The 17th Global Foundry Sourcing Conference 2015 Successfully Held in Qingdao

 

The Chinese Academy of Social Science once released Economic Blue Paper, Summer Version: China Economic Growth Report (2014-2015) to claim that China's economic growth speed will be 6.9% in 2015. However, it has raised some anxieties from the market as the forecast is lower than what made by Chinese government. The reflections of depressed economic situation can be seen in all business and industries. As the foundation of traditional manufacturing, foundry industry is suffering severe decline. The current problem in foundry industry is how to adapt to the globalization market and position their brand in order to maintain long-term and healthy development.

How to compete in the global market as the traditional manufacturing industry? FSC invited the famous supply chain manager Mr. Zhouxi from CASAPPA to give a speech based on this problem, about seven demands of supply chain management and suppliers’ evaluation: quality, cost, delivery, service, technology, fund, staff and process. He pointed out the importance of suppliers' cash flow, as well as some suggestions: make specific product strategies; never compromise on quality and continuous improvement; employ professional manager; provide added service and explore opportunity of “Internet+” to traditional manufacturing. Most of suppliers have approved his speech and decided to adjust their management of company to face the challenges from market.

SC has been committing to the research of international casting market for long time. They reported that since the beginning of this year, the demand for buying parts showed overall weakness in the multinational corporations, purchasers started to optimize the supply chain and reduce procurement costs by reducing the number of suppliers, internal layoffs, reducing travel plans. More and more multinational groups transferred the low added-value casting purchase orders from China to some Southeast Asian countries like India which can provide cheap labor. China's foundry production enterprises not only suffered from the insufficient of downstream buyers, but also faced the pressure of capital, labor and environmental protection. It’s imminent for us to deal with the current crisis! FSC appealed: Domestic casting production enterprises shall analyze the downstream market correctly and make product located; control quality, compress cost; learn management process and technological innovation from developed countries and keep improving; compete the quality and service with the low cost countries, strive for a comparative advantage. At the same time, we should do more works on the market, analyze the purchasing trend of multinational groups, and apply international trade rules expertly. Only in this way can we develop the international market better, occupy a favorable position in the global casting market pattern and promote the healthy development of enterprises.
