”Production is more resource-efficient now”
Through HANZA’s MIG analysis, Silva has drastically reduced its production costs.
The outdoor company Silva produce and sell compasses and head lamps for outdoor sport activities. When Silva wanted to make production more efficient and maintain profitability, they embarked on a collaboration with HANZA.
– It feels great to have HANZA as a partner! HANZA has guided us through the manufacturing process, as it’s not our core competency. Our new strategy is to focus on developing new products and open new customer markets, says Richard Jägrud, CEO at Silva.
Silva previously owned their own factory in Shenzhen, China, where they manufactured their products. It was this operation that HANZA was commissioned to evaluate. Could Silva lower their production costs by outsourcing production to an external party?
HANZA started the collaboration with a so-called MIG analysis, a process that pointed to possibilities of less tied-up capital, lowered costs and an increased flexibility. Silva then chose to let HANZA manage all manufacturing, which was transferred to HANZA’s manufacturing cluster in Suzhou, China.
– With the help of HANZA we can now produce with more resource-efficiency, with minimal waste and few transports. It also makes possible a production that lives up to high standards in terms of sustainability, says Richard Jägrud.
