Bundled Savings

Supply chain management leads to bundled savings

Cambium Network, a leading global provider of wireless broadband solutions, needed a manufacturing partner to provide plastic parts for their Wireless connectivity device. MME group manufactured the parts, and provided the value-added benefit of utilizing vertically integrated cost-saving solutions.

MME group provided a total solution for their customer’s parts project. The Company’s technical expertise in regular plastics, molding and DFMA put them in the position to provide the best solutions up front.

MME group negotiated lower prices to purchase coating and raw materials. They bought materials in bulk and coordinated ordering efforts to reduce cost.  They also introduced a custom designed shipping box that came in at an overall lower cost.

The part was manufactured, shielded, assembled and shipped from the MME group facilities in St. Paul, Minn. Supply chain management handled by experienced MME team members contributed to cost reduction.

Turnkey assembly and shipping solutions decreased delivery time. The Company assembled MME group molded parts to the shield, applied logos to the product, and handled all international shipment requests.

MME group’s end-to-end manufacturing solutions turned a routine request to manufacture parts into a supply chain management success story.
