Welding, Cylinders, & Gas Strategic Sourcing and Cost Reduction Expertise

Collaborate with Corcentric’s Strategic Sourcing consultants to reduce costs, drive results, and develop a strategic, proactive approach to Welding, Cylinders, and Gas spend.

Organizations across a variety of industries count on their Welding, Cylinders, & Gas purchases to maintain everyday operations within their facilities and construct their final products. Comprised of subcategories including industrial gases, monitors, and coolants, this area of MRO spend typically forces organizations to make difficult Strategic Sourcing decisions.

For example, Procurement teams need to determine whether a localized or national strategy for sourcing Welding, Cylinders, & Gas will prove more cost effective.  Though the appropriate Strategic Sourcing solution will vary for every organization, national suppliers typically offer significant cost reduction opportunities. This sourcing strategy, however, is hardly a guaranteed success. The cost reduction that accompanies the switch to a national Welding, Cylinders, & Gas distributor could come at the expense of end-user satisfaction, safety standards, or product quality.

Strategic Sourcing initiatives in the Welding, Cylinders, & Gas category also force organizations to decide between renting their bulk storage cylinders and tanks. Lacking this niche subcategory expertise, many Procurement teams struggle to effectively assess the relative costs and benefits of vendor-managed Welding, Cylinders, & Gas rental programs.
