Resilinc announces top 30 most resilient suppliers in the high-tech industry for 2023


This article is brought to you by Retail Technology Review: Resilinc announces top 30 most resilient suppliers in the high-tech industry for 2023.

Resilinc, the supply chain mapping, disruption sensing, and resiliency analytics company, has announced the Top 30 companies in the high-tech supply chain with the best risk and resiliency programs. These 30 companies were selected based on their Resilinc R Score.

This patented risk-scoring system measures supply chain resiliency based on key metrics including performance, network resilience, transparency, continuity of supply, and risk program maturity.

Each of the 30 companies on the list is a supplier to multiple high-tech OEMs and has been part of Resilinc’s network for at least one year. All scored well based on their high degree of transparency and ongoing collaboration with the OEM to provide supply chain intelligence down multiple tiers. 

This includes responding quickly with a yes/no impact status during a disruption and providing alternate sites when possible to reduce recovery time. They are all rated strong performers by their customers across operational metrics including business continuity planning and reliability. Companies with a prominent UK and EU presence include Eaton Corp., Seagate Technology, Ericsson, Marelli, Microsoft and T-Mobile, all of whom scored highly. 

“I am excited to see the evolution of this year’s Top 30 list. The progress companies are making in their journey to supply chain resiliency is evident in the growing number of organisations topping the list,” said Rick Freeman, Resilinc’s Director of Advisory Services. 

“Last year, the top performers comprised seven companies, and now it encompasses 10, while the middle cohort doubled in size. As more organizations adopt best practices like supply chain mapping, risk monitoring, supplier assessments, and collaboration, the future of global supply chains looks more resilient and secure. A big congratulations to the 30 winners,” he adds.

The top 10 stand out because of their high degree of maturity in how they map multiple tiers of their supply chain and work hard to build trust with suppliers. They also leverage technology to improve visibility and foster collaboration with direct and sub-tier suppliers.
