• Centrally located 320,000 sq. ft. manufacturing and distribution facilities in Dixon, Illinois
• 95% weighted order fill rate over the past two years
• NA supply chain better controls cost, quality, delivery, company says
Plews & Edelmann, a leading manufacturer and marketer of power steering components, has expanded its position as a leading supplier to the automotive aftermarket by hosting more than 90% of its supply chain in North America, according to the company. The heart of the operation is the centrally located 320,000-square-foot manufacturing and distribution facility at the company headquarters in Dixon, Illinois.
“The ability to build and distribute components directly in North America was the driving force behind a weighted order fill rate of over 95 percent during the past two years, even with global supply chains facing unprecedented disruptions,” said Tony Edwards, Plews & Edelmann VP, Business Development. “Plews & Edelmann has kept research, design, and manufacturing capabilities home, allowing us to better control our cost, quality, and delivery for our customers. Our supply chain is no doubt one of our main competitive advantages in the marketplace.”

In addition to the competitive advantage of a North American supply chain, Plews & Edelmann has developed technology that helps provide customers with the exact product mix that they require, the company says. Edelmann Analytics is an industry-leading service that provides each customer with stocking recommendations and an optimized inventory based on the VIO in the trading area, customer sales mix, POS data, part life cycle, increased turns potential, and GMROI. For specialized, single unit requests, Plews & Edelmann is able to service and deliver orders virtually anywhere in the United States within two days.
