About Global Supply Services

For over fifteen years, we have been helping companies across Europe to unlock strategic savings at all stages of their supply chain.

Based in the picturesque and historical city of York, North Yorkshire, GSS (formerly Unit Eight Components) is one of the United Kingdom’s leading providers of supply chain management and procurement services.

Integrated into the Cyclops Group in 2002, Global Supply Services works closely with OEMs from across Europe to leverage additional cost-savings and efficiencies from their existing supply chain. By reducing the costs associated with the purchasing of parts and harmonising logistical efforts, we are ultimately able to reduce the cost of production, thereby enabling a business to operate smoother and, importantly, in a more profitable manner.

We do this by working closely with your existing staff. By analysing your annual forecasts and using a fair bit of technical wizardry, we put in place a plan that will ensure all the electronic, electrical and electromechanical components and parts that you need is delivered promptly, no matter your production schedules.

In additional, we also ensure that local buffer stock is always available to you – so that you can react to an increase in demand without worrying about lead times.

Simply put, we reduce complexity and costs whilst increasing efficiency and competitiveness.

Testimonials

“Vendor management and direct line feed are key services to Thermo King in Ireland and other locations in Europe, including the Czech Republic, where Global Supply Services has a local presence. We have an annualised commercial agreement, which sets pricing and service levels. This drives the support to the manufacturing lines and allows Thermo King to focus on meeting their product level demand from its customers across Europe.”
