New supplier’s location at UniCarriers Americas’ headquarters will offer shorter lead times and less inventory.
CHICAGO – March 2017 – UniCarriers Americas Corporation (UCA) announced that one of its suppliers has invested in the UCA relationship by opening operations at the UCA Marengo headquarters. DAVCO Fastener Company supplies hardware and aftermarket parts. They are the third supplier to open local operations specific to UCA, which illustrates that suppliers value their business partnership with UCA.
“Each supplier has invested incremental dollars to be on, or near, UCA’s campus” said Harumi Sheedy, director of UCA supply chain management.
With the addition of DAVCO as an exclusive supplier, UCA has reduced its number of hardware suppliers from five to one. This provides UCA, dealers, and end customers with multiple benefits, such as: shorter lead times, less inventory and stronger customer service.
“UniCarriers Americas is proud to add DAVCO to our growing list of suppliers who believe in UCA’s operations and its future,” said John Arnold, senior director of UCA supply chain management. “DAVCO came to Marengo to better support UCA manufacturing, which not only benefits UCA, but its growing network of dealers and end-users.”
