Full kitting service provides a single supplier solution for a full BOM

31-07-2023 | Agile Electronics | Industrial

Agile Electronics can offer customers a full electronic component kitting service. The company provides customers with a single supplier solution enabling their complete BOM to be loaded into its system as a single line item. This has the advantage of the entire kit being billed with a single invoice to pay and just one delivery charge. It removes the need for a buyer to negotiate with multiple suppliers, agree on numerous contacts, and pay multiple invoices and shipping charges.

The company's professional kitting service uses bespoke kitting software and draws on its extensive knowledge of electronic product assembly. Attrition ensures production runs are completed in full the first time.

Their in-house, Swiss-built re-reeling machine provides tapes for various SMT footprints with sufficient lead, further reducing attrition costs. Labels with customer PCB locations are provided as standard, including the company's part number, quantity per board, overall quantity, description, and the manufacturer's part number. This, along with a Kit Profile included in the box, ensures that a customer's kit is delivered production-ready for manufacture.

Sarah Eddowes, director of Agile Electronics, says, "As a leading UK supplier of electronic components, we understand the challenges that come with keeping up with the fast pace of technological development. Using our decades of experience in the electronics industry, we can source components of all kinds and are able to keep customer projects running on time and to budget. Buying a full kit from a single supplier avoids hidden transaction costs, which are common when dealing with multiple suppliers. Just one phone call or email to Agile to place an order is the easy way to kit any production run."

The company services various industries, such as industrial, transport and communications, and can provide complete sub-assembly solutions enabling customers to stay focused on their core business aims. It works with its customers to provide a distribution service addressing problems or single-item vendors. It can also consolidate suppliers to reduce inventory, streamline invoicing and order procurement, reduce transactions and bottom-line costs, and improve customers' end profits.

The company has wide-ranging knowledge of the electronics industry, allowing them to source any manufactured part and keep customer projects running on time and within budget. Their bespoke kitting software and extensive knowledge of assembly techniques allow attrition to be factored into projects, ensuring customer production runs are completed in full the first time.
