Collaboration in today’s ever-evolving world requires transparency and trust. No more are the days where companies simply request quotes from suppliers without developing a strategic relationship. The global, complex ecosystem in which we now operate necessitates relationships that are more strategic in nature, and companies that embrace this approach to collaboration will be in the best position to succeed and increase competitiveness in the coming years.
The time is now for manufacturers to prioritize deep collaboration with their suppliers and customers to safeguard business continuity, realize sustainability commitments, and improve the customer experience. In this article, Michael Hartung, President of Agility Solutions at Flex, explores the evolving role of manufacturing partnerships, highlighting the need for tighter, more integrated ecosystems with close-knit relationships between suppliers and manufacturers. He shares how Flex is tapping into our robust supply chain ecosystem to help our customers exceed their end-customers’ expectations and how we are working with our suppliers to create more resiliency, accelerate innovation, and deliver a superior customer experience, while achieving sustainability goals.
