A major Japanese maker of Computer Printers had set up an assembly plant in the United States to assemble printer ribbon cartridges for use in its products. The Japanese company supplied all the plastic molds and most of the components for this project. Having molding and some assembly work done in the U.S. was getting too expensive for the U.S. plant manager. He asked TGC to help. Since the U.S. assembly line was running JIT production, shipping times became the controlling factor.

TGC moved the molding process and about 40% of the assembly process to a company in Mexico. The Mexican company supplied excellent quality product with weekly shipments at a cost savings of approximately 35%.
