Gexpro expertise at work: Automotive
Driving Automotive Energy Savings
Are you making the most of the recovery?
The automotive industry is on the rebound. As production picks up, Gexpro can help you control energy costs, increase manufacturing productivity and improve working conditions that affect product quality. So the ways you use electricity and manage electrical materials can contribute to maximizing the profitability and productivity of your growth.
Successful automotive companies aren’t operating the way they used to. And neither is Gexpro. Our automotive business model increases turns, reduces waste and can take an active role in the way you run your business. We’re not just supplying parts, we’re collaborating with automotive customers throughout their organizations to uncover new ways to reduce costs, save energy, improve quality and rethink how we build things – together.
Gexpro’s proven VMI model keeps things moving by delivering everything you need and nothing you don’t. Our robust, dynamic and transparent Inventory Management software, OASIS Insight, shows you precisely where you stand, your history and your projections. If you prefer a Customer Managed Inventory model, OASIS Insight can do that too.
Warranty Repair Administration
It’s not easy tracking and administering product warranties to capture the value that is rightfully yours. So Gexpro does it for you. If something breaks, we manage the replacement or repair from the manufacturer. So you don’t pay for new parts and repairs that someone else should.
Improve Plant Performance
The Automotive team is just that: an AUTOMOTIVE team, with automotive expertise. We can work with your engineering and facilities staff to recommend and implement improvements like:
• Lighting upgrades that cut costs and increase productivity
• Energy retrofits for outdated motors and drives
• Automation and control upgrades that boost productivity
• Ideas and solutions that extend the life of installed assets and delay capital costs
Excess and Obsolete Inventory Reduction
If you don’t need it, don’t stock it. Gexpro analyzes your materials usage and shows you where to improve. We can reduce the number of SKUs, standardize parts and eliminate duplication to lower inventory costs.
Thanks to decades of parts purchasing, new product introductions and personnel changes, most automotive companies’ information systems are filled with redundant, conflicting and unnecessary data. Gexpro’s data-cleansing team works with you, our manufacturers contacts and our proprietary data-cleansing tool to clean up your data. So you reduce mistakes and eliminate unnecessary costs.
