IBM, Sunsweet Supply Chains Have Something in Common

It would be difficult to think of two manufacturing companies that are more different from one another than IBM Corp. and Sunsweet Growers Inc. A $91 billion high-tech manufacturing giant, IBM competes globally against some of the world's largest technology providers. Sunsweet, on the other hand, is a $250 million maker of dried fruit products and often competes against small, regional, low-cost providers. Yet, the two companies do have some things in common. Over the past few years, both have made improving their supply chains cornerstones of their business strategies.
