Smart Buying


In fleet-based services, it’s not just about getting a lower price point.

Doing so might help your bottom line in the short term, but long-term solutions require a better strategy. You need a supplier that understands your production processes and has the applications, supply chain and expertise to help you shorten fleet repair and production schedules.

 

Go much farther

We provide supply-chain value beyond price.

Our supply-chain and applications expertise help you implement a well-informed procurement strategy and a structured buying agreement that offer more than SKU management and pricing. We can help you:

  • Identify and implement ways to conserve to reduce overall spend
  • Better manage inventories to minimize costs and lower complexity
  • Reduce gas consumption and cylinder balances for less waste

For us, it’s not just about supplying you with what you need, but helping you use it more efficiently. From turnaround planning to production, we can help you improve your processes, shorten repair times and manufacture new fleet components faster. We can also assist you with regulatory compliance, emissions monitoring and reducing your environmental impact.

It’s all part of our analytical, creative approach to your supply chain.

 

Be resourceful

We’re committed to adding more value to your supply chain. More simplicity. More transparency. And more standardization.

As one of the nation's leading single-source suppliers of all things gases, welding and safety, we can also help improve your organization on many levels, including:

  • Consolidating business spending
  • Inventory optimization
  • Lowering consumable usage
  • Boosting welding process efficiency
  • Assistance with regulatory compliance and safety standards

Managing multiple suppliers distracts you from core tasks, complicates your supply chain and leads to fragmentation. Acting as a single point of accountability, we help simplify and standardize your operation by providing:

  • Robust metrics
  • Key performance indicators
  • Superior gas blends
  • Application expertise
  • Process analysis and training

 

Where other suppliers limit their recommendations to proprietary offerings, we provide unbiased opinions on an unrivaled range of products and services. Whether you have welding stations or automated systems, we offer objective recommendations based on years of expertise in the following:

  • Process evaluations
  • Equipment sourcing
  • Installation and training
  • Ongoing service
