  • Due to an explosive growth, material demand went through the roof. Current stock keeping capacity was not sufficient and existing suppliers were underachieving.


  • Existing suppliers’ achievements were analyzed and weighed against other possible international suppliers. A combination of new agreements and new suppliers ensured a more stable raw material flow.
  • Analysis was done on how much more stock keeping space was needed. Through a rethinking of already existing space, no extra location was needed.
  • Purson also actively participated in the material planning process, discerning key roadblocks to an efficient planning system. A new tool was suggested and the horizon of material supply was broadened through statistical means.
