SECONDARY & CUSTOM SERVICES
THE FULL-SERVICE EXPERIENCE
Through a variety of custom services including secondary processes (kitting, painting, plating, patching, etc.), inventory management, engineered solutions, demand planning, and forecasting, we help you boost efficiency and reduce total cost of ownership.
Looking for fasteners made to blueprint? If you need parts with unusual sizes, materials, or finishes, we work with our vendor network to manufacture products that meet your unique requirements.
If you want less inventory on hand to simplify your supply chain, BRF Inventory Management services can help. These range from warehousing to on-site VMI-related bin stocking programs. We also offer drop shipping capabilities, an off-site hybrid VMI solution to help reduce your total cost of hardware without having outside representatives in your facility, and financing through “stock and release” programs.
We kit, package, and assemble fasteners 365 days per year to help clients save time, reduce labor, and cut costs. Kitting services are handled both on-site and off-site and include a variety of bag sizes, films, and printing options such as barcodes.
If you are looking for specific colors to meet your customers' decorative or functional requirements, we offer a few fastener painting solutions depending on the size of the job. We can color-match to your existing hardware or paint to industry color codes.
DEMAND PLANNING & FORECASTING
Can your fastener distributor correctly forecast the number of parts you will need to accomplish your long-term production goals? Through sophisticated data analysis, BRF anticipates your monthly or annual purchasing needs and builds a safety stock to ensure your production line keeps running smoothly.
