Spares management - a complex issue.

http://www.engineeringmaintenance.info/images/stories/Brammer%20pic.jpgSpares management is a complex issue for manufacturers, almost regardless of the sector in which they are operating. Rapid access to spares is of course vital to maintaining continuity of production and avoiding costly downtime.

However, not only are the required spares often of low value and required infrequently, but the sheer range of components to which a plant needs to have access can be daunting. And, for many, that range of products means dealing with a multitude of suppliers across different product areas – from bearings and mechanical power transmission to hydraulics, pneumatics, tools and personal protective equipment (PPE).

Brammer employs over 2,500 people in more than 300 locations in 16 countries, making them a leading pan- European distributor of bearings, belts & pulleys, chains & sprockets, linear motion, motors, seals, gearboxes, pneumatics, hydraulics, clutches & couplings, tools, maintenance and health & safety
