Mission & Vision
Why MRO? Because the success of manufacturing is our mission.
At SDI, we believe in the power of manufacturing – an industry of hard-working, real people who make up the backbone of our economy. In today’s competitive global marketplace, leading manufacturers are finding that they must address and optimize their MRO supply chain–the critical supply of parts, materials, equipment and consumables necessary to keep plants and facilities operating safely and productively–in order to minimize their risk exposure and better compete on the world stage.
MRO business process integration is critical to the success of manufacturing.
Our purpose is to make the process of simplifying and optimizing each client’s MRO supply chain so intuitive, so transparent, so empowering that our clients – both manufacturers and other asset-intensive businesses alike – can achieve the enterprise-wide efficiency, productivity and reliability they demand.
What we do everyday is designed to improve our clients’ production reliability, increase their speed-to-value and simplify their MRO supply chain so their businesses are more agile and adaptable. So they can grow and thrive and continue to make North America great.
Our vision for the future.
Of course we want to be recognized and rewarded for being the premier partner providing MRO/Indirect Integrated Supply Services. But what really matters is that we continue to be passionately focused on creating value for our clients by lowering the total cost of ownership and increasing the effectiveness and reliability of their supply chains – all by demonstrating the benefits of a more streamlined, more connected enterprise.
By making our clients part of a supply chain ecosystem, we provide them with a collaborative learning environment and an entrepreneurial business partner with the latest thinking and emerging technology. Together with our clients, we will transform the conversations around MRO business process from a cost of doing business to a way to create value and impact business outcomes.

It takes a progressive manager to push the organization to look at indirect spend and managing it in a different way - but once you see it, then you realize the opportunity.
In the third post in this series on MRO As-a-Service by Spend Matters, Pierre Mitchell and Michael Lamoureux talk about how managing MRO as a process delivers benefits from efficiency to effectiveness and beyond to an evolutionary phase. The next generation of value, MRO-as-a-Service, helps organizations build intelligent, agile, scalable and integrated supply chains (direct and indirect).
The project team has worked its way through Define, Measure, Analyze, and Improve. It’s time to begin the Control phase. The key stakeholders gather to evaluate the solution as implemented and create a plan to sustain the improvements. The goal is to standardize the improved processes, establish an audit schedule and schedule periodic follow-up to identify additional opportunities for improvement.
