Electrical & electronics services

The purchasing of electrical and electronic components and assemblies for building, production and manufacturing requirements is often a complex, time and resource consuming activity for many organisations.

It is critical to maintaining continuity of production and avoiding costly downtime. An efficient sourcing operation can provide major cost savings, not only with lower purchase prices but also through demand reduction, lower inventory and process improvements. ERA work with a broad spectrum of businesses to embed these best practices and deliver the most effective and lowest cost supplier relationships.

Our specialists have an intimate understanding of electrical and electronic procurement and the suppliers within the industry. ERA also have the recognition and credibility within the supplier markets to command their attention on your behalf. We understand that “lowest price” does not necessarily mean “lowest cost”. In addition to lowering price, ERA finds significant efficiencies in how clients can work with suppliers to lower the overall cost of doing business with them.

All of these capabilities are leveraged to your benefit to create the best supplier relationships at the lowest cost, without any compromise to quality and service.
