Protective Wear Supplies safeguards product availability with Slimstock



 Protective Wear Supplies


Since 1975, Protective Wear Supplies has specialised in personal protective equipment, corporate workwear and cleaning solutions. To stay ahead in the fiercely competitive PPE market, PWS has embarked upon a major supply chain improvement project focused on boosting both efficiency and product availability.


Nigel Keam, purchasing manager at PWS explains: “Slimstock puts you in a position of power, and you can see what is going to happen before it happens - it enables you to be proactive.”


As a family-run operation, PWS has an established reputation for providing customers with an innovative range of quality products at competitive prices. Committed to maintain a 1st class service as the business grows, the PPE specialist needed to take proactive steps to gain greater visibility and control over their inventory management processes.


To help manage the growing complexity of its operation, PWS will implement Slimstock’s inventory optimisation solution, Slim4. Focused on maximising service levels, the inventory optimisation solution will help boost the efficiency of the planning team through providing greater insight across the supply chain.


Martin Montgomery, UBT partner manager at Slimstock goes on to conclude: “Since we first started working with PWS, it was clear that the business is dedicated to offering the best possible service to its customers. As the business embarks upon this supply chain innovation project, we look forward to supporting them on this journey.”
