Resilinc announces top 30 suppliers in the high-tech industry with highest resiliency score


Resilinc, the supply chain mapping, risk monitoring, and resiliency solution, has announced the Top 30 companies in the high-tech supply chain with the best risk and resiliency programs.

Companies with a prominent UK and EU presence include IBM, Seagate, Ericsson, GSK and Sellafield Ltd, all of whom scored highly. These 30 companies were selected based on their Resilinc R Score, a patented risk-scoring system that 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 have been part of Resilinc’s network for many years. 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. 

Bindiya Vakil, CEO and co-founder of Resilinc, says: “It has been a tremendously challenging time for the high-tech sector; from semiconductor constraints and geopolitical concerns to extreme demand shifts, these companies have been operating in an increasingly disruptive environment. 

“But despite all the challenges, the Top 30 have done a tremendous job navigating through it and collaborating with customers and with their direct and sub-tier suppliers alike, to identify problems quickly and mitigate issues proactively. These companies are proving that collaboration, transparency, risk monitoring, supply chain mapping, and proactive mitigation are the keys to supply chain resilience. A big congratulations to the 30 winners.”   

Here is what some of our Top R Score® companies had to say about being recognised and why supply chain resiliency is a critical component to their business: 

Bob Murphy, Chief Procurement Officer at IBM says: “Mitigating supplier risk exposure is imperative to ensure brand trust and continuity of supply. At IBM, we have built a holistic and agile risk mitigation strategy enabled by innovative technologies that increase our visibility and help to reduce response times. Supplier and sub-tier supplier relationships are key and we require all suppliers to have adequate business continuity plans in place. 

“And, through our supplier mapping, we know our suppliers’ level of resiliency and this information guides decisions that can mitigate disruptions and help us locate alternate sources of supply if needed. Our transformation and digitalisation efforts have given us a marked competitive advantage during the current periods of global supply chain disruption.” 

"Seagate is honoured to be recognised by the Resilinc R Score for our supply chain resiliency," said Marcos Meirelles, SVP of supply chain management at Seagate. "It's a true testament to the hard, dedicated work of our team, which continues to navigate the company through tumultuous times delivering stability for our customers."
