Maximus Crushing & Screening
One of the many companies benefiting from TR Fastenings is Maximus Crushing & Screening
, an independent, global manufacturer and distributor of mobile crushing and screening equipment for use in a wide range of applications; mining and quarrying, earthmoving, civil contractors, recycling and material handling industries.
Used by customers around the world, Maximus’s crushers and screeners operate in the harshest environments. Priding itself on its excellent build quality, the company required a seamless supply system to ensure production levels and lean manufacturing can be maintained, so turned to TR Fastenings for advice and assistance.
TR Fastenings Belfast was able to oversee a smooth transition to a new, more efficient VMI
(Vendor Managed Inventory) system which includes:
- A twin bin barcoded replenishment system, with ‘free on loan’ racks and bins.
- State-of-the-art bar-coding technology to trigger demand and monitor usage. This usage information is shared with Maximus and is ideal for its engineers and the rationalisation of components.
- Detailed reports from TR Fastenings which provide good-quality management intelligence.
- Delivering only what Maximus requires.
- Eliminating H&S risks of trip hazards. Fasteners must be in the bin not on the floor!
- A dedicated Account Manager.
- Unlimited access to TR’s engineering website: www.trfastenings.com
"It was a pleasure to work with Maximus and we are delighted that their new system has assisted in improving efficiency already,” comments Arlene Martin, Divisional Manager at TR Fastenings Belfast.
