Supply chain management offered by Pentair Thermal Management includes the planning and management of all activities involved in sourcing, procurement, conversion and logistics management. These activities are all executed under the umbrella of ‘Operational excellence’.
By applying the lead-buyer concept, Pentair Thermal Management’ procurement professionals are responsible for customer and/or project specific purchases. The logistics management for projects is coordinated with the overall project management to ensure that it is synchronised with the project needs and project schedule.
As a result all movement and storage of required products, work-in-process inventory and deliverables from point-of-origin to point-of-delivery are controlled and achieved by a maximum added value through strategic sourcing by keeping in mind the ‘total cost of ownership’ principles for the customer.
Pentair Thermal Management standard product offering is supplied from its two main distribution centres in California, USA and in Leuven, Belgium. All logistics are executed using advanced planning methods under the umbrella of ‘Operational excellence’.
