The main reason for opening up our HUB in the US was the opportunity raised by of one of our Key customers Thermo Fisher (formerly FEI company) to support their US facility the same way like we are supporting their manufacturing sites in the Netherlands and Czech republic.
Thermo Fisher (formerly FEI company) and MAG45 have a strong partnership for many years. MAG45 is helping them with Supply Chain improvement strategies like supplier consolidation for their BOM Tail, VMI on the production floor, kitting and engineering support.
Cees Sluys, VP Supply Chain Thermo Fisher (formerly FEI company)
“MAG45 helped us to establish optimized supply base management on a global basis for our tail suppliers. For us it was important, in the partnership with MAG45, the willingness to follow our footprint in the US and invest in our cooperation. The consolidation of the large number of Suppliers by MAG45 on a global basis gives us the opportunity to focus on our core suppliers. The support MAG45 provides with their resident engineers is a real enabler for further growth and is a positive differentiator. For 2017 we will work on more joint opportunities as we have further expanded our footprint in the US and Europe."
