Flexcon adds supply chain management group

LeanCor Supply Chain Group, a provider of end-to-end supply chain management and logistics, announced that Flexcon, a supplier coated and laminated films and adhesives, has selected the company as its third-party logistics provider to manage logistics engineering and transportation execution in order to advance performance and deliver improved customer experience.

LeanCor will engineer and manage Flexcon’s North American transportation network, providing a dedicated team of logisticians at its Florence, Kentucky-based Logistics Control Center, an on-site transportation manager, and system connectivity.

‘We’re excited to become a strategic, end-to-end supply chain partner as Flexcon pursues logistics as a competitive advantage,’ said Derek Browning, director at LeanCor. ‘Our mutual commitment to lean thinking will foster cross-functional collaboration that leads to new operational efficiencies. I want to thank the Flexcon team for enabling a seamless transition as we launch our partnership.’

Flexcon will receive real-time visibility and optimization of product flowing through its North American transportation network. Building upon an existing culture of continuous improvement, LeanCor will provide advanced analytics to support root-cause problem solving, lead time reduction and defect elimination. As a strategic, collaborative, and transparent partner, LeanCor will leverage system data to drive valuable process improvement and accountability across the supply chain.

‘To continually improve the level of service and quality we bring to our customers, it’s essential that we can identify problems at the source and adapt accordingly,’ said Aimee Peacock, chief financial officer at Flexcon. ‘We are excited to be working with this like-minded logistics partner that will support our continuous improvement goals and help us to bring the best possible experience to our customers.’
