Elkay Implements VMI Program
September 22, 2005
Elkay successfully implemented its first vendor-managed inventory (VMI) program for water cooler and fountain products. The pilot program was initiated with Central Supply of Indiana and will enable the Indianapolis-based plumbing wholesaler to maintain optimal inventory levels for water cooler and fountain products. It incorporates an EDI-based exchange of sales, inventory and order replenishment information. Elkay intends to explore additional VMI opportunities with other customers.
