MCA Solutions Named to Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 List for Fourth Year

PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MCA Solutions, the leader in service parts planning and optimization, is being recognized as a top supply chain company on this year’s Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100. This marks the fourth time MCA has been named to this prestigious list, which speaks to MCA’s ongoing commitment to developing innovative technology to help major organizations improve their service businesses, cut costs and drive new revenue.

“Smart manufacturers know that service is critical to their success, especially in times like these when new product revenue is less certain,” said Bob Salvucci, president and CEO of MCA Solutions. “We’re expanding our customer base in our traditional industries as well as new industries, including oil and gas products and services. While requirements vary, all of our customers are finding more ways to deliver value from their aftermarket service offering.”

MCA recently surveyed more than 30 executives at leading companies across several core industries, and found that:

  • Semiconductor equipment companies are struggling the most. Demand for new products has continued to drop (by more than 50% compared to last year), increasing their focus on aftermarket services, which are now driving a much higher percentage of total revenue.
  • Aerospace and Defense organizations reported a reduction in the number of flying hours generated by their customers, which has reduced spare parts consumption, and therefore, revenue. Many A&D organizations are launching new service offerings, such as performance-based logistics (PBL) or "power by the hour" aftermarket support programs.
  • Medical equipment companies don’t appear to be as affected by the economy, but are relying more heavily on aftermarket service to support existing customers.
  • Automotive companies are clearly struggling to sell new cars. Consumers are extending the usage of products, generating increased revenue through service and parts.
  • Oil and Gas equipment companies are seeing the fluctuating demand for new equipment sales, based on oil and energy prices, but have seen significant opportunities in offering aftermarket services that ensure their customers can maintain high utilization of their equipment.

“Our readers are looking for solutions and best practices for enabling the supply chain to weather the current economic storm, and also to position themselves for growth when recovery takes hold," said Andy K. Reese, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Our goal with this year's ‘100’ is to highlight a broad range of solutions and services targeted at a variety of industries, addressing the needs of companies of varying sizes, and assisting in the transformation of a diverse mix of the functions that make up the supply chain.”

MCA Solutions has spent years helping major manufacturers like Boeing, Bobst Group and the U.S. Navy, in good economic times and bad, increase product availability, reduce costs and generate new revenue by effectively planning and placing spare parts throughout global distribution networks.
