Control Devices, LLC Announces Distributor Quick Ship Program

FENTON, MISSOURI (August 20, 2012) – Control Devices launches a new program to increase on-time delivery, reduce lead times, and reduce the stocking needs of its distributor partners. 

Chris FitzGerald, CEO of Control Devices, officially launched the Quick Ship program today, saying “Control Devices has successfully undertaken a series of important operational improvements aimed at improving customer service and reducing delivery lead times of its broad line of specialty control valves, float valves, and condensate traps, culminating in our exciting launch of the distributor Quick Ship program.”  Mr. FitzGerald went on to explain, “Quick Ship is the latest initiative to boost our Company’s presence through the important distributor segment, and we look forward to working even more closely with our distributor partners to further expand Control Devices’ geographic and industry coverage.” 

Control Devices’ Quick Ship program lead is Paul Rekart, Sales Operations Manager, who explained,  “As we were doing an analysis of our inventory and customer order trends, we realized that many of our distributors were placing recurring orders throughout the year, so we developed the Quick Ship Program to specifically address those SKUs in higher demand as we looked for ways to better serve the distributors’ needs.”  Mr. Rekart expanded, “Understanding that speed of delivery of these orders is also paramount, we intend to ship all orders placed under this program within three business days of receipt of order, which should allow our enrolled distributors to better meet their customer demands while reducing their own inventory stocking requirements.”

The Distributor Quick Ship Program currently offers nearly 300 SKUs from Control Devices’ broad offering of specialty control valves, Bob® and Bobby® branded float valves, and Drain-All condensate traps for immediate shipping, with additional SKUs to be added in the coming months in accordance with customer demand and customer request. Control Devices will continue to monitor and track orders to meet the seasonal and changing demand of the distributors. In addition to ensuring high-demand SKUs are in stock and available, shipment of those SKUs included in the program, will generally take place within three (3) business days when orders are received by 3pm CT Monday through Friday.
