As we look towards entering the third year of the COVID-19 pandemic that initially began in March of 2020, many companies the world over are still facing challenges and hurdles to their daily operations in the form of travel restrictions, as well as stricter oversight on their manufacturing processes and supply chain management. These challenges are only compounded by the numerous factors that routinely impact multinational companies, especially those headquartered in the U.S. with overseas teams and operations located on the opposite end of the globe.
Thankfully, one company, D-Terra Solutions (D-Terra), possesses a unique strategic advantage when it comes to helping U.S. manufacturing companies navigate the environments of product development, manufacturing, and supply chain operations in Asia. During a time when many companies are facing travel restrictions, as well as manufacturing and supply chain oversights due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, D-Terra remains well-positioned to operate as an extension to their U.S. clients’ product and supply chain teams.
From manufacturing start-up, steady-state production, and ongoing quality control and logistics support, D-Terra helps their customers greatly reduce (or even outright eliminate) their travel expenses and on-the-ground support costs in order to better manage their offshore supplier activity. These initiatives have remained a crucial aspect of D-Terra’s business for years even prior to the pandemic, but since early 2020, have helped the company and its clients navigate what have arguably become the most tumultuous times for business in recent memory.
“For decades, our organization has helped our client companies launch new products while mitigating risk and maintaining solid continuity within their supply chains,” says Mike Billman, D-Terra’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With the COVID-19 pandemic still ongoing, our team at D-Terra has found that many U.S. companies are reaching out more than ever to tap into our product development, manufacturing, quality assurance, and supply chain expertise.”
Adding credence to Billman’s point, D-Terra’s team of experts located in Asia has (and continues to) actively manage the best and safest launch process for several new product introductions for one of the company’s multi-billion clients located in the U.S. As Billman explains, this has been in no small part due to D-Terra’s manufacturing consulting and contract manufacturing services, which include Engineering Support, Conducting Supplier Audits, and providing Production Approval (PPAP) and Safe Launch Services.
“Additionally,” Billman continues, “our team offers Process Audits, Quality Engineering Support, and Ongoing Product Inspections to help our clients achieve their business needs, regardless of where in the world they or their teams are located. Recently, we have witnessed additional customers engaging with D-Terra and our team in Asia for help identifying and sourcing Alternative Suppliers, or to help them mitigate supply chain risk, and even reduce their costs wherever and whenever applicable.”
