  • Nord-Micro AG & Co OHG, Frankfurt, Germany
  • Appletree Consulting supported Nord-Micro at a supplier in the Southern California 'Inland Empire' area. The following comments on ACI's performance were received: -

    "In the ACI job description was tracking of all major overdue items, obtaining shipping schedules and presenting them on templates, providing a daily overview on the status of WIP treatments and participation on daily telecons between the supplier and Nord-Micro, affording rapid communication.

    In this time ACI improved the backlog situation significantly. ACI's constant engagement with the supplier, self-assertion and professionality helped to recover a lot of shippings on the Nord-Micro customer side.

    We thank ACI for their exceptional work and would recomend them for other projects."

  • Hexcel Structures, Kent, Washington, USA
  • Appletree Consulting worked closely with Appletree Management Services to assist Hexcel Structures, Kent WA at a supplier in the Los Angeles area. The following comments are on record: -

    "Appletree Management Services has provided oversight, problem resolution, and expediting services at a supplier with a difficult relationship and significant financial concerns. Their service has proven to be very helpful and cost effective.

    They understand supplier relationships, contractual terms, manufacturing processes, and quality assurance. By using their service I was able to avoid the travel costs and loss of production from having to place one of my buyers at the supplier full-time.

    I would not hesitate to use them again in a supplier oversight and expediting role, if the need arrives."
