Inter-Link to provide sourcing savvy
February 16, 2006,
Charlotte, N.C. – A trio of former Springs Industries vets has formed a new venture to bridge the gap between U.S. retailers that lack the wherewithal tobuilding sourcing teams and off-shore manufacturers unable to invest heavily in supply chain and warehousing systems.
The company has forged strategic alliances with warehouse operators in Los Angeles and Charlotte as well as a partnership with a New York-based design firm. Inter-Link will fulfill sales representation, order management, customer service, vendor compliance and EDI functions, Metzler said, remarking, “We’re not an agent; we’re an extension of the manufacturer. We’re their U.S. operation.”
