JIT… (No, that doesn’t mean Justin Timberlake)

One important aspect of Alps’ business model is our ability to leverage just-in-time manufacturing to bring you products quickly and at the lowest cost. JIT means that the manufacturer is able to make and drop-ship their products to you without the inconvenience of waiting for a distributor to have it in stock. As you may know, Alps is not a stocking distributor. This allows us to offer you a low price and sell anything and everything you need from our manufacturers and vendors. Obviously it’s unrealistic of us to expect that every manufacturer out there is willing, or even able, to practice just-in-time manufacturing and a lean business model. But we do make every effort to find and partner with JIT manufacturers that consistently manufacture products that will help save you time and money.

A brand new manufacturer that we are proud to present, Sycom Surge, Inc. has joined the Alps team. Sycom features high quality surge protection products and uninterruptible power supplies. Sycom Surge, Inc. is a believer in just-in-time manufacturing and supports the Alps business model. We hope to have further conversations about our supply chain and our lean business model, but we need your input to make that happen.
