Plywood importer purchase order subcontracted by two middlemen: do not let subcontracting reduce plywood quality
Successful large plywood enterprises, middlemen earning differential prices, middlemen with access, field-work construction side plywood factories… It seems that around the parties to the public order, some tacit understanding and rules of conduct have already been reached, “the viewers have a share, not disclose each other”.
The news that plywood processors have cut corners is still fermenting.
In response to this, there is no problem of illegal subcontracting in plywood importer’s response, but as a contract signer of plywood orders, there is indeed a problem of poor order management. “A special investigation team has been set up at the company headquarters level to thoroughly investigate the problems in subcontracting management.
Whether the plywood orders are subcontracted irregularly or not remains to be investigated and determined. However, it is an indisputable fact that there are multiple subcontracting phenomena in the process of the project, which is not a “poor management” can prevaricate.
According to the media reports, Linyi A plywood factory is responsible for many times of reversal in the middle of the project, from plywood order signing company to Linyi B plywood foreign trade company, Linyi B plywood foreign trade company to Linyi A plywood processing factory, due to the dispute of “remuneration” between the intermediaries and the worry about the quality responsibility of plywood. The responsible person reported that he had cut corners during the construction.
Such “reporting oneself” is of course contingent. However, besides contingency, the exposure of similar events also has certain inevitability.
Firstly, subcontracting layer by layer means stripping and eating profit layer by layer, which will inevitably dilute the profits of “going home”, and the more links of subcontracting, the less money the direct plywood production plant will have until it is unprofitable. Once the imbalance in the distribution of internal interests exceeds the affordability of “going home”, it will inevitably collapse.
Secondly, subcontracting layer by layer gradually weakens the quality and safety factor of industrial plywood. Self-exposure or exposure is only a matter of time.
An order for plywood goes too far from outsourcing to processing. Every link will be touched by hands, wiping oil, money drained, responsibility overhead, and to the end of plywood production, I am afraid that only jerry-building. Even if the plywood is barely finished, it will mean endless repairs in the future, and may even lead directly to safety accidents.
The news that plywood orders have been subcontracted layer by layer is not the only one recently. One of the characteristics is that the seemingly standard bidding still fails to prevent illegal subcontracting, while the supervisor responsible for supervision is often absent.
Breaking this chain of interests, we can not passively wait for insiders to reveal; dealing with the relevant responsible persons can not end with “suspension of duty”, we should overcome the greed of human nature with the rigor of the system and the rigidity of the law.
Generally speaking, it is necessary for all parties concerned to check how many major plywood orders are still subcontracted layer by layer, peeled layer by layer, and even jerry-built in the construction process to cause losses to customers, and the reputation of the factory is discredited. “Zero tolerance” for violations of law should be implemented in strict prosecution, rather than just posturing afterwards.
