Find Supplier Fast

Proficient Sourcing has a varied and extensive network of experienced and capable job shop suppliers.  You can find a list of our capabilities here.

Our claim to fame, in addition to having candidates at the ready is that we can find suppliers FAST.  Here are just a few examples of possible supplier candidates that were NOT in our network at the time.

  • A Texas OEM needed a neighboring supplier for custom aluminum extrusions.  In a matter of days we found an excellent and qualified fit within a few hundred miles, which is just next door in Texas. 
  • A customer needed a source for exotic gasket seals.  We were able to find one of the very few suppliers of this specific type of material within 2 days of the request.
  • We supplied a prospective customer domestic die casters for a zinc product.
  • Hard chrome plating was needed; we now have an excellent supplier and found them very quickly after this came to our attention.
  • Compression molded rubber motor mounts were another item where the customer needed a supplier with particular characteristics.  We found a suitable candidate within days.
  • Customer needed fabricated pieces of an assembly dip molded.  We had 3 competing candidates the day of the requirement, and one won the business with very good terms.
  • A prospective customer has requested several foundry items specific to he railroad industry.  We have a source for such castings with decades of experience, so we were able to supply options immediately.
  • We have prior experience with medical devices, so when ISO 13485 certified suppliers are needed, we have a storehouse of prior knowledge for such requests and several possible companies in and out of our network.

In 10 years we have been unable to find a suitable supplier candidate only once.  And this one is still underway, so we may eventually be successful.  Otherwise, our selling point is that we save you time and money by obtaining supplier candidates for whatever you need and do so FAST.  Out work comes free of charge until there’s something bought.  Again, here’s the list of our network capabilities.

So when you are tasked to find a supplier for something and you’ve not got a good candidate in hand, check us out!  This is what we do, and we’d be delighted to prove our worth to you.  Just give us a call (513) 489-5252.  We’re ready whenever you are.
