Supply Chain Localisation

An important consideration when establishing a new production facility in the region is the need to develop a local supply base in order to ensure high supply chain responsiveness, low inventory levels and minimal logistics costs.  

One of Alpha’s key services for incoming investors is interim procurement management during the months prior to production launch. 

An Alpha procurement manager will usually assist the client purchasing department to execute a “prepurchasing” project, identifying new suppliers in the region and initiating contract negotiations.   

Alpha will identify high-quality suppliers in the Czech Republic and neighbouring countries which are often able to provide 10-20% savings on existing product prices, while providing high levels of customer service. 

By the time production starts in the new plant, clients are in a position to switch to local suppliers in key product categories with substantial projected savings.
