360 Vision Technology defies global component shortages offering short lead times on all cameras
360 Vision Technology, the leading UK manufacturer of rugged HD, hybrid, radar and thermal imaging cameras, has confirmed that despite global component shortages, the company is bucking the trend by offering customers short lead times on its range of static and PTZ cameras.
As with many industries relying on the use of semiconductors and other electronic components, the global pandemic has seriously affected consistent component supply, increasing their lead times. In addition, even when available, some key components costs have risen dramatically.
However, to combat the inevitable challenges about to face the global supply chain, early in the component crisis, 360 Vision introduced ‘extraordinary planning measures’ to secure bulk-buy purchasing on all key components, for a minimum of 12 months on all standard product options. To cope with the additional demand on storage, 360 Vision invested in building a new factory floor facility to hold the massive component stock.
“Despite global supply shortages affecting most CCTV camera manufacturers, with many quoting as much as 16-26 weeks for delivery, 360 Vision are pleased to confirm that its current lead time on all orders for standard camera products remains 4-6 weeks,” says Sara Fisher, 360 Vision Technology’s Sales Director. “Supporting British industry, the vast majority of 360 Vision components are manufactured in the UK. Allied to this, our purchasing team have managed to consistently source components and maintain a cost platform that has led to little, or no price increases passed to our customers. We remain confident in our continued supply of UK designed and manufactured products, to support our installer and end-user customers with price and lead-time confidence for their time sensitive projects.”
