Brampton, ON — Peel Industrial Supplies has recently been awarded a large contract to provide a major Canadian aerospace company with cutting tools and related MRO supplies.

Peel Industrial has teamed up with WinWare Inc. of Marietta, Ga., to provide the CribMaster Inventory Management System as an integral part of the contract to help manage an estimated C$5 million of inventory annually.

The CribMaster Inventory Management System will help Peel Industrial monitor tool inventory and usage, track consumption and budget, issue purchase orders and provide more than 170 standard reports.

CribMaster provides Peel Industrial with information that allows it to reduce inventory on-hand, stock outs and ordering costs for the aerospace facilities.

"We are pleased to be partnered with Peel Industrial to provide added-value," said WinWare president Larry Harper. "We will assist Peel with the needed tools and inventory management expertise to provide hard and soft dollar savings to their customers."

"This contract is a huge opportunity for us," said Reg Middel, business development manager with Peel Industrial. "Being able to offer a powerful management system like CribMaster was a helpful part in landing the contract."

Initially 37 CribMaster ToolCubes (software controlled, secure, point-of-use modular distribution devices) will be installed and operational in the third quarter of 2001. In total, it is estimated that 125 CribMaster ToolCubes will be installed. This project represents the largest CribMaster installation in Canada to date.
