In a press conference held Tuesday, TZA (Booth 3980) announced a new outsourcing program designed to help customers increase productivity, reduce costs and achieve quality objectives. 

The program provides services that allow a company to step away from daily operational challenges and focus on core strengths. TZA implements best practices throughout the DC in design, facility layout, equipment, inventory optimization and workforce management software, then stays on board to make sure the total benefit of the outsourcing program is continually realized.

Focus Products Group, a kitchen and bath consumer products company, was the first client to contract with TZA.  Michael Schoenfeld, TZA senior VP, said the agreement means the company will have the people, technology, processes and performance standards it needs to provide excellent customer service while realizing the benefits of a cost-effective distribution center. After implementation, Schoenfeld said Focus Products Group could expect a 15% to 20% reduction in labor costs and a 30% increase in productivity.

ProMat 2011 will be held March 21 - 24, 2011 at McCormick Place South in Chicago. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry.
