MSC Industrial Direct Co., Inc. to Showcase Vending Solutions and PRO-SAFE® at ASSE's SAFETY 2011

Melville, New York, June 2, 2011 - MSC Industrial Direct Co., Inc., one of the country's leading suppliers of metalworking and MRO solutions, will highlight efficient inventory management solutions and a wide range of personal protective equipment and facility safety products at ASSE's SAFETY 2011 show. Attendees who visit MSC at booth #755 will experience the company's innovative vending solutions and PRO-SAFE® product line. SAFETY 2011 will be held June 12 - 15 at McCormick Place West in Chicago, Illinois.

Exclusive to MSC Industrial Direct, the PRO-SAFE brand spans over 1,100 products within the PPE and facility safety categories, many of which are proudly made in America. Competitively priced for cost-conscious customers, PRO-SAFE products are high quality, meeting or exceeding applicable ANSI standards.

CAP 500e vending-machine-type dispensing units allow shops to reduce inventory levels and reduce waste. The systems are electronically connected to allow automation of replenishment orders, as well as efficient tracking of stock levels for inventory-managed items.

When a product reaches a predetermined level, an order is automatically placed and details are emailed to the user so that a stock-out can be avoided. Additionally, shops can make arrangements with their local MSC representatives to maintain extra stock of those particular products most often used at their facilities. This provides additional flexibility in the event that workloads shift rapidly and supply of a product is fully depleted.
