It achieves this by strengthening and leveraging strategic partnerships with suppliers to create meaningful and competitive business opportunities to reach buyers –and results in significant operational wins for all stakeholders.

AMP is partnering with Proponent to solve what was previously an outdated and cumbersome supply chain procurement process by leveraging automation, improving connectivity, and creating efficiencies so customers receive the parts they want at the best prices quickly and on-time. As one of the first to incorporate technology in distribution, Proponent is excited and equipped to help AMP transform and lead a paradigm shift in the MRO industry.
