With manufacturing capability in the US, Europe, and the Pacific Rim, AV has more than 20 years of diversified manufacturing expertise that provides customers with the flexibility and scalability required of the high-growth electric vehicle industry. AV coordinates its California operations hub with a robust global supply chain to assure timely and cost-effective product delivery around the world.
AV requires all contract manufacturers to be ISO 9001:2008 compliant, and our Supplier Management Procedures dictate the strictest monitoring of our supply chain base. Procedures include Supplier Performance Monitoring, which entails regular reports based on Receiving and Inspection metrics; and Supplier Evaluations, which call for supplier reports and evaluation of vendors under consideration for the manufacturing of new products.
Global Suppliers for Global Customers
We employ a supply chain strategy that leverages regional and low-cost manufacturing suppliers to satisfy our customers on a global basis. With established manufacturing locations to support European, Asian, and US customers requiring local content, we’re well positioned to support large and burgeoning electric vehicle markets.
Inventory and Stock Management
We deliver forecast-driven volume from local stock, and maintain buffer stock in several locations. Critical components such as semiconductors and PCBs have multiple qualified sources to reduce the risk of stock shortages. As EV launch announcements gather momentum, our production plan is positioned to accommodate growing volumes from our OEM, utility, commercial, and municipal customers.
