Procurement Advisors provides every participating Member company, irrespective of size, with the leveraged buying power of a $745+ million purchaser in a fragmented industry, while maintaining the ability to customize solutions to meet the requirements of each individual member. With over 520 members in multiple, diverse market segments, PA can support virtually any industry in North America – we are industry agnostic.
PA has three primary MRO contracts in North America that cover the full spectrum of traditional MRO requirements:
PA offers the full range of inventory management programs through these suppliers –from simple bin replenishment and bar coding programs to vendor-managed inventories...
PA has MRO offerings in the USA, Mexico, Canada, China, the UK and Ireland and beginning in late 2016 in selected European locations, as well as the ability to support Latin America and other locations through a fully developed export program.
Our MRO contracts typically deliver double-digit savings to our members.
PA has a guaranteed savings contract with The Fastenal Corporation for production fasteners, OEM parts and direct materials (parts-to-print). This offering includes specialized custom products bulk-produced to Members’ specifications as well as bulk quantities of production fasteners and hardware used in the assembly of manufactured products. Parts and components purchased through this program and used in the manufacture of end products qualify for advantaged pricing and expanded service offerings under this PA program.
In the Summer of 2014, PA began the sourcing of corrugated and other packaging materials in response to our Members’ requests that we explore creating leveragable scale for companies with highly fragmented or geographically scattered requirements. Using our network of national and regional providers, PA consistently saves participating member companies 10-15% on their packaging spend, including the sourcing of ancillary packaging supplies like tape, stretch film, strapping & banding, and shipping supplies. Now servicing the packaging needs of more than 300 sites through a national network of 20+ producers and distributors, PA is able to bundle Member spend to create attractive bid packages for even the smallest locations.
For those Member companies that maintain any kind of rolling stock within their programs (including trucks, trailers, tractors, fork trucks, and golf carts as well as anything else that has wheels and a motor), the PA offering includes comprehensive inventory management as well as superior pricing and service for the category. Both programs have guaranteed savings for the participating Member companies.
These offerings include the ability to support the full spectrum of metal working, abrasives, polishing, grinding and cutting tool requirements for those Members who require this category of supply, with full access to all of the leading brands within the category as well as the best-in-class technical resources of our partner supplier in this highly specialized category.
