Automated Vending

FK MRO is a premier AutoCrib® distributor. AutoCrib® vending machines are purpose-built to provide maximum accountability, security, versatility and uptime. Automated Industrial Vending is the most comprehensive way to implement secure Lean inventory management efficiently and effectively.

We currently have equipment installed at Simcoe County EMS headquarters to vend PPE and medicines. We also have a TX750 Device Depot installed at CSIS in Ottawa.

Our equipment can be used to manage firearms, cash, pharmaceuticals, PPE, as well as keys for automobile fleets. If you can buy it, we can vend it. The applications are endless.

FK automated vending solutions help to create an inventory ‘pull’ replenishment system which is the optimum Lean inventory management model. We often combine our automated vending solutions with our Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) services. When combined, these two programs enable FK to dramatically reduce your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for inventory supplies. For some partners, FK reduces their costs even further by consigning inventory in specific circumstances and performing documented cost savings projects.

FK vending solutions create accountability, security, and transparency from the point of storage to the point of use. This enables us to manage the entire channel more effectively and allows us to analyze your usage patterns and help you act before issues arise.
