The right amount of supply, the exact time you need it with a consistent quality is what our sourcing, service & supply model delivers.

All of our customers manufacture or re-distribute products to other individuals doing the same. Our vendor managed inventory (VMI) programs revolve around a rock solid foundation of certified, specialized personnels.

Technology is one of the key strengths that Karl W. Richter Ltd offers. We believe data interfacing and the use of technology to share information with our client base is critical to the success of both our businesses.

WHSEManager is being employed to manage our own warehouse completely wireless, including receiving, order management, overstock, quick-pick locations, quarantine & returns.

Philosophy

In sales, quality is almost a cliche comment these days. Everyone claims the highest quality goods, no matter what they've done or haven't done to qualify their products. At Karl W. Richter Ltd we consider three key factors to warrant quality.

  1. We qualify our supply base when sourcing material. Facility visits, product testing and first article inspection of goods are some of the key things we do.
  2. We place inspection guidelines on each product group and/or line item, with consideration of its risk. These guidelines will include critical features and methods to be employed to qualify the goods.
  3. We always say, "It isn't making the mistake that's the problem, it is how you respond to it!" This philosophy is certainly applicable to quality. When a problem is brought to our attention, we are expedient in quarantining & investigating the root cause. Managing the best course of action to containment and permanent correction is our key goal and is critical in keeping your production moving without interruption.
