Everyone will remember 2020 as the “year of challenge”. Cardinal met our challenges head-on and remained flexible to meet changing customer needs. Possible disruptions within the supply chain were assessed and mitigated; stability increased through continual communication with our customers and suppliers; and preventive measures were enacted to keep our entire team safe, all as we remained fully operational to serve our diverse customer base.

Heading into 2021, Cardinal’s customers can count on Cardinal to continue being a pillar of stability and driver of continual improvement for sourcing assembly, custom metal and components. An example of continual improvement is our 1.5 year paper record digitalization project, in which we now maintain all records in our ERP computer system. This project increased productivity and lowered our overhead rate, as we know that our customers love LEAN supply management!!!

We look forward to working with you and your team: together, stronger.
