Oneflow Lighting up Megamans Supply Chain. Oneflow are pleased to announce that we are now supplying Megaman, a leading manufacturer of low energy light bulbs, with products for its LightwaveRF range. LightwaveRF is a range of intelligent dimmers, radiator valves, sockets and sensors that are just that little bit smarter. All LightwaveRF devices can be controlled from handheld remotes, PIR sensors
or a smartphone, IPad or IPod Touch.
Megaman approached Oneflow to help them solve a problem in their supply chain. With as many as 70 different products in the LightwaveRF Dimmer range and the source of supply in the far east, it was not cost effective for Megaman to source all products and stock them at their Milton Keynes warehouse. With the products being sold through demanding retail outlets on short lead times, Megaman needed a partner who could supply the higher variety lower volume options. With options combining different levels of functionality, switch combinations and finishes, Megaman also need a supplier who could handle the level of complexity and find engineering solutions to make the full range from the core standard product.
This is where Oneflow stepped in, engineering a solution to Megamans problem and setting up a manufacturing facility at our Stoneleigh base to supply the product. Oneflow is now supplying Megaman on an ongoing basis, receiving an order, re-configuring the standard product to one of the options, testing the unit, packaging it into its retail packaging and shipping it to Milton Keynes, all within the space of one day.
John Baldwin, MD at Oneflow said "This is a perfect example of what we are about at Oneflow; solving our customers problems through engineering, responsive manufacturing and supply chain management. By doing this we are able to add value to our customers and supply a total solution designed to meet their needs. We are proud to work with Megaman and look forward to continued success with them going forward."
