Proven solutions that identify high-quality suppliers of direct goods and materials from anywhere in the world

Corcentric has helped hundreds of companies identify supply and reduce their costs of direct materials, goods, and services. From steel to chemicals and semi-finished machined parts to entire high-end finished assemblies, we have experience in just about every spend category imaginable

We offer solutions to help you source your direct materials. Low-cost country sourcing, near-shoring, off-shoring, developing nations or local supply, we have sourced it all. We can help with any aspect of your direct materials sourcing initiative, from supplier identification through RFP, negotiations, supplier qualifications, and implementation.
Corcentric understands that the procurement of direct materials must be directly linked to customer satisfaction. If an inexpensive alternate product is in any way inferior to the product it replaces, then the cost saving benefits do not outweigh our customer’s, and their customer’s, ultimate satisfaction.
Our goal is to help you find the right supplier, in the right geography, at the right price, to deliver you quality and dependable direct goods, direct service, and raw materials that you use in your end offering. We are often able to accomplish cost reduction while simultaneously maintaining or improving your quality and lead times.
