TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP

80/20 Rule -- We understand that 20% of your hardware accounts for 80% of your spend, and 20% of your items account for 80% of your usage. We have built operational processes that identify the 20% of hardware that is most important to our customers and which ensures we always have inventory and are driving down the cost of these items over time. Our processes require data and communication from our customers, and we take care of the rest

What makes up the cost of a fastener? Did you know that the material is only a small % of the overall cost? And when considering the cost, are freight, warehousing and quality control taken into consideration? We combine Supply Chain & Logistics expertise with data and continuous improvement processes to drive down the total cost of our clients fasteners over time.
