It is a common philosophy “to be strong for others, you must first be strong yourself.” This is our premise for being a reliable, strategic partner for OEMs and specialty product providers. To achieve this objective, our management goals have focused on two directives:
Our Anderson Fittings leadership team believes the best way to fortify our ability to partner is to be business-unit focused, keeping growth in the forefront of our model. We use a strategic matrix to gauge the attractiveness of a relevant industry and then measure our unit’s competitive strength within that industry. This decision-making process allows us to acquire, divest and selectively invest in capabilities and resources to best serve you, and we will continue to do so.
What does that mean for you? It means working with a supplier that knows how to be a reliable, long-term partner. As a result, here’s what you can expect from us:
The management of new products is really the management of risk. So who you partner with becomes vitally important to the return on your investment in your new product. At the beginning of a project, the amounts at stake (e.g., time, resources, and costs) are usually low, while the uncertainty of the outcome is very high. As the project progresses the amounts at stake increase. If risk is to be managed successfully, the uncertainties of outcomes must be deliberately driven down as the stakes increase. Uncertainty and amounts at stake must be kept in balance. This is what we do. As your product development partner, we are tasked with managing the inherent risks by reducing the uncertainties to help realize your investment at the time of launch.
