Comprehensive Field Assessments: A Critical Component of Long-Term Success

In today’s interconnected world, interruptions to the supply chain can happen at a moment’s notice.  In order to keep your production levels steady, it’s important that you’re well-equipped to handle any equipment breakdowns.  Having too many spare parts in inventory eats up valuable cash resources and increases storage and management costs. Having too little could lead to a loss of production and sales.  With the proper inventory management, you could effectively double inventory turns with a lowered inventory investment.  Wajax can undertake a thorough assessment of your operations to help ensure you have the optimal level of critical parts in stock for when you need it.
