Efficient supply management adds value far beyond the storeroom. With ERIKS know-how, efficiency improvements to your indirect supply chain and parts management can lead to operational efficiencies, which in turn not only enhance productivity but also deliver real cost savings throughout the enterprise.
UK industry invests millions every year on indirect stock for its production processes, from hand tools through to hydraulic motors, inverters and motors.
