Americo Manufacturing Company, one of the world’s largest floor pad manufacturers, is pleased to announce that it was selected by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine for the publication’s 13th annual listing of the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100, which highlights “100 Great Supply Chain Projects.” The magazine’s editorial team selected Americo for the results directly related to dynamic and customizable reorder reports, developed by Americo’s Purchasing & Sourcing Manager, Chris Kelcourse. “The new reporting is designed to create dynamic reorder level based on sales history and forecasting change. This initiative will allow Americo to more accurately calculate the orders and compare order points to inventory available, and if necessary, advises an order quantity. In short, Chris’ vision and ingenuity in developing this unique reporting system will allow Americo to maintain ideal stock levels throughout the year; saving cost and delivery times for our customers,” stated Tom Owens, Director of Technical Services and Sourcing of Americo Manufacturing Company.

“We are honored to be recognized by Supply & Demand Chain Executive for our project success. This is a testament to the hard work and proven results Americo delivers to our suppliers and customers. We are always striving to improve our clients’ business processes, profitability and bottom line results,” said Chief Executive Officer of Americo Manufacturing Company, Lenny Shutzberg.

The 2015 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 list is comprised of supply chain solution and service providers that are helping their customers and clients achieve supply chain excellence. They have produced measurable gains in ROI through cost- cutting and increased efficiency, whether in warehouse, transportation, procurement sourcing or any other category in the end-to-end supply chain.

The submissions were evaluated by the magazine’s editorial staff, primarily based on: ambitiousness/scope of the project; creative application of technologies/solutions/services used; extent of the business results/impact; and clarity of submission.
