“My main reason for switching to a VMI program was to avoid stock-outs. I have so many things to deal with on a daily basis. I don’t want to hear that I can’t get the parts I need. Hodell-Natco is so good at managing our inventory. We use 1000s of SKUS of hardware and I never have to worry about stock outs. When we launched the VMI program, Hodell-Natco analyzed our usage data, calculated ideal bin sizes, and determined the most efficient bin locations on our plant floor. Their VMI expert is here weekly and we love him! We operate on a JIT (Just-in-Time) inventory system. No parts go unused for over 3-4 days. Hodell-Natco does an awesome job of making sure we do not carry excess inventory. This maximizes space on our shop floor, keeps our costs down and helps us to be extremely efficient.”
