Gap Partners’ 2013 Supplier of the Year is Phoenix Metals in Norcross, GA. Phoenix was selected in part because of its extraordinary quality -- 98% OTIF (on-time and in full) with zero defects, and all documentation for orders, deliveries, material certifications and invoices is clear and concise.
Phoenix Metals has further shown its mettle with excellent delivery service. It has delivered next day on 98% of orders placed and 100% of the time on promised dates. These feats are possible because of the company’s Vendor Managed Inventory kanban, a system they have in place to maintain a given quantity on hand at all times for specified material.
“Gap Partners has counted on Phoenix metals for 20 years,” said Mary Wilmot, Purchasing Agent for Gap Partners. “They meet all our metal needs and their quick turnaround is exceptional.”
