48 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK ARNOLD SUPPLY INC. 67 S. Turnpike Rd, Wallingford, CT 06410 TEL 203-265-7168 FAX 203-265-1032 EMAIL WEB STATE OF THE ART VMI HELPS PUT ARNOLD SUPPLY ON THE MAP Arnold Supply is a one stop shop for supply chain management. They will take inventory, stock bins and replenish hardware and fasteners as customers need them. They also centralize inventory processing with purchasing departments, engineering staff and floor personnel to reduce costs and guarantee delivery. How It Works Arnold Supply’s state-of-the-art VMI program utilizes the most up-to-date technology to take inventory their customers’ hardware and fasteners. When they begin a VMI program, they usually ask for a forecast report or annual usages so that they can accurately price out the necessary quantities. Based on that information, they provide pricing and a suggested minimum and maximum bin quantity to go with each part. Then they create custom bar codes. The labels can be as simple as the one above or they can contain as much information as the customer desires. A qualified Arnold Supply Salesman will arrive at the customer’s facility with an iPad, a wireless scanner and the customized bar codes to place on each bin. Long Record of Exceptional Service During a recent interview, Bill Donahue, Sr., President, said, “Arnold Supply Inc. started in March 1976 on a wing and prayer. In 1978, we moved to a 2,000 square foot warehouse in Wallingford, CT. We now own the 35,000 square foot building and stock it to capacity. We have also expanded and now we have locations in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and Nogales, Arizona.” BUSINESS FOCUS ARTICLE CONTINUED ON PAGE 122
