When it comes to accomplishing your specific project, you need multiple materials that arrive at the same time, in the same place, regularly. Efficiency is your best friend, and the ordering process should be easy.
That’s why kitting is crucial.
Kitting is a service that involves staging, containing and delivering all material as components for your specific job, task or part number in a clearly identifiable package. You order one part number, receive one part number, and store one part number. It’s that simple.
“How many times have you started a project to find out only 10 of your 11 items were delivered, causing a project delay?” says Bruce Penas, Border States industrial market director. “Border States is an industry leader in kitting, which is a service that makes a huge difference in your project efficiency.”
Consistent, repeated bills of material
The consistent bills of material offered through kitting reduce rework and job cost overruns, while also helping you simplify your record keeping. It’s all about giving you peace of mind.
Affordable handling and packaging
Border States provides single kits specifically for your project to help lower processing costs. Single kits also reduce tracking, handling, ordering, receiving, checkout and billing process time.
That’s time and money you save when you don’t have to order, track and receive multiple separate items.
Increased crew productivity
When it comes to pulling and preparing material for your specific job, kitting leads to increased productivity for your crew. Kitted materials are delivered to your job site as needed, and are as close to a key work area as possible.
- Kitting ensures all your parts are delivered. It’s often a much better option than ordering separately, which runs the possibility of not all materials arriving at the same time.
- Kitting frees up warehouse space for other revenue-building activities.
- Your ordering process is easier and faster because you’re able to order one line item and receive complete bill of material by using a unique customer number.
