ONE SUPPLIER TO MEET ALL INDUSTRIAL LABEL NEEDS

Supplier consolidation lowers costs and boosts productivity

Our Challenge

A global energy management company was working with more than 125 label suppliers across its North American operations. As part of a corporate-wide vendor consolidation effort, the North American commodity manager was tasked with consolidating all label needs – including custom printed products (CPP), thermal-transfer printed products (TTP), ribbons and printers – among just 2 or 3 suppliers. With thousands of parts and PPAPs across 26 plants, it was a daunting challenge to say the least.

Our Solution

Working at the corporate level and with individual locations, IDENTCO collected samples and conducted a competitive advantage assessment to identify opportunities for savings and consolidation. IDENTCO was awarded a Master Supply Agreement thanks in large part to our singular focus on industrial labels and a global footprint that aligns with the customer’s North American presence. With guaranteed consistency of operations between our facilities in the U.S. and Mexico and a range of technologies – including flexographic, digital and screenprinting – we are able to accommodate a wide variety of label types and applications. The agreement mandates a 5% reduction in product costs. Thus far, IDENTCO has delivered savings of 8-10%. At one location, IDENTCO became sole supplier for labels that had previously come from five different sources, resulting in savings of $14,000. A year into the agreement, IDENTCO has converted 12 facilities and replaced 25 legacy suppliers, improving productivity and reducing the administrative burden of managing multiple vendors.
