Eliminate Downtime. Get Control.

Stop Losing Time and Money

Increasing project profits by controlling costs and reducing waste is required and expected in business today. At A&M, we attack the total cost of product ownership by offering customized Managed Inventory Services (MIS). Don't let your workflow be interrupted due to a shortage of parts and tools. Stocked, accessible inventory means control.

Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI)

This service operates as a "Just In Time" product replenishment program to eliminate work stoppage and ensure that you have the products you need, when you need them. Our inventory specialists are on-site at your facility on a scheduled basis to meet all of your stocking and sourcing requirements. We also offer automated storeroom, attendant and allocation solutions for large plants and remote work locations.
