Tube Fabrication Vendor Reduction Initiative

At Sanborn Tube Sales of Wisconsin, Inc. we pride ourselves on providing creative ideas and custom solutions to our customers' supply chain challenges. The tube fabrication reduction initiative began as an effort to supply better raw material to our clients. While we were consulting with a customer in the hydraulic fluid assembly industry, it quickly became apparent that we could save them considerable time and money by providing the materials complete to print. In addition, it also allowed our customer to complete an entire job with a single purchase order. This highly effective program combines the management of raw material purchase, the fabrication process, finished goods inventory, and the delivery schedule. We were able to eliminate five vendors for this customer and added an inventory management program as part of the completed part package, streamlining and economizing our client's workflow.
