Focus on the job, not the materials for the job

When you use VMI, your team can spend more time focusing on the job instead of checking inventory, shopping, negotiating, and coordinating multiple deliveries.

On your jobsite, at the warehouse or factory

VMI is available wherever you’re working. We offer different material handling options whatever your facility or job requires.

Dedicated VMI Specialists

A dedicated VMI specialist will become part of your team. Your specialist will manage inventory multiple times a week, help with material layout and shelving, and assist with any changes to your VMI.
