Off-road vehicles and agricultural equipment must be well-manufactured to endure rugged, uneven terrains and heavy workloads. Top-quality materials and components, including precision cable assemblies, are required for long-term durability.
As a leading provider of standard and custom cable assemblies, the off road / agriculture market has consistently trusted CMA for top-grade materials and solutions. A U.S.-based manufacturer for off-road/agriculture seating had a unique situation that required CMA’s expertise for inventory management and delivery of a seating control cable.
The manufacturer for off-road/agriculture seating was extending their global footprint by entering the Asian markets. They opened manufacturing locations in China while keeping their U.S.-based team of designers and product developers in the states.
The globally-expanding company sought a cable assembly partner who could easily supply to their regional locations both in the U.S. and China. They wanted to minimize logistic complications for product delivery while also identifying a local partner for their U.S.-based engineering team. CMA’s extensive capabilities and program management for cable assemblies was able to serve the customer’s pull-pull cable needs. We provided light duty control cables for their seating control application while offering a robust solution for managing their world-wide supply chain.
Using our quality assurance and global sourcing capabilities, CMA worked with our Asian partner to develop a supply program domestically and abroad. Each location manufactures the seating control cable to the exact specifications required by the customer. Since the high-quality products are manufactured both in the U.S. and by our Asian partner, the customer can easily access their necessary supplies from the partner nearest to their multi-location facilities.
The program offers superior service and supply chain risk mitigation by guaranteeing a steady stream of products, since the customer can receive supplies from either plant. We surpassed their supply expectations while also providing real-time, local engineering support for the customer’s U.S.-based design and development team. CMA overcame each of the customer’s logistical hurdles and provided consistent, high-quality products for all of their manufacturing locations.
