Supply Chain Overview
In common with all HansenGroup businesses, we are able to supply products and services from our unique integrated 3 stream supply chain model.
All partner suppliers are initially chosen for the quality of their products and/or services. They are then carefully vetted and assessed to ensure that they are suitable partners under the following criteria…
• strength of existing relationship
• technical capability and reputation
• design capability and innovation record
• size and market position
• management style
• financial status
The supply chain performance is continuously monitored and fed back to our partners, ensuring long-term quality objectives are achieved.
The choice of suppliers required for products or services will vary dependent on the specific needs of each project. Products and services that may need to be sourced include design, technical advice, testing, site installation plus physical materials fabrication. Often, products and services may need to be sourced from more than one of the streams, in a coordinated and precise way.
Being able to build a tailored supply model for each project, allows us to source virtually any product or service, and not to be constrained by capacity limitations.
Our Fabrication and Service Streams
1. Local Inhouse Supply
Many of our HansenGroup businesses have their own focused fabricating and service units that employ small teams, often with high skills and experience, to deliver one or more specialised products or services.
2. Group Inhouse Supply
As well as localised fabricating units, HansenGroup has also developed super-fabrication plants that can be used to supply high quality products to any of its businesses around Europe. These units offer technical centres and manufacturing economies of scale.
3. External Trusted/Licensed Supply
HansenGroup has developed strong relationships with excellent suppliers of products and services. These suppliers may be licensed by HansenGroup to manufacture its own products, or they may be trusted suppliers that will supply their own products and services. In some cases, HansenGroup have exclusive supply arrangements in some geographical markets. Individual HansenGroup businesses will have specially trained teams that will be able to specify and use the products correctly.
