Increase Profits with Depatie’s Kitting and Vendor Managed Inventory

When it comes to the distribution of fluid power and automation components, Depatie Fluid Power Company doesn’t just aim to supply your facilities, we strive to be a valuable partner. Whether you’re in need of a one-time supply of fluid connectors or you’re looking for a more comprehensive supply chain solution that includes vendor managed inventory, we are ready to step up and fill the role.

To illustrate our dedication to absolute customer satisfaction, we’d like to highlight a recent case study involving a major machine builder. This builder was having issues with lost time due to disorder in their inventory. With employees pulling the wrong parts, losing parts or not being able to locate the right parts, a solution was needed that simplified the build procedures for their employees and put their manufacturing processes back on track.

Our solution was to create a line of assembly kits that consolidated the necessary parts into a single, bundled package. Assigning a bar code to the packages, we ensured that inventory control was a breeze and, due to the kit-like approach, we were able to cut down on the time that was being wasted searching for the appropriate parts.

As a result of our efforts, we were able to reduce inventory, eliminate time searching for parts and meet the demands set forth by the clients’ customers. Our team of vendor managed inventory specialists now visits the builder’s facility every week to take orders and replenish stocks. In the end, we were able to help the builder decrease build time by 20%, inventory by 40% and, most importantly, raise profits.

At Depatie Fluid Power Company, we’re committed to providing more than products and services. We aim to provide options and solutions. If you’ve been considering vendor managed inventory or you feel that the way that you currently source parts for your manufacturing process could be streamlined, give us a call today and let us work with you to find a solution.
