Consistently delivering high-quality products at a low landed cost requires a level of supply chain sophistication beyond the reach of many contract manufacturers. Hearthside has invested heavily in the supply chain tailored to the needs of our customers. All three flows of commerce (goods, information, and currency) are streamlined for efficiency and for reliably producing the right products in the right places at the right times.
Visibility and Transparency: By tightly integrating our supply chain with the supply chains of our customers, we provide a level of visibility and transparency that makes Hearthside a seamless extension of our customers’ own networks.
Powered by SAP: Almost all of the world’s largest and best run manufacturing organizations run on SAP, however it is quite rare to see a contract manufacturer invest in SAP. Hearthside’s entire manufacturing network is powered by SAP. This represents a huge investment in the future, and in our ability to deliver maximum value for our customers.
Hearthside Performance Systems: Every aspect of our supply chain is based upon best practices developed within HPS – Hearthside Performance Systems. HPS is our own, custom developed, continuous improvement program. It is data-driven and enables us to monitor every aspect of our supply chain, continually tuning it for optimum efficiency, performance, and results.
Our supply chain is just one more way Hearthside creates new value for our customers.
