The trend is evident. Apart from cutting costs in the supply chain, a majority of customers within the industrial segment are positive to one-stop-shopping. This assumption was proven to be correct in a customer survey conducted by AxIndusties during 2009.
Sandvik Materials Technology is no exception. When AxIndustries offered an overall solution with a wider assortment of spares than the competitors, leading to significant cost savings, it was an open-and-shut case. The combined forces of Nomo Kullager and Jens S made the deal possible and marks the beginning of many similar cooperations to come.
It is not the first cooperation with Sandvik, but this deal is the first of its kind for AxIndustries. Through Nomo Kullager, Sandvik Materials Technology has access to a broad range of industrial bearings and gaskets, and Jens S can provide all kinds of transmission systems. Cost-cutting will be accomplished over time, focussing on three main areas: product assortment, competence and process optimisation. AxIndustries’ extensive technical expertise is another important benefit and the offer involves the training of Sandvik’s employees, for example in bearings technology, chain and belt drives, couplings, gearboxes, engines and hydraulic gaskets.
