As an electrical products supplier, we have spent considerable time, money, and resources to ensure our operations as a supplier are efficient. We feel this translates into trust; we can be trusted to be more consistent in delivery of products and services due to operational transparency, training and systems support.
Central Distribution Model:
At our ISO 9001 Central Distribution Center, we manage over 20,000 SKU which are bar coded, received, put-away, cycle counted, picked and transferred using a wireless, paperless warehouse management software system. In large part due to our ERP, Warehouse Management Software and internal processes, our customers receive the right product when they require it. This is evidenced by our picking accuracy, order fulfillment, number of shipments per order, number of back orders, and inventory on-hand. Six EBH branch locations use the same technology in their locations to manage their inventory levels.
As an electrical products supplier, we realize that we must be efficient in moving goods from our manufacturer’s partner’s warehouse to our Distribution Center - and then out to our branches that serve the local community. Electrical supply does not work without a managed, evaluated, measured, and continuously improved inventory system.
With tailored inventory by branch, E.B. Horsman manages the inventory requirements (electrical supplies) of our customers and branches centrally, which contributes to our operational efficiency. Our 21 branches are able to share inventory with each and every EBH branch, in a highly efficient and cost effective manner that ensures on time delivery with virtually no additional cost to our customers. We are able to transfer products between seventeen branches on an overnight basis with the remaining branches being served in two business days throughout British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.
As an electrical supplier our logistics must also be operationally efficient. Where possible, we have agreed upon freight and logistics companies and policies to move product throughout Canada and US. We have an extensive network of freight companies that service the communities, towns and cities appropriate to their business.
ISO 9001:2008 In January 1996, E.B. Horsman & Son’s quality system was officially recognized as meeting the requirements of the ISO 9001, international standard for quality assurance. The current scope of registration includes our Head Office and Distribution Center located in Campbell Heights, and our Surrey Sales Branch, Data Communications, Projects Division, and Process, Automation & Controls Division located in Surrey.
We feel that our ISO 9001 registration best exemplifies our commitment to servicing our customers, strengthening our relationships with our electrical suppliers, and building the internal mechanisms necessary to ensure that we are the Electrical Distributor of Choice entering the twenty-first century.
