Inventory Management

"Value" goes beyond pricing. Ensuring that you have just the right product in the right place at the right time is priceless. Poor inventory management can cost a company dearly in production delays and assembly line shutdowns.

AST understands inventory management and the impact on its customers. AST has a number of systems in place to ensure the highest level of product availability to make certain that its customers are not caught short on inventory. AST utilizes a world-wide network of world-class factories and stocks millions of bearings of various types, sizes and materials. We have made serious investments to develop timely deliveries and inventory management systems to help our customers reduce costs and achieve 100% on-time delivery.
