Vehicle manufacturers worldwide are expected to see record high sales in the upcoming years – topping 18 million units in 2017 and 2018 according to IHS. This increased demand for the production of quality passenger automobiles and motorcycles, public transport vehicles and heavy-duty shipping and freight vehicles is not without its challenges. Whether you are an OEM, Tier 1 or Tier 2 supplier, one of the most time consuming tasks your organization experiences involves managing the inventory of fasteners and other class “C” products. In addition to the many vendors needed for sourcing weld studs, specialty and stock fasteners and various stamping products, additional companies are utilized for secondary processing, patching, kitting and other services alike.
