Brainport Industries provides a fertile ground and a solid structure for collaborative projects whether they are related to technology, market or people. It’s an environment that provides for a continuing flow of knowledge workers and experts and enables suppliers to increase their output and steadily grow into market leaders.
This shift is driving suppliers to push their own boundaries in terms of feasibility and responsibility, and to extend their reach across international borders in order to tap into new, foreign markets.
OEMs competing on the international market for high-mix, low-volume, high-complexity machines have been outsourcing the manufacturing of sub-assemblies and larger non-core submodules to strategic suppliers for quite some time and are now increasingly outsourcing the design and development of the equipment they manufacture as well. What they’re doing in fact, is giving suppliers full responsibility for these modules, from design through to manufacturing.
OEMs who use this chain optimally will be able to serve their customers better. Brainport Industries is the world’s leading open supply chain for High Tech companies, and our ambition is to further strengthen and develop it.
