Maccabeus has worked both directly and/or indirectly with just about every Supplier. This includes Tier 1 through Tier 4 Suppliers, Aftermarket Suppliers, Material Suppliers, etc. With a strong working knowledge of the material specification and component and system validation processes, Maccabeus can leverage its global expertise in all areas to be able to recommend strong Executive talent across every single function at our Clients. By leveraging an in-depth working knowledge from the inside-out, we know what it means to shutdown an assembly line – either at the OEM or at the Supplier. The global supplier base represents about 50% of what we do, so we know and understand it well, as well as the Executive talent that resides within it.
