This century-old French SME has been able to adapt over time to the needs of its customers. It has gradually abandoned its foundry activity to develop equipment and materials for the transport and agricultural sector. It has now two departments:
- A first one for the transformation of trucks and the manufacture of flatbed trailers.
- A second one for the manufacture of log saws. These saws are sold on home improvement stores.
In a context of tension on the supply of accessories, the SME wishes to diversify its sourcing in terms of electric motors with a new partner. More specifically, it is ideally looking for a company that would be able to supply 2 types of electric motors
• a 230v single-phase motor 1.84 kw
• a 230v single-phase motor 2.2 kw
The total quantity would be around 150 - 200 motors per year. The sales order should increase in the following years if the partnership is successful.
An initial test will be carried out with a motor to ensure that it can withstand the constraints of use (sawdust, resistance to stress, etc.). Once this first test is successful, the motors will be ordered. The partner will ideally manage the delivery logistics.
The French SME wishes to sign a long-term supplier agreement.
