Sweet Success: Candy Maker achieved 10% in Net Savings with MRO


One of the largest food confectionery companies in the world needed an MRO partner who could strategically drive efficiencies and operational excellence across all facilities.

The SDI Solution: Integrated Supply Program

SDI delivered an integrated supply program in all eight sites of the food confectionery company. The custom integrated supply program included:

  • Strategic sourcing
  • Procurement
  • Inventory optimization
  • Storeroom operations
  • Ongoing savings

In addition to building an interface with the client’s existing system, SDI created a transition plan with operational stability at each site within 90 days of opening. Standard operating procedures were developed to provide consistency across all storeroom locations.

Net Savings Exceeded 10.5% in the First Year

SDI successfully implemented all eight sites in less than six months, establishing operational consistency across the United States facilities. The total net savings exceeded the first year target of 10.5% and the client has expanded the program to include OEM material. In a recent quarterly review, the client described SDI’s MRO program as “the best of times”.
