MRO procurement

MRO procurement

Uniform purchasing policy

MRO procurement, or supplies for maintenance, repair and operations, is often run separately from the purchasing department because of the very technical nature of the goods. This decentralization can limit your opportunities for administrative optimization and cost savings. An assessment of your MRO procurement processes can uncover the most promising opportunities.

Predictive maintenance: increased uptime

Our analysis of your MRO procurement looks at more than just your purchases. It also assesses your maintenance policy. Exceptions aside, we will compare your policy with industry best practices for predictive maintenance. Not only will a predictive maintenance approach reduce your purchase costs, but it will also help plan interventions better and increase the uptime of your production systems.

Top quality at lower prices

MRO products are the exception to traditional purchase analyses because they are commodities with a relatively high strategic value and a tangible risk. That’s why we have volume agreements with dozens of established suppliers of MRO products, such as Allen-Bradley, ABB, Emerson, Festo, Gates, Pepperl+Fuchs, Rexroth, SKF, Weidmüller and many more. They guarantee top quality at competitive prices.

Fast return on investment

Our technically experienced procurement engineers perform MRO procurement optimizations on a project basis, with a lead time of two to three months, depending on the complexity of your production systems. The typical return on investment is less than half a year. A likely follow-up is the complete outsourcing of your MRO procurement, supply chain and warehousing based on an integrated supply model.
