Supply Chain Management

Lower cost, less inventory, faster response time, flexible product sourcing, heightened availability, competitive lead times, efficient distribution strategies, greater profitability, reduced risk and managed complexity . . . all start with understanding your needs.

At Klein Steel, Supply Chain Management (SCM) includes managing metal sourcing and mill capabilities from raw materials suppliers to finished goods. But that's not all. As a metal service center, Klein Steel deals with steel, stainless and aluminum mills (integrated or non-integrated), specialty and mini-mills, converters and processors and finishing facilities. We handle everything from regional outsourcing partners to international suppliers and global container shipments. Import/export? Not a problem.

How does Klein Steel SCM work? Through a customer-specific approach to supply and demand that relies heavily on:

  • Understanding the logistics and interdependent variables across the entire supply chain including mill runs, international shipping dates, vendor lead times, and more.
  • Providing forecasting and data intelligence.
  • Helping customers with make vs. buy decisions and early supplier involvement.
  • Designing and maintaining a tight supply chain that works for you.
  • Managing supplier performance and monitoring risk.
  • Offering vendor managed inventory, kanban-based releases and just-in-time delivery, if required.
  • Delivering ready-to-fabricate, ready-to-assemble or completely fabricated kits, with custom components, right to your production floor or work site.
