Thanks to the resources and track record of the Paragon Electronics Group, Vigilant can provide its customers with the industry leading Total Component Management™ (TCM®) electronic component kitting services. Uniting our core skills of electronic component procurement, supply chain management, device preparation, inspection, component verification and electronic component kitting, our approach to component delivery is unique within the electronics industry.
No matter how complex your bill of materials, we act as a centralised hub for all your kitting requirements. By outsourcing your procurement, supply chain management and logistics to us, we will handle every aspect of the process completely. From checking part lifecycle and RoHS status, through managing long-lead-time devices and obsolescence issues, to packaging, labelling, custom documentation and presenting kits the way you require them. Paragon's TCM kitting services are ideal for products in the low-to-medium volume and medium-to-high complexity arena. Even small batch surface mount technology (SMT) based products are ideal for the paragon TCM service due to the innovative way we manage and deliver small quantities of reels.
Since the grey area costs that exist between component purchasing and production can mean that the real costs of your component acquisition can be up to 20% more than your total 'visible' component costs,, we will totally eliminate these costs from your operations to improve your profitability. Plus, when you partner with us, you'll also safeguard your business against unforeseen variables such as lead-time fluctuations and obsolescence.
Through our Paragon Total Component Management™ service, we deliver:
- Consolidated component purchasing, leveraging our group spend of over £20m
- Kanban, vendor managed inventory / line side store and vendor tail management
- Specialist electronics kitting services including device programming, cropping and lead forming, re-reeling of surface-mount components and delivery of reels in correct feeder order in custom-designed reel boxes for 'ship-to-line' in SMT assembly areas.
Complete kits of components delivered, 'production ready' to where they are needed, when they are needed .....sounds too good to be true?
