Manufacturing Industry

We’ve work closely with manufacturers right from the early years and have an indepth understanding of what’s required. We have relationships with the top suppliers to the industry and our low pricing reflects the total expenditure through The Buying Group.

Unique requirements

Having your production line go down due to late parts delivery, or having the incorrect parts delivered can cost your business many thousands of dollars in lost production time.

Suppliers must meet your requirements to have critical items available at extremely short notice. This impacts what products you can use and whether the supplier can comply with your delivery requirements. There’s no point in saving 20% on an alternative product if you can’t get it when you need it. Over the years, we have worked with our suppliers to meet demanding service levels and ensure continuity of supply. And at the same time, we have negotiated significant discounts through the combined purchases of our entire member base, notably better than what our members can achieve on their own.
