Supply Chain Management
Global Sourcing – A Local Solution

Bela offers a full procurement and kit preparation service that will manage all your material needs. All components, PCBs, hardware and tooling fixture requirements are supported by our supplier partnerships.

As part of the Vanilla Group of companies, Bela benefits from the support of a dedicated supply chain business; Vanilla Electronics, in Thetford, Norfolk. Through both our own and Vanilla’s wider global network of supply partners, we can offer you a local solution to your material requirements regardless of market conditions – guaranteed!

Whenever possible we triple source all components to guarantee a supply route, regardless of market conditions. Our supply chain is robust and repeatable; it’s your peace of mind.

Our MRP/ERP system is our sourcing database, stock control system and monitors our supplier’s performance. Once your order is placed an immediate ‘real-time’ demand is generated and orders placed, NO delays.

Our automated costing tools and sophisticated BOM management systems provide live data, from lifecycle, environmental compliance, pricing and even stock availability.

Our objective is simple; a complete kit, to your specification ready on time to enter manufacturing, NO excuses.

What We Offer

A seamless service and the right solution to your requirements:

  • Global sourcing / Strategic partnerships with major and bespoke suppliers.
  • Fast costings and quotations.
  • Purchasing Agreements, Buffer stocks and Kanban.
  • Incoming material inspection and quality control.
  • Bar-coded material control and 100% traceability back to source.
  • Static and moisture control.
  • FIFO inventory control.

All our assemblies are individually barcoded and traceable down to component level. When we AOI inspect, we store a high-definition image of each passed assembly, meaning we don't have to physically recall a product to review it.

From all of us at Bela, we hope everyone has a great Christmas and New Year, here is to a prosperous 2022🎉

We will be closing for the holidays on Christmas Eve and will be opening again on the 4th of January.

At Bela we believe that one of our greatest strengths, is that we understand that we’re in a service industry. Yes we manufacture things, but it’s the service we offer which makes us stand out from our competitors.
