Make India Happen: Sourcing from India

A few compelling facts about manufacturing in India:

Developing a successful supply chain with India requires knowledge of Indian manufacturing, how business is conducted there, and knowing where and how to find suppliers with proven capabilities. Schedule a Consult

Our Process- and Data-Driven Approach

  1. Understand your need: A one-on-one sit down with the client to understand ‘Why India?’ What parts/components and/or engineering services are being considered for outsourcing? What are the commodity areas and manufacturing process capabilities of relevance and interest?
  2. Determine the Fit: A review of the client’s product portfolio and part/component requirements. Visthar helps select the right sourcing package to get started, based on commodity and complexity. Educating the client on what works in India and what doesn’t is key to success.
  3. Find the Right Supplier: Every customer demands specific attributes of a supplier. Visthar helps Identify, Qualify, Select, and Manage the best-suited supplier for each client. Criteria used to evaluate and select suppliers include Quality, Cost, Delivery, and intangibles such as supplier's international business experience and company culture.
  4. Deploy in India: Visthar's on-going supplier management activities — from RFQ to Production — include oversight of Sample Development, PPAP Approval, and Pre-production outputs. On-the-ground supplier audits are conducted as required, and regular monitoring and reporting to US customers is a part of Visthar's quality process. Frequent interaction between Indian suppliers and US customers’ Engineering, Quality and Sourcing teams is a natural outcome of this approach.
  5. Deliver in the US: In collaboration with the client's strategic sourcing, purchasing and quality personnel, Visthar continuously tracks supplier performance. Deliverables include quality monitoring (Root Cause Analysis, CAPA reporting, Project Management, etc.) supported by timely communications and relevant reports. Visthar also offers US-based logistics and warehousing support to its customers, as required.

We don’t just supply parts/components, we collaborate on best-fit solutions.
