The majority of the Wing-Hamlin Agency’s efforts are directed to supporting the Distribution Marketplace. We service small, medium and nationally recognized distributors. They are divided into three categories: Vendor Managed Inventory Distribution, MRO Distribution and Regional Distribution. Many of the products we represent support all three marketplaces and in some instances, individual markets.
In the MRO Marketplace packaging, custom labeling and kitting are value added features. Domestic and Import products are offered. Standard products are available from the vendor’s inventory with short lead times. Our Suppliers are capable of supporting EDI initiatives and handling Advanced Shipping Notices (ASN). Featured products supporting this type of business are Retaining Rings, HVAC Clamps, Inch and Metric Fasteners, Chrome Plated Hardware, Grease Fittings and Exhaust Clamps. The breadth of product lines available is extremely important to allow the MRO Distributor to provide one stop shopping to their customer.
The Vendor Managed Inventory Marketplace focuses on volume opportunities. Many of the parts are special (to print) items. Our manufacturers have reasonable minimums and are able to support these type of requirements. They have engineers on staff available to assist in production line reviews and product design. Featured products that support these type of initiatives include Milled From Bar Nuts, Externally and Internally Threaded Cold Formed Fasteners, Double End Studs, Retaining Rings and Engineered Fasteners.
