Rebound Electronics, the original hybrid distributor of electronic components, has taken hybrid distribution to the next level - opening an office in New York, USA, which will work in harmony with existing procurement offices in Europe and Asia to offer Rebound’s customer base a truly global, 24/7 supply chain model.
Rebound has already established a solid distribution and supply chain network with numerous offices in Europe and Asia. However, Rebound has identified the USA as a major potential source of components for the supply chain and, by establishing this corporate footprint in the USA, Rebound can increase its procurement channels globally.
The new USA office will create many benefits and opportunities for the Rebound Group and its customers. By closing the global gap, Rebound will be able to streamline and enhance procurement strategies, harmonising the entire global supply chain across the Group. This streamlined approach will mean that customers will benefit from a truly global 24/7-procurement service.
The staff in the USA office have significant experience in developing global sourcing and supplier relationship management strategies, leading global teams, and establishing commercial agreements to deliver competitive advantages. This experience, plus their local knowledge of the USA supply chain, will enhance the global service that Rebound already provides.
Simon Thake, Rebound Group CEO, commenting on the opening of the USA office, said: “We're very much looking forward to our USA office helping to drive the business forward, both in the USA and globally. With their background and expertise in supply chain, combined with the successful procurement models that Rebound already has in place, I believe we can pool all our resources and work as a team to identify how to become even more efficient globally”.
Grant Fairbairn, Global Commodities Manager at Rebound added, “At Rebound we focus on continuous improvement in all areas. The supply chain is constantly evolving and changing, and we need to stay abreast of this. The USA team will help to optimise the Group’s resources by reviewing our processes and business models, and identifying areas where we can optimise our resources and enhance our global business processes”.
Rebound’s model of hybrid distribution will benefit immensely from the increased procurement opportunities in the USA. Hybrid distribution is aimed at giving buyers of electronic components the highest quality product at the best price available worldwide, while simultaneously offering continuity of supply, and Rebound’s improved knowledge and experience within the USA means that they will lead the way in offering true 24/7 component sourcing.
