SUPPLY CHAIN SOLUTIONS WITH SUSTAINABILITY BUILT IN
Did you know that your business will become more sustainable when you partner with us for your industrial inventory management? We develop comprehensive inventory management solutions that maximize your purchasing, production, and material flow, reducing your environmental footprint.
How do we make our customers more sustainable?
Data-driven and Sustainable Systems
With our automated supply solutions, we’re creating the sustainable fastener inventory management of the future. Würth’s Kanban vendor managed inventory systems optimize delivery cycles based on actual needs and consumption, shorten reaction times, and make transportation and logistics more efficient. By utilizing our systems, you can reduce the CO2 emissions of your fastener supply by more than 50 percent.
Additionally, our fully automated industrial vending solutions for MRO and safety supplies reduce product consumption by up to 35%, meaning that 35% less product needs to be created and packaged.
Streamlined and Sustainable Logistics Solutions
When you consolidate your industrial product supply by partnering with us as a single-source supplier, you reduce the emissions produced by product transportation.
Our Kanban racking systems maximize your facilities by saving up to 40% of shelf space, requiring less energy to manage more parts.
Industry-leading and Sustainable Technology
Our industrial 3D printing and digital inventory solutions further reduce transportation needs and energy use by bringing manufacturing into customers’ facilities, eliminating the need to transport prototypes and even fully-functional parts from across the globe.
The 3D printing process is more sustainable than traditional methods of manufacturing. Subtractive manufacturing (such as CNC, die cutting, or other machining processes) removes material to create products, and that waste material is often discarded. In contrast, additive manufacturing prints parts layer-by-layer, using only as much material as is needed to create a part to exact specifications—minimizing waste and material consumption.
Secure and Sustainable Supplier Network
Ensuring that the products we supply meet and exceed your quality standards is our top priority. We have implemented a global network of supplier auditors who systematically and transparently check, audit, and further develop our local suppliers. We base these audits on criteria such as product quality, environmental impact, occupational safety, and compliance with legal and ethical standards.
