For the second year in a row, Kloeckner Metals has won the Supplier of the Year Award and the first year for the Innovation Award from Prime Advantage for the fall of 2016. Prime Advantage is a mid-market manufacturing buying group that was founded in 1997. Kloeckner has been a member of the group since its inception, and this is Kloeckner’s 8th time winning the award. It is voted on by the member companies, most of which are steel buyers. The award comes in response to Kloeckner’s efforts to improve the process of ordering steel online.
With online shopping becoming ubiquitous, the digitalization of the steel ordering process is inevitable. Already, there are many companies offering online ordering. Switching to an online ordering service can be a game changer in inventory management.
