Plymovent has been working on improving its supply chain for almost six quarters. The main reason being faster delivery times, to meet the customer demands of today.
One European supply chain centre
All European assembly activities of the business unit Industrial Products moved to the main manufacturing facility of Plymovent in Alkmaar, the Netherlands. Handling all products in one place contributes not only to our quality process, it also enables us to work more efficient. As Plymovent is a dedicated certified ISO partner, quality control processes are a very important part of our daily working activities.
One European distribution centre
To ensure faster delivery times in Europe we opened a distribution centre in Doesburg, the Netherlands. This distribution centre keeps the core products of Plymovent’s Industrial Products in stock. Supplying from stock gives Plymovent the opportunity to deliver its source extraction –mainly plug & play products– quickly to authorised distributors and end-users.
With these faster delivery times, the improved quality control process and a more flexible way of working Plymovent is looking forward to coming fall/winter. Huib van den Berg, Vice President Business Unit Industrial Products explains: “The restructuring project of our supply chain came with many challenges. Unfortunately some resulted in longer delivery times, which is extremely unpleasant for our distributors and customers. We are very glad that this is all behind us now, and are therefore looking forward to guarantee faster delivery times –thus meeting the demands of our customers– as we should!”
