If you ask most people to picture a maintenance environment, the first image that comes to mind probably isn’t a pretty one: dirt, grime, dust and piles of disorganized clutter.
Of course, a shop in that condition isn’t good for health, safety, productivity or your bottom line.
In a recent survey of more than 350 Kimball Midwest customers, more than half named organization as one of the three aspects of their shop they most like to see optimized.
That’s why shop organization is an important part of the Kimball Midwest Experience.
Our sales representatives are solutions experts who have the knowledge and experience to help you get and stay organized. They serve as an extra set of hands for each customer, labeling, organizing, putting products away and cleaning storage equipment. This bolsters your operation’s productivity and efficiency, allowing you to focus on core business concerns rather than squandering time managing inventory.
Our reps are key to our approach to Vendor Managed Inventory. Our efforts are designed to eliminate obsolete inventory, standardize product, set appropriate inventory levels and enhance efficiencies. This starts with getting to know each customer and their requirements. Your shop is unique, so we never push cookie cutter solutions. Instead, we offer a tailored methodology to meet your needs.
Our team works closely with you to ensure you have the quality parts you need when and where you need them. They visit your location when you want them to, meet with your team members and effectively manage inventory, avoiding both overstock and understock problems.
This is all part of our Materials Management System, which manages your maintenance parts inventory while controlling costs. It organizes your inventory for faster, easier access, keeps it organized and eliminates the hidden costs of disorderly inventory, equipment downtime, restocking time, running to the store to get items, dealing with multiple vendors, issuing purchase orders, receiving orders, emergency pick-ups and more.
With dozens of storage options, including bins, stands, racks, drawers and more, we’re sure to have the right equipment for your needs.
Wonder what your shop could look like? Our experts provide detailed CAD drawing shop layouts showcasing a single setup, a wall of storage equipment or an entire shop makeover. In the hands of our sales representatives, this technology gives a unique window into the new, improved version of your shop.
Superior organization and personal service are just part of our suite of value-added services that can help your operation shine.
