Impacts of Nearshore Manufacturing on Businesses

08.02.21 09:10 AM

    Distributed Manufacturing enables Localized Production, or production close to the point of need which has a major impact on logistics, reducing cost and lead times. 

    Furthermore, Just In Time or On-Demand Manufacturing enables companies to decrease the need for stock, slashing transportation and storage costs, as well as having a positive impact on the landed cost of goods. We apply a “no-waste” approach to every step in our process and our solution drives the production and delivery of products with accurate, precise and lean “what-when-where” solution.
