OPERATIONS

MRO OPERATIONS

Our MRO purchasing strategy services leverage a streamlined organizational structure that focuses resources and expertise on supporting dedicated on-site teams. Procurement, customer service and storeroom management functions are designed to be fully customer facing at the client site; backed by experienced and accessible support staff at our corporate headquarters (areas of expertise include AP/AR, HR, IT, Finance, Business Intelligence/Analytics, Engineering, Training, and Project Management). We believe a key competence that Turtle & Hughes Integrated Supply (THIS) has as a service provider is our demonstrated flexibility in business processes. No one site, program or client is the same. As the saying goes, “When you’ve seen one integrated supply program, you’ve seen one.” The key is to take time at the outset to assess the needs of each client on an individual basis and then provide a solution to meet the highest priority needs.

SUCCESS STORY

SEAL OF APPROVAL

An aerospace customer needed to improve the masking process that protects the surface finish of a product component.

SUCCESS STORY

SHEDDING LIGHT ON CANCER RESEARCH

When a new 21-story research center was being constructed in New York City, Turtle & Hughes Lighting department put together one of its most complex packages ever. This included custom-designed lab bench lighting fixtures that work in conjunction with a daylight harvesting system and a shade control system. The system prevents light pollution at night, creating a controlled environment to conduct research so scientists could achieve a better understanding of the disease and how to manage it.
