Outsourcing/Purchasing Agent for Raw Materials
Hartness International(Manufacturing Division)
Monitor and purchase incoming raw and stock material. Monitor all existing materials to ensure supplies are sufficient to build machinery. Document all incoming materials and stock new materials as they are delivered. Negotiate pricing with vendors to ensure the best price is received when ordering new supplies. Order new materials through MRP and track their progress through the ordering process. Identify materials that are not stocked by manufacturing due to low EAUs and outsource them to other vendors. Send out RFQ's and award orders to the best fit and priced vendor to ensure manufacturing meets critical due dates.
Renegotiated pricing with plastic vendors and was able to save the company $30,000.
Renegotiated stainless steel pricing and maintained current pricing even though the market pricing was increasing.
Created a database linking Hartness International ordering software and Excel to allow the company to run queries and identify inventory needs earlier. This allowed the company to be proactive in ordering so there was lower down time and improved on time delivery of parts from the manufacturing shop to assembly. Also allowed outside vendors to improve their on time deliveries of raw materials.
