Keeping Production Running

Having no spare belt for key equipment is at best weak stock control, at worst reckless. Commercial and economic pressures from management and customers to maintain

 production at all costs means the chips are down and the stress is on, thousands of pounds loss per hour focuses the mind, making the difference between daily profit or loss in the manufacturing process.  Wire Belt will ensure that those key belts are in stock or available for same day despatch at all times without the downside of high value stocks.

Wire Belt offers two solutions to solve your stocking requirements;

Consignment Stock

The pressure for efficient and cost effective handling of essential spares for your equipment has resulted in consignment stock becoming the standard approach adopted by many major processors and their suppliers. Consignment stock is ideal for large volume users, it anticipates the need for spares and Wire Belt makes these spares available on site for immediate use.  The first step is to agree the amount of consignment stock for each piece of equipment and is based upon a typical 3 month usage, a consignment agreement created and the stock is delivered to site, only when the stock is used and replaced will a charge be made.
