The vision behind Subcontract Solutions:

Long years experience in the Foundry & Forge industry have enabled Subcontract Solutions' founders to develop hands-on solutions:
  • to overcome traditional market inefficiencies
  • to benefit from the e-business potentialities
Traditional market inefficiencies:

At present, the market processes are too costly, too long and too inefficients:


1. Highly fragmented market
  • Over 10 000 buyers in western Europe
  • Over 2000 foundries (> 20 employees)
  • Over 500 forges (> 20 employees)
  • Thousands of suppliers to the foundry and forge industry
  • Wide range of buyer and supplier profiles
  2. Low transparency and High information cost
  • Identification of new suppliers / buyers is a long and costly process
  • Information availability is not satisfactory
  3. High workflow cost
  • Preparing and dispatching of documents is too time consuming
  • The procurement / marketing processes can be further optimised

e-business potentialities

  • automate and accelerate your business process
  • optimise your supplier / customer base
  • collaborate faster and better
