Needs Assessment Program from Knight Electronics Lowers Costs for Manufacturers


Service designed to identify purchasing and warehouse savings

DALLAS (May 2, 2006) - Knight Electronics Inc., an ISO 9001:2000 certified supplier of AC and DC cooling fans and trays, power cords, OEM components and other electronic products, now offers a free needs assessment service to identify cost saving opportunities for purchasing and warehousing of electrical, electronic and electro-mechanical parts and sub-assemblies. Knight's assessment program includes an on-site meeting with a Knight representative to identify significant areas for reductions in purchasing and inventory carrying costs. The needs assessment service is another means of market differentiation for Knight's distribution and sales representative partners.

Knight has outlined its capabilities and needs assessment services in a new corporate brochure now available from the company. With 25 years of experience in global manufacturing, Knight is uniquely positioned to assess individual company needs. As a Technically Enabled Manufacturing Services Company (TEMS), the company's cost-saving services can potentially save manufacturers 10 percent or more on communication, travel, procurement, transportation and currency risk through Knight's integrated supply chain.

"Manufacturers everywhere are getting demands for lower pricing from their customers. If not directly from customers, then the competitors are applying pricing pressure," said Bob Knight, president of Knight Electronics. "The challenge manufacturers face today is offering broad-based cost-saving differentiation plans, not just low-priced components. At Knight Electronics, we have decades of international sourcing and engineering experience that results in lower cost, higher efficiency sourcing of components, assemblies and inventory services that free cash flow, providing more profits and opportunities for today's electronics OEMs."

The Knight needs assessment recommendations typically include multiple cost-saving measures. Just-in-time delivery systems can significantly reduce inventory costs. Lower-cost production facilities with proven performance records and/or Knight's experienced engineering staff can help decrease procurement and parts costs for both standard and custom components and sub-assemblies, regardless of project scope. And each of Knight's products and services is supported by an established worldwide sourcing network, which includes corporate warehouses and facilities in Dallas, Texas (corporate office and North American warehouse), China, England, Poland and elsewhere. The network is further supported by a world-class network of representation and distribution partners.
