Gexpro expertise at work: OEM
Automation, supply chain and uptime breakthroughs
Here’s the next big advance that can make your operations more profitable, smooth-running, sustainable and energy-efficient – and it’s easy. The advance is rethinking how you source and handle electrical components in facilities anywhere on the globe. Gexpro can help you redefine success and maximize value when you stop wasting, waiting and wondering what’s missing. We help OEMs just like you:
• Improve Cash Flow
• Increase Energy Sustainability
• Reduce Labor Costs
• Decrease Component Cost
• Maximize Uptime
We’re not going to reinvent your business. But we are going to replace outdated, inefficient processes with new ideas that meet your true business needs.
Improve Cash Flow
OASIS Insight, Gexpro’s proprietary Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) system does everything you’d expect and more. You have real-time power to manage inventory, maximize turns and understand your material needs. OASIS Insight includes min/max planning, bar code scanning for inventory tracking and extensive reporting.
A customized Just in Time (JIT) program matches inventory flow with your operations. Gexpro’s end-to-end management system makes adjustments for production-level variations and identifies areas for improvement. Our large, local inventories can handle unforeseen demand to keep you up and running.
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.
Increase Energy Sustainability
We can help you do something about the sustainability issues that others just talk about. Gexpro’s proven sustainability programs deliver results through:
• Energy Reduction – strategies and upgrades in lighting, motors/drives, automation and control
• Energy Project Management – applying Gexpro’s full suite of productivity management tools to energy projects
• Energy Production – solar and wind support, from specification to installation
• Recycling – lamps, ballasts and battery recycling, plus strategies for waste reduction
Gexpro’s Energy Solutions team is dedicated to delivering solutions that save. From audits, design and specification to simplified ordering and incentive-program management, Gexpro makes it easier to reduce your energy use. Working together, we can move you to more-energy-efficient lighting, lower-consumption motors and drives, smarter energy management, customized commercial controls and installed solar solutions.
Reduce Labor Costs
Understanding your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) can help you lower real costs. The price you pay for a product is only about 20% of its true cost. The other 80% is a combination of procurement, tech/engineering support, audit, receiving, QC-inspection, warehousing, handling, kitting, parts preparation, and assembly. These are real costs that don’t show up on an invoice but do impact your cost of doing business. Gexpro helps you cut those costs with proven programs including:
• Automated ordering and tracking to save time and reduce error
• Wire and cable services that cut waste and mistakes
• ReadyMade prefab solutions that outsource labor to our lower-cost professionals
• QuickKit pre-packaged parts that speed assembly
• GOcart material carts that arrive at your location fully stocked with products that are unpackaged, properly staged and ready to install
Decrease Component Cost
Gexpro operates in 17 countries. Our sister companies in the Rexel network are local experts in 39 countries. That gives us local resources with access to products anywhere in the world. For cost, delivery or support, we have the contacts for whatever you need, wherever you need it.
