Sourcing

Kitron’s sourcing experts are located in Norway, Sweden, Lithuania and China, enabling us to manage our global network of suppliers and ensure an optimal flow of components and materials to our manufacturing centres.

 

Kitron’s logistic team ensures the safe transport of products to our customers, or all the way to the end customer if desired.

 

Kitron believes that its sourcing and logistics capabilities and expertise provide a significant competitive advantage in terms of lower material costs, better quality and a seamless supply chain for our customers.

 

Reduction of life time cost
By helping our customers choose components with good availability, right quality and at the best price, we help reduce the life-time cost of our customers’ products. Kitron’s sourcing group continually sets aggressive targets to further reduce the cost of components and materials. To achieve this we will increase our sourcing activities in China, while continuing to benchmark and develop suppliers in general and endeavouring to benefit from major suppliers’ market imperfections that could lead to better terms and conditions for our customers.

 

Value-added sourcing services
In additon to the core delivery Kitron offers value-added sourcing services through our Chinese operations. This is done in order to assist customers to improve their competitive position through the reduction of material costs.
