Security of short distances
In the last two years, the Covid 19 pandemic and currently the strong political changes have once again clearly shown many companies the dependencies their mostly international supply chains create. As a result, many supply chains are being re-evaluated and are sometimes broader or sometimes more regional. As a consequence of the current supply bottlenecks and the risk assessment of future projects, the security of the supply chain is increasingly being taken into account in addition to economic efficiency when selecting suppliers.
Local as a contribution to sustainable procurement
In addition to minimising risks, sourcing in local markets promotes the sustainability of products – a condition that legislators and consumers are increasingly demanding. Against this backdrop, greater transparency of the supply chains or the shortening of transport routes through purchasing in geographically closer markets are definitely target-oriented and can be seen as a competitive factor that is gaining in importance.
Fast and with a crisis-proof supply chain
IMPETUS customers receive secured premium prototypes and small series quickly and with the security of short distances. “In the case of tools for the production of series components, we assess the current market situation and the desired availability together with our customers.” Here, in addition to regional procurement, a mix of global, European and local procurement markets can be the right choice for a crisis-proof supply chain.
Premium prototypes and small batches of steel moulds
IMPETUS Plastics supplies premium prototypes and small series made of steel tools quickly and from original material. This requires short distances and regional supply chains without unnecessary complexity. IMPETUS designs and simulates the injection moulded components, lays out the associated prototype tools and takes care of tool procurement for your customers. Injection moulding machines are available in our technical centre, which are not permanently integrated into ongoing production processes and are therefore available for customer projects – even at short notice.
Procurement of series moulds
Basing the entire supply chain for procurement and production only on local markets and abandoning intact cooperations that have often grown over many years, especially against the backdrop of high cost pressure and a competitive market environment, is also not very expedient. This also applies to the procurement of injection moulds. Together with its customers, IMPETUS critically examines the respective situation and evaluates the current risks as well as possible measures to secure the ability to deliver, which result from product requirements and current availabilities.
