According to Stover, the expansion will also allow CerMark Sales to have more of its laser marking materials available to customers. "We've had real problems with having enough on hand right now," he says. The reason behind the shortage is an issue with the manu- facturer of components for the product. "It'll probably be 30 days before we have spray cans (in stock), which is our number one seller. We wanted to have extra room to order more inven- tory than we would ever need available at several locations." CerMark Sales is also working to meet demands in other regions of the U.S. Because the spray cans must be shipped via UPS ground, customers experience delays in receiving products. In order to better serve its customers in Texas, the company plans to open a new warehouse in Denton, Texas, just north of Dallas. "We had multiple cus- tomers request us to house and ship our products in Texas, which has seen an insane amount of growth for us," Stover says. The warehouse, sched- uled to open January 2017 at the time of publishing, will service customers in Oklahoma as well. In addition to the expansion and the opening of its new warehouse in Texas, CerMark Sales is in the pro- cess of updating its order and ship- ping management to serve customers more efficiently. "We're working on a whole new Enterprise Resource Plan- ning (ERP) system to be more efficient with our inventory and order tracking in several places just making sure we know what's in the pipeline coming in from suppliers," Stover adds. The company also plans to roll out a variety of new product lines in the coming months. LASER BLACK ON METAL LASER BLACK ON METAL 800.733.7705 • www.LaserBits.com Works for all lasers!
