Lower Raw Material Pricing
Outsourcing with BCS allows customers the opportunity to take advantage of larger order quantities, transloading, or the procurement of concentrates. Ship us the material to be processed into the concentration, package, or volume your plant prefers and enjoy the cost savings of a larger quantity purchase, along with the convenience of receiving the material in the manner of your choosing. BCS can work with you for the procurement of alternative raw materials and in handling imported chemicals while assuring quality and safety. If several of your sites are handling the same raw material, BCS can act as a chemical hub for distribution.
Utilize repackaging services for super-sacks into smaller containers or bulk materials into bins or drums for easier handling or resale. Private labeling and regulatory assistance is available.
Low-cost, highly-efficient systems keep service fees below customer internal costs. Customers avoid personnel costs and capital investment through outsourcing. BCS acts as an extension of customer manufacturing capacity and is dedicated to being the low cost industry service provider. Our sites are ISO certified to provide confidence in our quality systems and we are dedicated to the safe handling of customer products.
Products and containers can be easily changed providing the ability to receive and ship materials in the desired package sizes and containers. If necessary, BCS is prepared to make plant modifications, dedicate capital for an appropriate project, or assist with new product introductions. We want to work as an integral part of your procurement, manufacturing, and distribution supply chain.
Improved logistics decreases freight costs by maximizing the shipment size per order. Shipments out of BCS facilities can lower freight costs to the end-use customer. Either way, your business is more efficient and profitable.
Avoidance of Capital Investment
Improved return on capital employed (ROCE) by avoidance of investment for product handling. BCS provides ready capacity and can quickly reach agreements and respond if your opportunity requires capital expansion.
Capacity for varying demands in raw materials or finished goods. BCS facilities can be an excellent choice for holding bulk chemicals on a temporary basis or for buffer stock during periodic shortages.
Decreased Lead Times
Critical for materials brought in from Europe, South America, or Asia.
Storage for materials in short supply. With increasing prices of raw materials, this can be an effective means to maintain a superior cost position. Upcoming changes in regulations for transportation of certain materials will lead to increased need for holding larger inventories.
Enhanced Customer Service
BCS sites can be used to improve local distribution and logistics to third party customers providing shorter delivery time, emergency stock, or reduced freight. One of our sites may be uniquely positioned to give your sales team a competitive edge in customer service or logistics.
