Parts availability. What else matters?
When one essential part is all you need to get production back online, nothing else matters. That’s why SDI has a proven and unmatched track record for parts availability – our clients demand it. And our reputation hinges on it.
Easy to order. Extremely.
The best parts in the world are useless if they’re difficult to get. Clients who reserve parts through the SDI system find it refreshingly easy and efficient, thanks to our patented, searchable, cloud-based cataloguing system, SDiExchange.
Not just parts – quality parts.
Common industry scenario: substituting quality parts with sub-standard parts because of price or availability. That’s not how SDI works – as a supplier-agnostic operation, our resource network is carefully vetted to ensure the most competitive pricing and to stock only the best of the best. Too much is at stake to risk your maintenance program with anything less.
Inventory accuracy saves time, money and hassle.
Part of a planned, connected and aligned supply chain is smart inventory management. No matter how many SKUs, categories or product brands, preventing obsolete inventories and maintaining proper in-stock parts can make or break any size operation. Learn about how SDIs' predictive inventory management services can make you more productive.
We also maintain excellent customer service.
Everyone at every level of SDI is out to exceed your expectations. In the area of maintenance, your parts will be right, the price will be right, and the timing of delivery will be right. We pride ourselves on our customer service – we look forward to proving that to you each and every day.

The project team has worked its way through Define, Measure, Analyze, and Improve. It’s time to begin the Control phase.
