Low cost countries are a threat to many manufacturers based in developed nations.  Those that survive, or even thrive, do so because they are innovative, understand their costs, and critically examine their products and most importantly their customers' needs. 

Reliant is a strategic partner in this effort leading the way in reducing cost in ways such as designing plastic parts to replace metal or by simply providing long term durable parts for industrial use.  When you combine sustainable product development with our vendor-managed inventory (VMI) solutions, you achieve real value that far exceeds the first cost benefits of low cost country offerings.
