Vendor Managed Inventory Programs Offered by French Gerleman

When it comes to inventory, there is a fine line between being adequately stocked, but not overstocked or running out of products. To reduce business costs and overflow of products, it’s important to properly manage your inventory to save time and money. That’s where Stock Optimization Programs (SOP) and Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) can help! We can keep your bins stocked, which will reduce costs and facilitate process efficiencies, thereby managing working capital and creating a streamlined plan for success.

We’ve discussed our French Gerleman SOP program in a past post, so you know the benefits to these programs. How do you get started and what does it entail? Watch the video below in which Sean Nolan, VP of Market Development, and Chris Fine, Director of Marketing, discuss the process and what you need to know.

What’s involved in setting up a VMI program?
The setup process might sound complicated, but it’s pretty straightforward. The most important thing is data cleaning. This involves us taking a look at the current information customers have on hand. This might be looking at reporting or speaking with them about what kinds of things they are currently keeping in stock. The thing we hear a lot is that our customers don’t have their arms around this information, and that’s okay! That’s where we come in and can help to create a plan.

How does a customer get started in setting up a program like this?
The first step would be to call your French Gerleman Account Manager to let them know you’re interested. From there, we will bring in a team of folks that will help you work through:

  • What do you currently have in stock today?
  • What do you NEED to have in stock today?
  • What’s moves quickly, what is slow moving and what is critical.
  • What items are dead, what items do you not really need?

We will work with our customers to make sure that we have the right level of inventory on hand, what items we need to have backed up at French Gerleman, and what items we can eliminate altogether. This is something we will discuss together, so don’t feel overwhelmed!

Once we get that completed and items determined, we have created a stock level optimization plan that we have and can use/implement moving forward. This of course can change as business progresses, so it is in no way set in stone, but the plan is put together and we will work that plan together as we move forward.

We focus on many categories with our SOP program, including:

  • Electrical
  • Safety
  • Automation
  • Fastener
  • Power transmission
  • Lube and spray
  • Datacom

If you’re interested in setting up a Vendor Managed Inventory program, contact your French Gerleman Account Manager today! We look forward to working with you to create a plan to keep your company organized, save you time and money and of course, keep your inventory organized!

Product Spotlight: Mersen Surge Protection

Did you know that power related fluctuations cost US companies more than $80 billion a year? Down machines cost you money, time and resources. Instead of spending thousands of dollars to fix or repair your expensive machinery, for a minimal investment, you can protect your sensitive equipment, or your entire facility, from electrical surges.

Most surge spikes occur from within a customer’s own facility. Nearly 80% of all surge problems are directly attributed to power disturbances from a facility’s own equipment. So who is at risk for a surge spike? If you have a facility with motors that are stopping and starting, load panels being turned on and off on a regular basis and other potential power disturbances, then you are at risk for damage.

What types of damage can a surge cause to a facility? Can it really be that bad? The short answer is YES and can be described by the 3-Ds.

  • Disruptive: A surge enters an electronic component, which then in turn, interprets the valid logic command. The result is a system lock-up, machine malfunction, leading to faulty output or corrupted files.
  • Dissipative: This is a repetitive pulsing of short duration energy, which results in long-term machine or system degradation, leading to system replacement sooner.
  • Destructive: This is caused by a high-level energy surge that immediately results in equipment failure, or complete destruction.

Protecting your equipment, and facility, is more important now than ever. At French Gerleman, we carry the Mersen Series SPD units: STXH, STXR, STXP and STXT. Here’s a description of each and how they can help you.

LED Lighting Retrofit: Your Path to Savings

Is your company spending more on lighting than it needs to—both in terms of energy and maintenance?  If so, it’s time to consider retrofitting your lighting to LED and put more of your profits back where they belong—in your business.

Retrofitting is a popular topic, particularly among our commercial and industrial end user customers. Converting existing fixtures to LED, either through the swapping of lamps or a fixture retrofit, is a way to transition to LED technology without the full financial investment of purchasing and installing new fixtures.

The demand is strong, and there are many manufacturers offering a cost-effective retrofit solution for just about any existing fixture.  Here are some options to consider:

Step into LED with a lamp retrofit.

The most economical move into LED technology is to swap your current lamps from conventional light sources to LED.  LED lamps can improve ambiance, energy efficiency and reduce maintenance.

  • Philips InstantFit is a truly compatible plug and play LED tube lamp that performs as expected, so you don’t have to go back and waste time and money redoing a job, and can instead focus on growing your business. Available in a variety of sizes and wattages, popular types include T8, 4-Pin Long Compact, U-Bent T8, and 4-Pin Plug-in.
  • Transform your environment while reducing lighting-related energy costs with Philips “Screw-in” LED lamps. The line includes popular A-type, candle, globe, MR16 and PAR lamps – all with smooth dimming technology.

Get rid of your florescent strip fixtures.

Linear fluorescent technology represents an estimated 80% of the installed equipment and 72% of total annual energy consumption for commercial lighting making it the perfect candidate to upgrade to LED with a retrofit. Universal Lighting Technologies’ EVERLINE® LED Retrofit Kit simplifies the transition from fluorescent to LED.  The EVERLINE® Retrofit Kit converts 2’, 4’ or 8’ fixtures to LED lighting.  The kits include everything needed for simple installation and are available in 2,300 lumens to 6,000 lumens with an 82 CRI and CCTs of 3500K, 4000K and 5000K.

Troffer Retrofit Kits

Are you looking for an affordable way to use LED lighting to cut back on energy costs, but don’t have a huge budget? Upgrading your traditional fluorescent in-grid ceiling troffers may be easier than you think.

