Just-in-time and demand-pull stocking programs are commonplace in electronic and electro-mechanical distribution these days. But M-Wave sets itself apart in a number of ways. First, it holds custom electro-mechanical and electronic product inventory for customers until they demand it or need replenishment. Distributors are normally dealing with active or passive standardized components that can be low cost and consignable but rarely do they venture into low-volume, high-mix, high-value custom products as M-Wave does.
This is the case when customers wish to support lean, kanban binning, consignment, demand-pull or in-plant storehouse programs that brokers and intermediaries do not offer. Most of these companies do not take credit risks or offer extended terms that is the crux of credit-logistics stocking programs. If a credit-worthy customer wishes to be supplied on a “flow-controlled” basis, typical in demand-based supply and spend. We are that partner that improves a customer’s balance sheet without need for tapping inventory credit lines.
