VMI

Martin Fasteners will partner with you and manage your inventory inside your facility. This solution is customized to fit your exact needs. Our typical process is to initially apply 5S methodology to your existing location as well as analyze any available data to determine proper product mix, stocking levels, and frequency of restocks.


VMI

Once we’re in place you can focus on your value stream as Martin ensures you have the components in place when you need them. Our personnel come on site, take inventory, restock, and check in with your employees to make sure that they are getting the service they need. We also provide you with reporting so that you can always track what’s coming in.


KITTING

A key way we help our customers save time and money is in our kitting process. First, because Martin partners with you and understands your business, kits are created in collaboration with your supervisors and engineers to ensure that they’re exactly what is needed. Second, by combining all of the components that you need into one SKU, your ordering, receiving, and processing are simplified. Finally, your cycle time will be reduced because your workers have everything on hand that they need to complete their task.

VENDING

Vending machines are a great way to move parts closer to their usage point while maintaining inventory control. By opting for a vending solution, customers typically see decreased usage resulting from increased accountability that comes from advanced usage tracking. The current stock is visible via a web portal, so not only can it be monitored remotely but we also have the ability to access reporting 24/7.


The machines are customized to your specific needs. Martin reviews usage data and history to determine optimal stocking. Also, while vending items requires either a PIN number or an ID badge, specific products or groups can be set to ensure that they are accessible only by designated employees.


CUSTOMIZED REPORTING/ANALYTICS

We understand that in modern business, capturing the right information is almost as important as producing the right part. If we do not understand what we are doing and are not looking in the right place then it is impossible to manage correctly.


That is why Martin utilizes an advanced reporting tool called MITS to provide insights into each aspect of our business. Everything from usage to fill rates, lead times, or even batch size can be reported both internally and externally so that the best decision possible can be made.

SUB-ASSEMBLY

Cycle time is an important factor in assembly processes, so Martin helps its customers to reduce that time with sub-assembly services. We will source your components, assemble them to your specifications at our facility, and deliver them just-in-time so that you get exactly what you need and your employees can keep moving.
