"PCML have been able to provide a network of capability throughout their business by engaging all disciplines to review the needs of FFEI Ltd product demands and technical & logistical solutions across a wide range of topics.... PCML have been able to reach far into our business and impact in key areas of product design for manufacture and inventory management.

Both FFEI Limited and PCML look at future demands and review the flexibility required from both parties to steer the supplier capacity in the right direction at the right time. Agreed stockholding and PCML controlled MRP management ensures that inventory control is managed by way of smart stock in, rather than taking stock out when looking at the overall inventory held on both sites."
