Windsor, CT -- Kaman Industrial Technologies Corp., a leading distributor of industrial parts, and Predictive Service LLC, a global leader in providing predictive maintenance and engineering services (reliability services), announced a collaboration between the two companies, whereby Kaman will distribute reliability services from Predictive Service in the industrial distribution market.
The agreement allows Kaman to offer complete solutions across North America that include industrial components, inventory management, and reliability services through its more than 200 service centers and extensive sales force. The collaboration expands Kaman's offerings while leveraging Predictive Service's ability to provide managed reliability services at any location in North America.
"Both companies have the same goal—to help our customers become more productive, improve uptime, and increase their ROI", said Thomas St. Lawrence, National Account Manager For Maintenance And Reliability at Kaman Industrial Technologies. "Reliability and inventory management have typically been in separate corners. In a perfect world, they work together, which is what we have done with Predictive Service. Together, we offer a phenomenal package."
"Kaman's extensive sales force is at a local level so they have in-depth knowledge of the needs of their customers.
