However, in every industry, companies that offer value-added services aim to decrease time-to-market, lower costs, and ultimately improve responsiveness, productivity, and throughput for their customers. Value-added connector and cable service providers enable manufacturers to deliver better, more complete products while ensuring a lean, profitable, and streamlined manufacturing process.
