Last month, MES Inc. was honored to host the first Annual Supplier Conference in Ningbo, China. Organized by our Chinese branch and with the participation of CEO Hiten Shah, MES Inc. hosted over 20 suppliers coming from different parts of the country representing different commodities and different manufacturing processes.
On the occasion of the event, MES Inc. launched a new Preferred Supplier Program where the suppliers are expected to maintain a certain level of quality, improve production lead times, deliver on time and participate in cost reduction initiatives. MES’ commitment in exchange is that it will source more projects from these preferred suppliers and reduce raw material and exchange rate risk.
Under the name of “Supplier – Quality Awards”, Hiten Shah recognized those suppliers who have grown with MES and who, by working with us and following our recommendations, have improved significantly. The award was designated in 3 categories: Quality, Price and Delivery and Service. One supplier was designated Supplier of the Year for outstanding metrics in all three criteria.
MES’ guiding principle is that we create win – win solutions for both our customers and suppliers. We understand that we are only as good as our suppliers and we have always invested in the relationships.
