Fastener Distribution is one of the staple industries that keeps our country’s businesses operating and economy strong. Without fasteners, things would simply fall apart, and without distributors, industries would collapse. We’re proud to provide high-quality products such as Belleville Washers, Flange Washers, Load Washers, and Disc Springs for businesses in the often underappreciated Fastener Distribution industry.
Dependable Products Trusted by Fastener Distribution Leaders
Decades ago, the role of most fastener distributors was well-defined. They would simply purchase products in large quantities, hold inventory, and supply products in smaller quantities to regional resellers or users. But since then, their customers have demanded relentless improvement in efficiency and reduced costs. To meet increasing demands, the fastener distribution industry has evolved dramatically to refine and extend its capabilities. Now, fastener distributors must provide a more cohesive, streamlined transition of product from supply chain to consumer while still fulfilling their traditional wholesale services.
VMI-Friendly: Your Partner for Vendor-Managed Inventory Programs
Consider us your trusted partner for your Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) Programs! We understand that VMI programs are a huge part of the modern fastener distribution landscape, so we’ve streamlined our operations to be able to meet your most challenging deadlines. As part of a VMI program, fastener distributors often operate on-site at their customers’ facilities to manage, oftentimes, thousands of different SKUs that are in regular rotation. It can be a strenuous endeavor; that’s why many distributors love working with American Belleville to help streamline procurement of products such as Belleville Washers, Disc Springs, and Flange Washers.
We Integrate Seamlessly with Just-In-Time (JIT) Programs
Just-In-Time (JIT) programs have become a key component of supply chain management for many fastener distributors. These cost-saving programs are implemented to keep product moving without building up excess inventory at any given time. Fastener distributors will schedule releases, so that product comes in and goes back out the door, quickly.
By committing long-term up-front, distributors get the best price available while ensuring that we can deliver on a schedule that meets their requirements. Also, it protects against price increases for the entirety of the blanket order term. And we offer to remain flexible on scheduling in case the customer’s usage ends up going up or down during the year. For more details on our VMI or JIT programs, please contact us.
