The added efficiencies associated with a smart approach to procurement can do more than you think.
In addition to helping you optimize your infrastructure, turning your supply chain into a strategic enabler can allow you to cultivate and retain the employees you count on every day.
That’s because a smoother process can make for more engaged employees and across-the-board efficiencies that benefit retention and succession efforts. The resulting positive environment spreads as your associates proceed with a greater sense of investment in customer-facing areas.
Strengthen your process and your culture
Our top‐to‐bottom approach can be infectious. Besides the fact that it can save money, it can also reduce inefficiencies, including loathsome redundancies.
Partnering with Airgas for all your gases, welding and safety products can streamline paperwork, remove the hassle of hunting down vendors and eliminate concerns about product quality discrepancies. And with more than 1,100 nationwide locations and approximately 17,000 associates, we can get the right gases and equipment to you quickly, along with the corresponding expertise.
We give you support that streamlines how to use our products. Besides handling cylinders for you, our hands-on approach is evident in the on-site relationship we build through offering safety training and monitoring.
Applying multiple venues for efficiency:
- Airgas OUTLOOK® Managed Services: Snap your supply chain into shape via a smart, total approach that includes site survey and assessment, transition management, and entry-level or on-site total gas and supplies management.

Enable better customer service
Adding time- and money-saving efficiencies can free up your workforce to concentrate on your operation’s other core areas—namely your customers. We can help transform your supply chain into a strategic enabler that delivers the right products at the right time—building a sense of internal goodwill that your workforce can’t help but pass on to your customers.
Keep the best people
Your supply chain isn’t effective unless it’s sustaining the growth and development of your workforce. Guarding against worst-case procurement scenarios also means avoiding retention and succession problems. We can help your workforce charge ahead by removing morale-zapping redundancies and process flaws. By applying a proactive approach backed by process efficiencies, innovations and the highest safety standards, we can help energize your organizational culture.
