We operate development centers in Plymouth, Michigan; Southern California (Irvine, Carson & LA); Silicon Valley (San Jose and Palo Alto); Vancouver, British Columbia; and Surrey, England; as well as a manufacturing facility in Normal, Illinois.

  • Coordinate and execute transactional movements of materials to optimize and reduce logistics costs (consolidation), meet SLAs (replen, transfer logic), and reduce global inventory costs
  • Drive operational excellence and best practices across the network aimed at reducing costs and improving service levels such as replenishment order generation, Bill of distribution
  • Collaborate with Service Field operations, Supply Chain Planning, Demand Planning, and other key partners to launch channel planning ensuring clarity around service level expectations, part allocation strategy, part availability, inventory refresh cycles, part consumption, and field performance
