Case Studies

Input:Upon thorough market research on best of Hydraulic Pumps manufacturers, APA has zeroed in on one of the top manufacturers in India, and the OE sample has been offered to them for basic study and costing for the Pump.

Deliverables:Apart from locating the manufacturer of the Pump, APA has assisted this manufacturer in finding out the sources for child parts like Pistons, Valve Body assembly, Adapters, O Rings, etc.

Key Challenge:Before Pump lot was confirmed at the manufacturer end, we had done 40 hrs of test run and 20 samples was provided till we reached approval for sample.

Benefits:APA quality inspectors inspects checks performance of pump and only picks as per requirement by customers. The material is then sent to APA warehouse for consolidation, all inspection reports are available in our “Online Inspection Dashboard” for customer to view it. Since the Pumps are dispatched to end customers directly savings in transportation Costs, and supply lead times as well
