How Midlake combined 9 vendors into 1

9 Vendors Into 1 with Midlake

Our customer was using NINE vendors to make this component. We were one of them.

Our customer’s challenge was managing many vendors and components… making everything fit together on budget and on time.

The customer now has one vendor – Midlake.

We brought everything together under one roof and streamlined the vendor chain by creating a 1-piece integrated hinge.

We improved the quality, reduced the lead time, and saved the customer money!
