Evolve inventory management

Used to be that having the best quality product and being able to delivery it exactly when needed, was enough to be a market leader. Now customers expect more, and we have evolved with them. We create value for Swagelok by creating value for you; and that means streamlining when and how you get supplied.

Swagelok inventory management options

Vendor-managed inventory

We have saved our customers thousands of dollars in inventory carrying costs by reducing their overall stocking levels and transaction costs. Steps include analyzing current usage and setting agreed minimum and maximum levels for inventory.


Swagelok Northern California can enter orders for replenishment products into your purchasing systems and/or periodically visit your facility to replenish your inventory. You can also get reports on performance indicators like cost savings.

Collaborative forecasting

Link your forecasts with our fulfillment to ensure you have a steady supply of Swagelok components. We analyze your historical and forecasted product usage to ensure high fill rates while avoiding carrying costs associated with overstocking.

Consignment inventory

Few regions outrank ours for competition and high prices for real estate. With space at a premium and pressure to reduce carrying costs, some Swagelok customers save by having us hold items for them ("on consignment") at our facility.

Custom kitting

We can pre-package components to your specifications. This service can help reduce packaging waste and your manpower requirement, reduce warehousing costs, and increase the efficiency of your assembly process.

Automated dispensing

Automated dispensing and replenishment can drive more savings. Get product storage bins that use distinctive labeling that helps users, tracks activity, and can include your own stocking numbers. Performance reports document results each month.
