Integration it is what we call our “Fourth Product” at Gopher Industrial. Our tier one level consists of three major product categories which are hoses, welding products, and safety solutions. Each of these product groups are highly technical in application and require a significant amount of service to support them. Integration is all those other product groups you need to complete the job. They include mill supplies, janitorial products, industrial lubricants, fasteners, pipe fitting and valves, material handling, power and pneumatic tools, industrial equipment, sand blasting supplies, hand tools, and so much more. Typically, you would need to go to multiple distributors to source all these products but not when you partner with Gopher Industrial. We position you with a solution to truly “Integrate” your supply chain by offering premium industrial brands in each one of these categories.
By providing so many industrial solutions it allows your organization the ability to consolidate spend, improve your buying position by leveraging invested dollars, eliminate transactional cost, and improve profitability. Normally a facility would go to six different sources approximately fifty weeks out of the year to purchase products to support operations and production a few times a week. That volume adds up to at least 936 transactions a year. Every transaction cost your company significant dollars over the year. In fact, according to the Institute of Supply Management (ISM) each transaction is estimated to cost $100 per transaction (a conservative figure). For one location that is $93,600 per year. Multiple that times 10 facilities it’s $936,000 per year in expenses. However, if you consolidated those transactions to Gopher Industrial each week then that is approximately 156 transactions per year at an annual cost of $15,600. That is a $78,000 annual savings and for ten facilities it is a $780,000 savings!
