The Extron Approach
The Old Supply Chain Model is Broken
Asia/China Centric Supply Chains are Non-Resilient:
If you are building most of your high-value electronics or medical device overseas, you are likely subject to supply chain interruptions caused by geopolitical or economic issues, transportation issues, or natural disasters. Critical IP is often exposed to overseas theft. It's slower to respond to changes in demand, and it's harder to learn and pivot when product defects are discovered.
Last Mile Manufacturing®
Extron's unique Last Mile Manufacturing® approach realigns your supply chain so that the final assembly and testing of key components occurs closer to your customer. This minimizes the potential for supply interruptions, protects critical IP, and gives you the flexibility to grow and adapt faster.
