DBD Distribution secures sustainable growth through efficiency boost
The UK’s leading Contract Appliance Distributor, DBD Distribution has taken the decision to implement Slimstock’s inventory management solution, Slim4. Focused on improving their already impressive customer service, this strategic investment will help the contract appliance distributor to deliver growth through increasing the efficiency of their stock holding.
DBD distribution have been delivering a complete range of appliance and kitchen solutions to the construction industry for over 30 years. With customers including Barratt Homes, Taylor Wimpey and Galliford Try, the specialist contract appliance distributor offers home builders and main contractors with the best value and the widest range of products in the market place.
With strong relationships with all of the major European appliance manufacturers, the implementation of Slim4 will help the team at DBD to drive further efficiencies within their ordering and forecast process. Furthermore, in order to meet their customer’s demand for flexibility, the project will focus upon optimising stock across its supply chain network.
Alex Bernard, Director of Commercial at DBD Distribution explains the decision to partner with Slimstock: “For many years, our purchasing decisions have relied heavily on the skills of 1 or 2 individuals. Following significant growth over this time, the need to refine our processes meant a partnership with Slimstock was vital in order to help us to continue to give an excellent service to our customers whilst achieving our growth in a more sustainable way”.
Richard Evans, managing director at Slimstock UK goes on to conclude: “As a business that also strives to add real value to their customers, I see great synergy between Slimstock and DBD distribution. As we embark upon this project, we are excited to be building a lasting partnership.”
