One of the key challenges facing Riverwood's clients is the broad secular trend toward the decoupling of the sources of innovation from the sources of production via the outsourced manufacturing business model.
The outsourcing of production has risen from a relatively obscure production alternative in 1995 to become the predominant manufacturing and supply chain model for most of the world's electronic products. This dramatic rise in the popularity and prevalence of outsourced manufacturing has created a functional, geographic, organizational and even cultural decoupling of manufacturing from the key centers of innovation, strategy development, and customer relationship management at many OEMs.
Riverwood's (Hybrid Outsourced Services Team) HOST® model was specifically designed to help OEMs bridge the gap caused by this decoupling. It provides our customers with the operations and supply chain expertise and processes they need, in country, and on a variable cost basis. With the HOST model, our customers now have a new solution, and new options for managing their manufacturing and supply chain activities half a world away. Whether you need part time supplier management in China or an entire team of subject matter experts to help manage your offshore manufacturing, the HOST model offers a flexible and cost effective solution.
