Productivity Improvement

Gases, welding and safety products represent only a small portion of a manufacturer’s operating costs, yet they have an enormous impact on productivity. Today, manufacturers across the country are realizing that the lowest product cost doesn’t mean the lowest total cost. That’s why they’re turning to OUTLOOK® Services from Airgas®. OUTLOOK® is a complete supply chain management solution for gases, welding and safety products that streamlines the whole management process, giving you more time to focus on your core business and realize substantial savings while you do it.

It’s a proven solution that eliminates waste, bottlenecks and inefficiencies in supply chain management, delivering substantial savings to the customer. In fact, the savings for gases, welding and safety products can be as much as 20 times more than those realized by simply looking for the lowest product price alone.

It’s our unique approach which sets OUTLOOK® apart from any other supply management service. Our focus is on measurable solutions that squeeze the maximum productivity from every facet of the process. From ordering and delivery to inventory control and distribution, the closer we look, the more we can save you.

We can custom design an OUTLOOK® program specifically for your needs. Your program may include:

  • Site survey and assessment

Delivery Modes Analysis

AirArc offers its Gas customers three (3) delivery options:

Packaged Gas Solutions
Liquids and Micro Bulk Gas Solutions
Bulk Gas Solutions

When the customer’s volume of gas consumption warrants it, we work closely with the Airgas® Bulk Gas specialists to perform a site assessment, prepare a cost/benefit analysis and present recommendations to achieve the lowest cost solution for our customers. All of this is done at no charge to the customer.

In addition, AirArc can provide customers with Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) and Vending Machine options to manage their welding and safety supplies.

VMI is available to larger customers who want AirArc to be totally responsible for stocking and managing their inventory of welding and safety supplies and equipment. AirArc will perform an assessment of the customer’s site and usage history, provide suggested stock levels for approval, then visit the customer’s premises on a weekly basis to restore the stock to the desired levels, as needed. This process could also be used for managing industrial and specialty gases.

Vending Machines are becoming increasingly popular with many customers for monitoring and controlling employee utilization and eliminating theft or shortages of small expensive parts. In this case, AirArc will supply the customer with a locked vending machine which is only accessible when an employee’s unique ID is used to open the gate and the product bar code is entered.

If any of the above delivery modes is of interest to you, please give us a call.

Specialty Gas Assessments

Whether you require high-purity gases or a special blend of gases to meet a certain manufacturing or other process, AirArc will work with the Airgas® Specialty Gas professionals to clearly understand your needs and make specific recommendations to meet your requirements. There is no charge for this personalized service.
