Material shortages inflate cable assembly lead times

If you see surprisingly long quoted lead times for your cable assembly, there’s likely an underlying cause: component supply chain issues. Projects sometimes wait on a single part with low inventories and long lead times.

We identify feasible alternate materials when low-stock components threaten delivery schedules. And our Cable Tracker software offers full visibility into the component supply chain to keep you ahead of supply chain pinches.

A true partnership makes your job easier

If you send your cable project overseas, you’re likely signing up for extra vendor management in exchange for lower per-unit costs. Reworking mistakes. Waiting days on responses to design or manufacturing questions.

Where others add hidden cost, we add value. You can consolidate your supply chain around our flexibility. We enter inventory agreements to reduce cost and supply chain risk. You’ll hear from us almost immediately if you reach out.
