Supply Chain

From initial design through finished, packaged, and sterilized product, SMC’s team of dedicated supply chain experts will manage all aspects of the supply chain.

At SMC, supply chain management begins as a partnership. We work with you to understand your expectations and ensure they align with each link of the supply chain to provide the shortest lead-time, to reduce risk, and to establish continuity across the entire process. This assures all needed resources go toward meeting the product and the product timeline.

With an in-house global supply team, we align ourselves with significant suppliers who have a global footprint. Our strategic sourcing team reviews the financial integrity, manufacturing capabilities, and quality systems of our suppliers before they are considered as a viable supplier.

Our team of engineers and supply chain experts continuously monitor supplier metrics to ensure the supply chain is efficient, competitive, on-time, and delivers high quality and value. Our controlled process verifies that we receive a uniform product time and time again to meet required standards.
