Suppliers everywhere are faced with unprecedented global supply chain challenges resulting in significant product delays. In any business, these challenges often stem from labor, manufacturing, shipping, and productivity issues and lead to increased raw material costs and the inability to finish products or ship them to those who need them. In this three-part series, you’ll learn how Tyndale minimizes the impact of supply chain challenges by investing in our inventory, retaining and growing our own workforce, and preparing for future economic uncertainty.
Arc-rated and flame resistant (AR / FR) clothing and PPE suppliers have not been immune to supply chain disruptions leading to insufficient inventory, but some suppliers have fared better than others. Fortunately, you can choose to partner with Tyndale, a financially stable AR / FR clothing supplier that has taken strategic steps to minimize the impacts of these challenges on the companies and wearers we serve. In this post and in the video below, we share why having inventory is so crucial – learn more from Tyndale’s VP of Technical, Scott Margolin:
Why is having on-hand inventory so important?
Despite global supply chain challenges, Tyndale has been remarkably resilient, ensuring timely delivery of the critical safety apparel your workers rely on to stay safe on the job. Over the past year, we have:
- Increased our inventory by 35%
- Increased our investment in 11,000 non-inventory SKUs. In addition to our standing inventory, we are now stocking items we didn’t previously hold in inventory. This was accomplished based on an analysis of commonly purchased SKUs – style-color-size – items with a goal of reducing lead time, improving delivery to wearers, and limiting the impact of supply chain disruption.
- Consistently shipped orders with an average 90%+ fill rate. Meaning 9 times out of 10, a garment is available on our shelves when an order is placed for that item.
Bottom line, there’s no substitute for having inventory on the shelves! If your AR / FR clothing supplier has stocked shelves in their distribution center, you’ll receive what you need when you need it. Stay tuned for our next post in this series which focuses on labor shortages and how Tyndale has overcome this challenge to minimize its impact on the companies and workers we serve.
