About PF Markey
PF Markey uses the AutoCrib vending system and our inventory management practices to efficiently run the ongoing process of managing your tooling/MRO needs. We focus on critical areas of cost savings, including:
- Reducing item consumption
- Increasing use of regrinds
- Reducing obsolete inventory
- Reducing carrying costs and inventory
- PO reductions
- Reducing crib trip time
- Reducing or eliminating stock outs
These areas can dramatically affect your bottom line. Price, although part of the equation and often the area that draws the most attention, is actually the least impactful to your bottom line. We use our value-added services to target and implement cost-saving initiatives.
We custom-design systems for every one of our customers. To learn the specific ways we can help your business, call us today so we can get to know each other.
