‘Best in Class Material Solutions’
30 Years of Full-Service Electronics Contract Manufacturing Excellence
At UEI we understand that the majority of a product’s cost and lead time are tied up in the raw materials used to produce that product. We have three decades of procurement experience executing in a short lead time oversupplied market, as well as in a scarcity or allocation market – which we are now in!
Universal Electronics procures over 18,000 different part numbers from over 300 global suppliers. We have real-time processes with many world-class vendors that handle communication of demand, requests for quotes, and issuance of purchase orders. These processes allow for flexibility while providing reduced lead times and improved total costs.
We excel in supply chain transition management and offer many solutions to minimize any lead time or financial impact to moving your supply chain to UEI. We provide support and leadership of the supply chain through all of a product’s phases:
- During NPI or proto phase we offer quick lead time, minimal excess, and help with proof of concept.
- In pilot phase we utilize production-ready parts, engage suppliers on supply chain models, and negotiate contracts.
- Production phase is about execution, flexibility, lead time and cost reduction.
- During end-of-life phase we minimize excess, provide smooth product transition, work alternate parts and manage lifetime buys.
