Dear Advanced Energy Vendors:

It is that time of year again to start planning for Advanced Energy's yearly physical count activity for AE owned stock located at vendor sites.

Over the course of 2021, Advanced Energy has reviewed its processes for this physical count activity, and we have determined that due to less working days and year-end activities in the month of December that we would move our yearly count activities to be managed over the course of the month of November.

Due to this change Advanced Energy felt it necessary to provide you our vendors notification in October to assist you in planning for this upcoming necessary count activity.

You should see requests asking for counts in your locations starting the first week of November and ask that you please have necessary inventory count feedback returned no later than the second week in November. This will assist with any reconciliation activities necessary for us to meet a goal of posting all our vendor counts prior to end of month.

We appreciate your attention and support during this very critical activity.

 

Sincerely,

CHARLIE JIMENEZ

Manager, Worldwide Inventory Control
