply chain to increase cash flows for raw materials and spare parts inventory so that our customers receive positive value added service.

Customers get the right product, delivered to the right place, at the right time, and at the right price.
