Vendor Managed Programs
When you partner with American Bolt, we'll help you find ways to reduce cost. We take a hands-on role in the active management of items we provide, which can help you significantly reduce your inventory costs. We accomplish this by employing properly trained individuals with modern technology. Inquire with your sales representative for more information.
A dedicated VMI Specialist is assigned to each VMI Program. These specialists are trained to help our customers reduce costs while keeping inventory demands met.
VMI Programs offer the benefit of having your own warehouse at your facility without the cost. A “just in time” approach reduces the cost of carrying inventory by only stocking the products you need in the quantities you need them.
Our VMI programs are designed around each customer and are tailored to their unique requirements. Programs can be as simple as a single stocking area to a complex point of use system. Flexible billing schedules can be arranged, and since parts are delivered with our trucks customers won’t be charged for freight.
If your current bins are not adequate, American Bolt can supply them for you. Qualifying programs receive bin setups at no charge to the customer. We offer a variety of labels to meet all your requirements. Labels can show size, description, customer part number, minimum/maximum amounts, and location.
We use the latest technology in scanning, which eliminates any writing errors and creates an immediate order.
We provide customers with a variety of usage reports. Since each bin receives its own unique tag number, reports can be generated for separate locations throughout a customer’s facility or for their cumulative usage. Our reports can be created for any time interval.
