Consistency and Reliability

Deployment of a single enterprise resource planning (ERP) system efficiently interconnects the global operations that Sanmina has established in our facilities around the world. This consistent platform enables us to manage complex system integrations with equal agility in North America, Asia, Eastern Europe, Brazil, Latin America and India.

Plus, our integrated supply chain and logistics systems allow for worldwide visibility. In fact, common systems facilitate a consistent approach to program deployment and product lifecycle transitions between any of our global manufacturing sites.
