Supply Chain Management

Trust Beyond Manufacturing™

Sypris’ Supply Chain integrates all of the business processes required to satisfy customer needs. Our supply chain understands and coordinates purchasing, production planning, and logistics across the multiple organizations involved in designing, sourcing, producing, and delivering products and services. Our agile and customer focused team, design processes to meet unique customer needs; plan for relevant materials requirements, and equipment; develop and implement sourcing strategies; and build strategic relationships with supply chain partners.

Supply Chain Lean Environment

Traditional materials management doesn’t support responsiveness needed in our Lean environment. Sypris partners with the top franchised distributors in the market and holds long sourcing relationships with most semiconductor manufacturers. Multiple vendors have offices in-house and manage an efficient Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) program providing value to our customers through demand agility. Our internal, independent quoting team utilizes QuoteWin, which provides intelligent quote management and an RFQ processing solution. When responding to RFQs, Sypris utilizes a central costing database, allowing for quick decision on best source for requirements.