    • The Universal Lighting Technologies LED General Purpose Fixture is a recessed prismatic LED Luminaire. Designed for replacement of fluorescent troffer and parabolic style luminaires. The GPA Series is installer friendly and comes in standard sizes for grid lay-in applications. Designed as an economical option for lighting indoor spaces with T-Grid ceilings, its high efficacy and excellent uniformity make it a great choice for most office and classroom environments.
    • Lithonia Lighting’s BLT Relight Series provides quick, easy installation into most
      existing luminaires. It provides look, feel and performance of a full fixture replacement at a fraction of the cost – reducing installation cost and materials. The BLTR series also provides control options to further enhance your space.

Got illuminated signs? Upgrade their lighting.

Now signs can be seamlessly converted from existing fluorescent to LED technology. Universal Lighting Technologies’ EVERLINE® LED Sign Tubes are an LED outdoor replacement solution for T12HO or T8HO lit signs. Designed for fast and easy installation, the Sign Tube uses the existing RDC sockets with minimal modification. It features 90° adjustable RDC style endcaps for correct lamp orientation in vertical or horizontal installations, regardless of how the socket was originally installed.

Think “outside” for even more retrofit opportunities.

Retrofits aren’t just for indoor applications. The Lithonia Lighting KADRD-LED retrofits any existing 100 – 400W metal halide or high pressure sodium KAD into a high-performance LED luminaire, while realizing typical energy savings up to 70% with expected service life up to 100,000 hours. The KADRD-LED retrofit door simply replaces the existing KAD door containing the glass lens and installs in minutes.  Part of the Contour® Series luminaires, the KADRD offers traditional square dayforms with softened edges for a versatile look that complements many applications.

Hazardous locations deserve LEDs, too.

It’s important for hazardous (classified) work sites to be equipped with proper lighting for their classification. Ratings are used by engineers and architects to determine where specific fixtures should be used under the specific conditions. Currently, there are a handful of classifications for explosion-proof LED lighting.

Dialight offers fixtures for installation and use in hazardous (classified) locations including: Class I, Divisions 1 and 2, Groups A, B, C, and D; Class II, Division 1, Groups E, F, and G; Class II, Division 2, Groups F and G; and Class III, Divisions 1 and 2, in accordance with the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70.  Their Vigilant Industrial Solutions and SafeSite Hazardous Area Solutions offer a variety of LED retrofit and replacement products for classified spaces.

Start on your path to savings today! With LEDs you use up to 90% less energy than traditional sources and the longer lifespan reduces maintenance needs – saving you both time and money.  In addition, you may be able to take advantage of utility incentives available in most areas by retrofitting your facility’s lighting with LED.

Along with our manufacturer partners, French Gerleman can help you improve your facility with solutions to improve lighting efficiency and save on annual utility expenses.  Our lighting team is well versed in LED lighting products for use in commercial and industrial facilities.

Save Time, Space and Lower Installed Cost with Eaton’s B-Line Series 4Dimension Strut System

We have covered Eaton’s B-Line series 4Dimension™ strut system in a past blog, introducing you to this innovative new approach to strut supports. But did you know 4Dimension strut can save you time, space and lower installed cost on MEP support applications? We’re going to take a closer look at the 4Dimension strut system and how it can help your business improve flexibility, maximize space and lower installed cost of supports in mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) facility-subsystems.

Some of the biggest challenges that face owners, designers and installers today are supporting systems. There are several factors that impact job installation time, cost and complexity:

    1. Space limitations and structural obstructions
      The 4Dimension strut provides solutions to solve space limitations and structural obstructions, making those limitations of the past a distant memory. The multi-sided functionality drives flexibility and space saving opportunities. By using a 4Dimension strut as a substitute for traditional back-to-back strut, the overall height of the channel is reduced. The 4Dimension strut dove-tail bar creates an option to build instant back-to-back or side-by-side, meaning that the options are virtually limitless. Who doesn’t like the sound of that?

 

    1. Frequency of supports and load
      The multi-sided 4Dimension strut offers the flexibility of a back-to-back system with the strength and cost similar to a single sided traditional strut system. The user now has the ability to mount items over and under the channel, therefore reducing the length of the strut required. It also has a higher strength to weight ratio than traditional struts.

 

    1. Product selection
      4Dimension strut is available in pre-galvanized, hot galvanized dip, Dura Green™, stainless steel 304 and 316. The 4Dimension strut system works with 2 1/2″ diameter pipe and smaller, which is up to 80% of pipe installed in a commercial structure. Even better, it is compatible with up to 90% of current traditional strut fittings.

 

  1. Labor Costs
    The 4Dimension strut includes innovative trapeze hanger designs that allows for quicker installation and labor savings. The Flip Clip hanger reduces the number of components to install from nine components down to five. The 4Dimension strut system turn and lock hanger reduces the total number of components from nine down to three. The system design allows for options to be pre-fabricated, which can be easier to lift and secure and help speed installation. And, the 4Dimension strut system has up to a 10x faster cutting speed due to material thickness.

To give you a more visual, real life example of the savings with 4Dimension strut, here are two case studies of traditional struts vs. Eaton’s B-Line series 4Dimension strut 4D22 and 4D21.

b-line-case-studies

With the 4Dimension strut from Eaton, you now have the product that will help minimize total installed costs which helps you to be more competitive and profitable! Who wouldn’t want that? To learn more about these case studies, you can download the white paper from Eaton HERE.
