Vendor Managed Inventory

Carrying inventory can be a costly proposition for any business. MacDonald & Owen’s Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) program ensures you have the lumber you need when you need it without having to carry the extra inventory.

Benefits of the Program

  • Inventory remains stocked to appropriate levels.
  • Carrying less inventory improves cash flow.
  • Pricing is fixed for product cost consistency.

A designated MacDonald & Owen employee monitors your usage through our proprietary software (MacTrac).  This allows MacDonald & Owen staff to anticipate your upcoming needs according to your stock level requirements and your historical usage.

Let MacDonald & Owen help you simplify your inventory management with our highly successful VMI program.

5/5

“Since its inception this program has been a big benefit for our company, and for me personally as the purchasing manager. From day one, no matter which person I was working with the service has been top notch. I was actually apprehensive about starting this in the beginning, simply because I was unfamiliar with them; I’m glad I did it!!”
