BERARDI Issues New Catalogue of Extracomponents 

Interview with Simone Falà
Business Development Manager, Berardi

 

An impressive range of 112 product families and over 25 thousand items, ready on stock.

You have just issued your new catalogue of Extracomponents, displaying an impressive range of 112 product families and over 25 thousand items, most of which are ready on stock. These items are used in many industrial fields, from precision mechanics, to agri-machinery, electronics, and industrial automation.

Why did you decide to develop your Extracomponents range?
About ten years ago, we started to perceive that our customers may need to reduce their supplier management costs. We understood that it would be very important for them to be supplied with different products from a single partner. That's why we decided to invest in the Extracomponents series, where we define everything outside of Berardi's core business, which are bolts and steel fasteners.

About ten years ago, we started having the perception that our customers might need to cut on supplier management costs. We understood that it would be crucial for them to source different products from a single partner. Therefore, we decided to invest in the Extracomponents range, by which we define everything outside of Berardi’s core business, which is bolts and steel fasteners.

How did you begin putting this idea into practice?
We started from an important category - springs. In 2011, we started a fruitful cooperation with US-based Lee Spring, the standard and custom-made springs supplier for the most demanding applications. Lee Spring is able to produce springs with special surface treatments from special materials, along with having approximately 24,000 stock-ready items.

But you did not stop there. Why?
We continued to expand the scope of our passion and willingness to meet our customers' daily needs. We spent a lot of effort and resources to develop this project. Our Extracomponents' range today includes fittings, lifting equipment, vibration dampers, gaskets, cable glands, spacers and operating elements, among many other products. 

Does this Extracomponents range complete your logistics services?
Yes. The project has been developed mainly to support our Kanban and Kanban Up logistics services. New products in stock are valuable to make our logistics even more efficient.

You spent a lot of time and resources to follow your intuition and make it a reality. Have you reached the goals you set for this project?
Exactly. Ten years from now, we will be able to say that the idea was good. We meet the demands of our customers and as a result we have seen the growth of this business and the turnover of the Berardi Group. But we won't stop there. We will continue to grow and develop even better partnerships with our customers.
