Where the company wants to get
Current EMS industry forecasts 5-year CAGR growth to 21%. The industry
statistics show that 83% of OEMs utilize CMs and 85% expect increased
reliance. Many OEMs try to concentrate on their core competencies
such as sales, marketing, and R&D, while dedicated manufacturing
is no longer considered a core competency. With outsourcing popularity,
there are not so many strong reasons to produce products internally.
Among outsourcing needs of OEMs, we can find, besides reduction
of cost of goods sold and improved return on assets, improved performance
(time to market, supply chain), quality improvement, flexibility,
business risk management, geographic reach, low-cost region search,
vertical integration, long-term relationship.
AT Compus provides CM services to both OEM and EMS customers.
Our facilities enable us to offer both high-mix/low-volume, high
value-add services, and low-mix/high volume manufacturing.
AT Compus can set up a manufacturing cell at its facilities specific
to a particular customer. Our personnel will be trained on the customer's
assembly, testing and other procedures. Local sourcing can be developed,
thus reducing costs (e.g. one of the worldwide largest computer
chassis producers is based just 30 km away from our facilities).
There is a strong engineering reputation and expertise in the Czech
Republic for sheet metal, stamping and other technologies. Reducing
costs can continue through local process re-design. For the US and
Western European customers, all that leads to their increased competiveness.
For US customers, local partner can provide large cost reductions
and shortened lead times in Europe.
OEMs can enjoy our support in various product life stages: during
start-up phases, at full production (order fulfillment), and even
at obsolescence (post-sale services).
