Manufacturing Prints Aren’t Always

Read More At Bowden Manufacturing, we know you want to crush the job as a purchasing professional so that your company improves and your career advances. But, with a position as dynamic as a purchasing agent in the manufacturing industry, you can easily get lost trying to get caught up to the demands of the job.

Successful purchasing agents need to know manufacturing and business so they can evaluate technical drawings and source their parts correctly. And while your company may have trained you at this position, a majority of that time is dedicated to learning your purchasing system, leaving you lacking in manufacturing knowledge. These drawings offer very few obvious clues to even start an internet search.

We believe your opportunity for career advancement shouldn’t be limited by your manufacturing knowledge. That’s why we established the Purchasing Agent Assist Service so that our experienced engineers can help you read your drawings.

Here’s how it works: Upload your drawing and our engineers will evaluate it. When we send you back our evaluation, we will give tips that will show you how we got the information we did so you won't need us next time. Your first “Insights” review is free. Send us your drawing today and gain a better understanding of the manufacturing processes you need. Save yourself time and save your company money. Put your career on a new trajectory, continuing your climb up the corporate ladder of success.
