Partnership Case Studies

Partnership engagement focuses on identification of opportunities to increase efficiency, standardizing products, controlling product documentation, and automating processes.

Oil Refiner

A major oil refiner relies on DistributionNOW to provide a full complement of mill and janitorial supplies, power and hand tools, and safety and personal protective equipment (PPE) to a number of locations across the United States. Our network of branches, inventory, distribution centers, and delivery trucks ensures the timely and cost‑effective supply of thousands of items procured on a monthly basis. Working with our suppliers, we have been able to provide product consolidation and standardization initiatives that have delivered cost savings to our customer. In addition, on-site vending solutions have improved access to material and implemented material accountability and traceability to operations. DNOW develops customized detail and key performance indicator (KPI) reports on a timely basis, providing a framework for customer collaboration, cost mitigation, and process enhancement.

Drilling Contractor

For a major drilling contractor, DistributionNOW is a trusted contract partner, providing a wide array of OEM drilling spares, handling tools, fluid end expendables, hoses, chemicals, lubricants, solids control, mud treatment, and MRO consumables. We supply these products using our mobile consignment RigPAC® container and local branch inventory. Our local branch manages the RigPAC® inventory, ensuring timely replenishment issued on a weekly basis. Our material manager experts work with the customer to establish effective inventory levels, as well as develop product standardization initiatives that yield not only product savings, but drive a larger magnitude of savings through increased rig uptime and productivity.
