SDI Headquarters Expands

12/21/2012

In December 2012 SDI’s corporate headquarters moved into their new 31,000 square foot suite adjacent to their previous location at Island View Crossing along the Delaware River in the quaint borough of Bristol, PA.    The building is a restored warehouse with a history rich in local manufacturing including bi-planes in World War I, liberty ship building in War World II and later became the site of Dial Soap Corporation.

The additional space houses SDI’s 60+ person Customer Service Center, and it’s Shared Services Groups including Strategic Sourcing, Information Technology, Process Excellence, Finance, Accounting and Human Resources.  The renovated suite includes a state of the art training center, formal conference rooms and a collaboration area with high top tables and casual seating for less formal meetings.

Success Story

It is important for my MRO supply chain provider to have a general understanding of my business--SDI knows my business from end to end.

SDI at Work

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.
