A leader bicycle component manufacturer needed to reduce its production lead time in order to improve the supply of its product to the North American consumer base. Component manufacturing in Asia involved extensive transit times and expedited freight fees.


Production at Olympic Precision Machining in Central America offered a reduced cost alternative to Asian manufacturing at a closer location to the product’s end market. Close coordination of OPM production scheduling with customer’s sales forecasts reduced the product’s lead time. Making use of a well established supplier base for post-machining special services within 30 miles of OPM’s facility additionally reduced transit times.


The overall delivery of finished goods to North American market was successfully improved by over one week. From small to large volume lots, complete parts were delivered to customers within three weeks after receipt of order.
