What is VMI?

Automotive fasteners has been providing supply chain management solutions to OEMs and MROs across a variety of industries including automotive, heavy equipment, emergency vehicles, truck/trailer, food processing, industrial, marine life, and leisure medical device, mining, outdoor lighting, petrochemical and more for close to half a century.

A VMI, or vendor managed inventory program from Automotive Fasteners is customized to meet your specific needs. More than supplying parts, your AF representative partners with you to ensure you understand how parts, materials, and delivery options can affect your costs and production. In addition to our lean manufacturing processes, we have also adopted “kaizen” intensive programs, which have been designed specifically to increase cost savings through constant improvement across all areas of management, production and fulfillment. Our goal is to continuously improve our processes and reduce our costs so we can pass the savings on to you.
