As car manufacturing begins to come out from under the pandemic shroud, it’s facing a vastly different business dynamic. The industry experienced devastating supply chain disruptions across the globe and the effects continue into 2023.
Automotive component specs are hard-won and we know that supply chain disruptions can cause critical and costly stoppages in the manufacturing process.
You need to determine which suppliers will be with you for the long haul that will afford you more flexibility when times get tough. You want suppliers that demonstrate a commitment to the industry with a longer-term view. Choose partners that have strong roots and are committed to consistent quality, continuous improvement, and superior product performance. Buying American made materials will improve your odds when you are manufacturing in the United States.
