Why Should I Hire a Company Like Macrotech?
Macrotech Marketing Associates, Inc. (MMA) is a global manufacturing solutions provider of OEM commodities for the medical, electronics, computer and telecommunications industries. Additionally, we are an industry leader in specialty cable assemblies and wire harnesses. For 38 years, we have helped US companies reduce manufacturing costs by giving them the virtual benefits of having their own offshore manufacturing site without the expense of establishing a presence there.
MMA is a unique blend of local sales, design, engineering, customer service, and hands-on oversight of manufacturing, quality control, logistics, and IP protection. When it comes to global manufacturing, partnering with MMA offers you significant benefits over going it alone. When we ask our customers why they have chosen to work with us, they give 5 main reasons.
1. Purchasing Clout
MMA’s customers benefit from single-channel purchasing and collective buying power. We are able to combine and channel the business of many customers to a few vertically-integrated supporting factories. Because of this, we have clout with factories that individual companies don’t.
This offers a smaller company the ability to punch above their weight, competing with larger competitors by offshoring. They don’t need expertise in foreign markets, on-site technical support, customs agents, or an education in international logistics. We do all of this for them. Essentially, our customers enjoy the benefit of having an International Purchasing Office (IPO) without establishing an international presence.
In addition, our clout allows us to provide scheduling and expediting priority at our factories, giving customers more reliable ETAs to greatly reduce expediting costs.
2. Great Financing Options
We provide capital for the cash flow benefit of our customers and supporting factories. In doing so, we offer financing on both ends: The factory is paid when product is shipped, and U.S. customers benefit from the 60-day financing they have become accustomed to.
In addition, our supply chain utilizes long-term futures contracts to hedge against rising materials costs. This allows us to maintain more consistent costs for many necessary commodities. Copper is a good example of this. The reactionary nature of copper pricing makes it a risky commodity, but using futures allows us to hedge against shifting prices. This reduces the risk for our customers and provides significant financial stability for them.
Our experienced team removes global sourcing obstacles, enabling effective manufacturing through our extensive supply chain. We reduce factory unit costs significantly through purchasing and consignment of cost-driving materials. In addition, we work to find creative ways to cut costs throughout the supply chain.
Working with MMA gives our customers more options than they would have on their own. They are not limited by their lack of a global organization. We open the borders to business, making it easy for North American customers to manufacture in low-cost regions.
4. Sales, Technical and Customer Service Support
With many customers in a single channel, we are able to minimize factory overhead by handling support tasks for our clients. We offer competitive pricing, priority scheduling and expediting, short lead times, 100% quality inspection, and on-site technical and sales support.
Our customers benefit from direct access to multi-lingual support personnel in North America and Asia. Our US offices are in Los Gatos, CA (HQ), Minneapolis, MN, and South Bend, IN. In addition, we have direct factory supervision conducted by bilingual Engineering and Project Management personnel at several offices throughout the APAC region.
Above all, we are known for our customized, client-oriented service offerings. In other words, we are not a “one-size-fits-all” company. Our support of each customer is unique to their needs. This flexibility is what helps us offer the best support in the industry.
5. The Intangibles
