VBH Technologies provides comprehensive tailored solutions to customers' requirements for Parker hose, hose assemblies, hydraulic adaptors, Parker fittings and other critical products. Our Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) Program is one of the industry's most effective tools for JIT delivery. It can dramatically reduce purchasing and re-supply costs, eliminate stock-outs, and allow customers to be more efficient and profitable by not tie-ing up cash in excess inventory.
Customers place blanket orders covering their requirements for 24-30 months, with release dates specified for each live part in the program. New and change orders are placed electronically, weekly, or bi-weekly, saving paper and time. VBH Technologies' bar coding system provides greatest control over the assembly of orders, and quality monitoring.
Another aspect of vendor managed inventory is our 3rd party logistics management capability. Typically, a customer wants to buy components off-shore, but finds that container minimums and waiting times erase potential cost advantages. By consolidating the requirements of several projects or companies, VBH Technologies allows customers to benefit from the reduced component pricing of the off-shore manufacturer, without the downside difficulties - and risks.
Kitted Parker hoses help control the cost of ordering and managing a large hose inventory. They also reduce material handling, and the cost of dunnage. VBH Technologies kitted Parker hydraulic hoses are offered in a broad range of sizes and configurations custom to the user. Kitted hoses have unique, individual product codes. Reserve stocks are maintained for emergencies.
