Established in 1963, OTC Industrial Technologies is one of the largest industrial distributors & service providers in the United States. We're committed to seeing industrial operations advance through expert technical solutions & unmatched support using our years of experience.

As a manufacturer, do you ever find yourself trying to balance inventory, equipment, and supplies for the needs of production? If so, then you know there’s never enough money or space!

New call-to-action

Often, manufacturers stack critical replacement parts, filling space to the rafters, to avoid delays and backorders. This leads to less floor space, and it risks parts and product damage. The lack of floor space and inadvertent damage is a huge unseen cost that hurts profit! But what’s the alternative? A shutdown and work stoppage are even worse on your bottom line and can hurt team morale.

A Solution to Replacement Parts and Products

As a manufacturer, can you afford to spend time ordering replacement parts, rearranging the warehouse for those parts, putting out fires, and absorbing enormous, expedited shipping fees simply to ensure uptime for production?

If you answered honestly, you probably admitted, “I don’t have enough time to think about any of that, let alone actually do those things.” Luckily, there is a solution.

Working with OTC as a trusted partner, you’ll find we have, stocked conveniently nearby, the high-use supplies to keep you running. OTC’s network of distribution warehouses strategically stocks the products you’ll need to minimize downtime. In addition, working with our product experts on activities and efficient, cost-effective, repeatable processes will help ensure uptime. You’ll have state-of-the-art, proven solutions to the challenges and issues that plague production.

An Efficient Solution to Filter Inventory

Logistically, filters can be a nightmare; they’re bulky and big, they take up an enormous amount of space, and have unusual sizes and weights.

When you work with OTC, you can design a just-in-time (JIT) schedule that ensures you have filters when you need them, rather than paying for and storing extra filters. The difference will save space, time, and money.

For manufacturers, it’s a solution that means:

  • More warehouse space for production.
  • More time to focus on higher-priority work.
  • Less time handling basic maintenance.
  • Less cash tied up in replacement parts.

What could these changes do for your business? How would they improve your day?

Working with OTC as a trusted partner, you can take back space in your building and time in your day. You can join forces with a partner as passionate about your success as you are. Our expertise and support can make production at your facility more efficient and less costly.
