Medical Device: End-of-Life/Last Time Buy

Quick Summary

  • Capital Preserved: $21M
  • Partstat Savings: $1.6M
  • Term: 5 Years Years

After a global medical OEM received a Last Time Buy notice from their component manufacturer on 96 critical parts they use in production, they engaged Partstat for help. Through an Inventory Ownership Solution, Partstat was able to use its own capital to make the Last Time Buy for the entire forecasted quantity on the OEM’s behalf. Since the OEM works with several EMS partners, they also engaged Partstat to build several years of buffer stock of this critical inventory.

Partstat was able to lock in the cost of the inventory, mitigating any future inflation, while also storing it in its semiconductor vault to protect downstream revenues. Partstat also uses its custom global fulfillment to ship to the multiple EMS partners the OEM uses, while also handling all the reporting, third party billing, and purchase administration.
