“Blame it on the Supply Chain.” We hear this excuse at the grocery store, auto dealerships, and almost everywhere we shop. APEX Spring & Stamping works daily to ensure our customers have their products in hand despite global supply chain issues. Supply chains are critical revenue lifelines that enable companies to make, sell, and move their products. For an organization to thrive it must be flexible and quickly respond to changes and disruptions in supply schedules and shortages. The supply chain continues to globalize and create a domino effect for manufacturers and suppliers everywhere. Floods in Japan, earthquakes in Germany, and global pandemics all have one thing in common: the ability to disrupt the supply chain. The outsourcing of parts comes with both benefits and risks. Here at APEX, we work hard each day to help our customers avoid the risks that outsourcing presents.
