New 55 Ton Absolute Haitian Mold Machine for DC Electronics

We are thrilled to introduce a new 55 ton Absolute Haitian Mold Machine. A crack team from AC Wilson did the installation and set up. This new machine is one of the largest of the 6 injection molding units we now have on the floor. The vertical clamp of this unit is ideal for cable assemblies, so it was the clear choice. This new addition to the plant gives a significant boost to our injection molding capacity.

The Tsunami’s Effect on Manufacturers Continues.

Japanese supply chain disruptions may last until the end of this year, according to Japan’s Ministry of Economics and Trade. While many manufactures are scrambling to find alternative suppliers, DC Electronics customers who rely heavily on Japanese parts suppliers are protected, thanks to the heads-up action of DC Director of Materials, Alice Cheung.

“The first thing we did after we heard the news was to run BOMs on all our customers to find out which ones were using Japanese suppliers,” Alice said. She did not rely exclusively on suppliers for information, but went directly to the factories to determine exactly what the supply situation was. She learned very quickly that order lead times were jumping from 12 to 22 weeks.

“The suppliers were saying one thing, but the factories had the real information. You just had to know where to find it,” she said.

Alice immediately contacted those customers who looked like they would be in trouble if they didn’t act fast. She helped strategize a safety stock system. In some cases, DC doubled up on its orders as insurance against short supply or delays, and they are now holding stock in reserve.

“When we need it, it’s there,” says VP of Operations, Ruben Macias, Jr. “If the situation improves and we don’t need it, we can work with customers to draw it down.” The current situation is very fluid. Alice and her team are checking the factory websites and requoting orders on a daily basis. She expects most of the factories to be up to full capacity before the end of the year.

When Customers Become “Close Friends.”

by Dave Cianciulli, President, DC Electronics

I was excited to find this article in Bloomberg. It perfectly describes the kind of relationships we at DC Electronics have been actively cultivating for several years now. In his piece, journalist Shruit Singh reports on Caterpillar’s cultural shift from “vendor master” to team player. He writes about Caterpillar’s effort to form extremely close and innovative working relationships with its suppliers in an attempt to cut costs and improve quality.

We know this story well. DC Electronics has embarked on the same journey with our customers. In the past two years we’ve made a serious investment to transform the way we work and think. We installed new tools that enable close collaboration and better communication. We challenged our standards and raised them. We worked to make our organization more transparent and most important, we actively worked to increase the level of trust between us and our customers. We share information and technology. We share our success and we share our failures.

Learning how to do business in a new way has not been easy, believe me. But I can honestly say that in my 22 year history with DC Electronics, business has never been so rewarding and exciting.
