Inventory usually accounts for 50% of a company's investments in assets and it is a challenge to maintain the balance between satisfactory customer service levels and inventory costs. Air Master was already working through the challenges of recovery from Hurricane Maria and an earthquake in southern Puerto Rico. Then the COVID pandemic shut down the company for several months, with a worldwide supply chain disruption affecting business production and sales.
At present Air Master is beginning to spread its reach into southern Florida’s hurricane protection market. The company was approaching $80 million in sales and started to have operational challenges typical of fast growing companies, but had limited resources with experience in solving supply chain problems. Air Master recognized the need for assistance with proven experience in the window and door manufacturing sector to improve purchasing and inventory control. Air Master needed a strategic approach to their supply chain.
