The Bufab Group is growing!

The Bufab Group acquired FLOS B.V. in February 2015. FLOS were established 1963 by André Flos and their key to success has been offering their customers the full range of fasteners, components and C-Parts as well as making their assembled parts handling a little bit easier. FLOS is located in Eindhoven in the Netherlands.
FLOS has invested in their warehouse (special small part and low runner storing system) to be able to compete with VMI solutions and ready-to-ship articles. A substantial part of the sales is via VMI solutions that are tailor made for each customer. FLOS are focusing on customers interested in the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and not just the item price. This has resulted in an increasing sub-assembly operations where they are mounting or kitting  parts for the customer and thereby adding value to the products.

FLOS is known on the market as specialist and Solutionists - a perfect match for Bufab. Read more about FLOS here

How Flos is creating extra value for their customers

The collaboration with our customer started with a tender on standard parts. The customer is one of the world's largest producer of egg sorting machines located in the Netherlands. The clients goal was to decrease the number of suppliers from 90 to 1. The customer saw the opportunities in a collaboration with Flos in order to optimize their internal processes and supply of their special products.

The customer were using a lot of sub-assemblies. Organizing these themselves caused inefficiency on many levels throughout the entire organization. Outsourcing these assemblies to Flos was therefore beneficial in many ways. With our own assembly department we are specialized in organizing small technical sub-assemblies, with our specialized logistic and purchasing department we are capable of organizing these sub-assemblies most efficient.
