Compakto is a machinery design and build company based in Nelson, New Zealand. Their precision machines are used in the woodworking industry and they have customers all over the world.
In a sourcing squeeze
Compakto has been importing components and machines from China for years, but it hasn’t always been smooth sailing. Recently, a spate of faulty shipments, communication breakdowns, and unreliable lead times forced Compakto to look at reforming the sourcing side of their supply chain.
As with most of our clients at Epic, Compakto’s key frustration stemmed from having unreliable suppliers. They reached out to us with a specific request; to find a top-quality bearing supplier.
Overall the project with Compakto was a success and we really enjoyed working with such a professional outfit.
Compakto has built a reputation worldwide for producing precision woodworking machinery that meets the highest standard. Reliability is key to their mission, and as such they need suppliers they can trust to deliver similarly high-quality components.
Helping the team at Compakto find such a supplier is what we thrive on at Epic. We only work with the best suppliers in China, and pairing them with kiwi businesses is what we do best.
Another happy client.
