Global Sourcing Services: Do you know S4S?

S4S offeringBrowsing the web to find relevant information or service providers is a powerful method but time consuming still. Based on this straightforward observation, let me present you a company called S4S, offering a broad range of strategic and operational sourcing services. Their website is well done, their offering compelling and the information provided proves at least that they know what they are talking about. S4S stands for Sourcing for Success. Established in 2002 in the industrial North West of England – in Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire – S4S is a consultancy and project management company dealing with any manufacturing, Purchasing, Global sourcing or cost reduction process that does or might affect your business. One of S4S’ main strengths is assisting clients purchasing goods and services from either UK or global suppliers and in particular from companies based in India or China with a view to reducing costs and increasing profit. You can judge by yourself by reading their “about us page” I pasted below:

At S4S we quite simply offer a one source solution to all your Global sourcing requirements. Whether you want S4S to manage the whole process for you, or whether you want S4S to train you on how to do it yourself, or even if you just want to know if you should consider outsourcing in the first place, all you need to do is to contact us and we will solve that problem for you.
