We focus on reducing customer part costs by employing technology, experience, and our network. From monitoring metal prices, to optimizing logistics, our technology and procurement team is focused on cutting costs. In fact, our customers see 5% to 20% total cost reduction from using Chess Group as a supplier. These savings originate in
In a study we did on the total cost of ownership for our customers, and the real deratives of those costs, we found shutdowns to be the largest contributor to total costs. Saving pennies on procurement over 1000's of parts can be eliminated with just a few shutdowns a year costing millions.
We look to eliminate this without adding to your costs or impacting your ROA. We reduce your inventory on the foor, follow our quality process and procurement model, and stock parts with a few hours delivery to you all times. No lead times, not excess inventory, and processed controlled quality assurance. This is the Chess difference.
The truth is, managing C-items such as fasteners and machined parts is a hassle. They are the lowest value items, yet their number and variety cause the most problems and take the most time. We help our customers by giving them one point of contact for all their C-item procurement and quality concerns.
Chess Group maintains proprietary technology to handle and process a variety of parts and processes, 1000's of vendors, and terabytes of quality data and information. By ordering your parts through Chess, you are offloading $100,000s of dollars each year of management, documentation, and processing.
The most important thing to me is keeping the customer lines running. Many firms don't realize that the majority of actual part costs originate with quality issues, line shutdowns, and freight. We have built our entire process around minimizing these costs.Dutch Schultz Owner
Honestly, we are small firm, we need our customers. There are so many stories in our company about going the extra mile for customers. I know on multiple occasions our warehouse staff has driven through the night to port in order to get parts off the boat and bring directly to the customers by morning!Joshua Schultz Operations
