CINCINNATI, OH -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- Datalliance announced today that Legrand, North America has selected the Datalliance Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) program for its Wiremold® product line. The Wiremold line is the industry's widest range of end-to-end wire and cable management pathway solutions. Wiremold products work together seamlessly to bring power and communications from point A to point B, in both residential and commercial applications.
"We see Vendor Managed Inventory as an avenue to help strengthen and build our distributor relationships. The VMI process will aim to help grow mutual sales and take cost out of the supply chain for both our customers and Legrand," said Brian DiBella, Vice President and General Manager for the Wiremold range at, Legrand. "VMI allows us to work more closely with key customers to create a financial value stream; carefully collaborating on product life cycle issues and new product introductions. As the clear leader our category, we selected Datalliance VMI as the foundation for our VMI program. Datalliance's service model was a strong reason for our decision; our distributor base strongly recommended them and it allows for long term expansion across other Legrand businesses."
According to Tom Hoar, Director of Sales at Datalliance, "We're thrilled to have the Wiremold line as part of our continually expanding electrical VMI community. The Legrand leadership team will be fun to work with and we look forward to supporting them on this critical initiative. Working with over 160 electrical distributors across the globe, Datalliance has 'tried and true' processes around implementation and startup that will enable a smooth start-up to quickly and cost-effectively allow us to see performance results in the near term. Our electrical manufacturer partners continue to drive financial success from the VMI process. Because of this VMI has become the way leading electrical manufacturers choose to do business with their electrical distributor partners."
