When deciding if global or off-shore centralised sourcing is the correct approach to a project, tight product specification is essential to ensure quality standards can be achieved consistently whilst eradicating inferior product substitution. Components and materials like LED lighting, vinyls and paints are not necessarily produced to a consistent quality across the world.
If the likelihood of a rebrand of scale is conducted in a short space of time, then this model may be a viable solution when all things are considered. More often our experience has been that localised projects in Australia and New Zealand can be better sourced locally often achieving an equal if not better cost outcome as well as a ensuring better quality and consistency long term. Establishing and maintaining legacy supply chains means that warranties will be honoured, and any issues can be resolved efficiently. Any future additions, changes or maintenance can be undertaken quickly and consistently to the original design specification.
