Continuous Improvement, LEAN, 6-Sigma

LEAN thinking means constantly generating ideas to get better. This is an ingrained part of the 3B’s culture. Our associates are turning in hundreds of ideas each year that enable us to steadily improve how we run our business and serve our customers. Our impeccable service and lowest in industry overhead costs are a testament to the "war on waste" we fight each and every day. We use a simple 5-step process that emphasizes 2 things: discipline and common sense.

We have experience with customers large and small, in many industries, managing the full spectrum of MRO products and service. We have a proven record of success. Our IT associates work with a range of customer systems, and understand the need for flexibility and immediate response to our customer’s needs. We provide our associates with an industry-recognized training program.
