The geopolitical landscape is changing, leading to uncertainty around value chain considerations. But what does this mean for you, your business, and most importantly, your consumers? In this article, you will be introduced to some of the many benefits of national production, also known as Homesourcing.
Economy and delivery reliability
BEFORM contributes in the design phase to solutions that result in efficient production and that you, as our customer, get the lowest possible cost, the quality you expect, all delivered as agreed.
With a high degree of automation and input factors such as materials/polymers having a corresponding price per kg regardless of geography, BEFORM has the opportunity to be competitive compared to production in traditional low-cost countries. By using locally sourced production, delivery reliability will increase, and the proportion of transport costs will be reduced, which in turn will have a positive impact on the CO2 balance.
Sustainability and reduced environmental impact
BEFORM actively works on the implementation of recycled materials and contributes to closed loops for each individual customer. This can include materials from products collected from customers for recycling into new products. BEFORM is always looking for good environmental solutions together with our customers.
Norway has strict environmental regulations that require companies to take into account the environment and reduce their environmental impact. By producing goods in Norway, your company can reduce its environmental impact by using sustainable production methods and reducing the need for heavy transport over long distances.
BEFORM can have greater control over the production process and can quickly adapt to any changes in both product design and the market. For example, companies that produce with BEFORM in Norway can more easily adapt to changes in demand and produce smaller batches of goods when necessary. This can mean that it is less likely for products to expire or become unusable, and therefore there will be less waste.
By producing products with BEFORM in Norway, companies can have better control over the production process and ensure that the products meet high-quality standards. This can result in products that are of higher quality and more reliable, which in turn can lead to higher customer satisfaction and long-term economic benefits.
Furthermore, companies that produce with BEFORM can be more transparent regarding production and supply chains. Consumers may have the opportunity to learn more about where products come from, what materials are used, and what working conditions are offered to the workers who produce the goods. This can give consumers a sense of security and trust in the products they purchase. This is a win-win situation for all involved parties.
Higher employee standards
Norway has strict labor standards and regulations for worker protection, and companies that produce in Norway must follow these standards. This can lead to better working conditions and rights for workers who produce the products, which in turn can give consumers a sense of safety and quality.
Production at BEFORM also provides opportunities for innovation and development. Companies that produce in Norway have access to highly educated workers, research institutions, and innovative ecosystems that can contribute to the development of new technologies and production methods. This can give the company a competitive advantage and create new opportunities for growth and expansion.
