Episode 2: The inner workings of the Fabricated Metals Industry

Key challenges that are facing the Fabricated Metals Industry

Solutions that manufacturers should look at adopting to thrive into the future

The consequences of global supply chain disruption, labor shortages, rising costs, regional instabilities and general uncertainty continue to challenge the fabricated metal and manufacturing industry in general. The shift from oversupply to the current worldwide shortage has impacted raw materials, inbound logistics, the factory floor, and the outbound warehouse.

With the volatile markets, offshore price cutting and increasing customer demands for quality, speed and customization, metal fabricators have had to become more innovative and adopt technology solutions to maintain competitive advantage.

Host Roger Landman, Head of Product Management at SYSPRO unpacks the trends, challenges, and solutions for the fabricated metals industry with Joe Velez, Managing Director of Ultra Consultants, a consultancy that assists businesses in transforming their processes and to select the correct solution for their future state requirements and challenges.
