MRO or Maintenance, Repair and Operations Supplies are Becoming the “Unsung Heroes” of AFT Fastener’s Product Line-Up

Share Article

MRO supplies are the “behind the scenes” heroes of modern production facilities. Most attention is placed upon the final product; however, without MRO supplies like safety equipment, repair tools, lubricants, compressors and pumps then the final products would never make it to market. AFT Fasteners is now offering a complete line of MRO supplies from vendors such as 3M, Dewalt, MCR Safety, Greenlee, Dixon, Precision Brand, Kimberly Clark and many more.

"Our goal is to provide solutions in availability and 'speed of delivery'. These are the most sought after requirements when purchasing MRO" -- Johnny Rose, AFT President

Maintenance, Repair, Operations (MRO) items are supplies consumed in the production process but which do not either become part of the end product or are not central to the firm's output. MRO items include consumables, industrial equipment, plant upkeep supplies and even computer equipment. These types of items range from safety equipment, cleaning materials, laboratory and office supplies, compressors, pumps, valves, gaskets, lubricants, repair tools, and even computer equipment and supplies.

The economics of ordering MRO materials and the decisions on how to save money by consolidating the vendors involved in this order process is an ongoing science. For 2012, AFT Fasteners has dedicated copious resources to the science of saving businesses money. By consolidating the MRO shopping process into a “One Stop Shop”, AFT Fasteners has allowed MRO purchasers to save time. The goal is to provide the most comprehensive vendor line-up in the world of MRO supplies. There are numerous factors in deciding upon an MRO provider and one of the most critical is the availability of products and the “speed of delivery”.

Availability and “speed of delivery” are greatly increased by AFT Fastener’s ability to drop ship items from 19 locations in the United States. Just a few of these new locations for 2012 include Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Grand Rapids, Harrisburg, Houston, Los Angeles, St. Paul, Orlando, Pittsburgh and Portland. These warehouses contain over 60,000 individual SKU items for maximum availability and rapid delivery. Now you can order an item from your location and not worry about it being organized and shipped from across the United States. These efficient and clean warehouses offer JIT ordering and help keep your company’s inventory right where it needs to be.

As the new year progresses AFT Fasteners will be analyzing companies’ needs and what items they order to make sure that the most popular MRO and Safety Supply items are maintained for production and manufacturing needs. AFT Fasteners is a global provider for fasteners, metal plating, industrial components, petrochemical hardware, kitting and warehousing services.
