Industrial Manufacturing Global Supply Chain Benchmarking & Supplier Identification


Our client was operating in the industrial manufacturing space and was in need of a broader and global supplier base due to its increasing growth rate to remain cost-competitive.


The objective was to evaluate the client’s major competitors’ supply chain strategy and identify relevant suppliers across a selection of categories.

Our Work

10EQS benchmarked the client with three main competitors, considering their manufacturing presence, product management strategy, procurement organization, and global strategy. 10EQS assessed the core procurement markets and top 10 suppliers in various product groups. 10EQS then assessed the end-to-end supply chain structure and value-adding steps from material procurement through manufacturing and assembly to warehousing.
