Procurement Services

Inventory Management

Procurement is an important part of a comprehensive business strategy. In an industrial organization, materials typically represent 60-80 percent of the cost of the finished good. For that reason, effective procurement and cost management strategies will give you a competitive advantage. To understand your costs and make good decisions, it is critical to look at the details analytically. Utilizing common business tools, Onex can analyze the real costs of what you buy for your organization and develop effective cost management strategies. As W. Edwards Deming famously said, “In God we trust, all others must bring data”

Lean Supply Chain

Our procurement department has the process down to a science…and a little art. The right materials, the right quality, and at the right time. Our top procurement specialists have unmatched experience working for some of the world’s largest industrial companies. Onex has the knowledge and expertise to help you develop a plan to reduce inventory costs, eliminate waste, and save time. This includes a range of lean supply chain options from Onex’s JIT inventory program to blanket orders which streamline fulfillment.

Eliminate Waste

Monolithic refractory materials and mortars expire 6 months after production! Did you buy in bulk only to find the material at the back of your warehouse hard as a rock?  What a waste! We’ll manage your inventory, reduce waste and costs by providing you the right materials, at the right time, in the right quantities.


Simplify Ordering

Onex stocks materials from all the major refractory manufacturers and we have long standing relationships with our vendors. This allows us to choose the best products on the market to fit your specific needs. Let Onex be your one stop shop. We can save you time on entering purchase orders and money on shipping. Plus, we will deliver just when you need it, so your cash is not tied up in inventory when it could be used to grow your business!
