Job Description

Manufacturing is one of the bright and growing spots in our economy. Our client is a top distributor providing thousands of MRO components into US industry. One of their specialties is industrial metalworking, where they provide everything needed to keep large machining facilities humming safely, effectively and efficiently.

Here is what makes our client different:

  • During the recession they did not lay anyone off and, in fact, during one quarter had a net gain of 14 people
  • Additionally, they bought several small competitors which enabled them to expand their SKUs to over 500,000 (and please note again, because this is so rare – they did not lay anyone off -- including people in the companies they purchased)
  • They bring value-add benefits to their industrial clients:
    • Tool room management
    • Inventory control
    • Just-in-time delivery on 98% of their components
    • Technical support
    • Customized billing
    • …and the list goes on
  • And the evidence is in as illustrated by the fact that their sales were up over 15% just last quarter
