reMarkable Supply Chain department

Value is created by several building blocks. We build the road from ambition to finished product - step by step.

Supply chains can be vulnerable, and an Achilles heel for the unfortunate. Our mission is to build a global supply chain that not only enables our vision for better thinking but also ensures quality at all levels. Our goal is for each building block to take us one step closer to our vision.

New product introduction

Our responsibility lies in following and transforming new ideas into prototypes, and all the way to finished products. We make sure that new products are introduced within our objective on timeline, cost and quality - and that we have a scalable production that meets our demand and quality criteria. Every step and every idea should be worth the effort, and worth our footprint.
