Vallen North America

With over 150 branches across North America, Vallen leads the way as one of the most experienced and innovative MRO and safety goods and service suppliers today.

Vallen is a leading provider of indirect industrial supplies—all those materials that are not part of the products our customers manufacture.

From earplugs to specialty tools, to abrasives and cutting tools, we cover the vast majority of our customers’ maintenance, repair, operations and production-related needs. Vallen is also a leader in safety services with offerings that include safety equipment inspection, maintenance, certification and solution design.

Digital Solutions

Vallen understands the day-to-day reality of indirect supply. We know the drivers of cost and the importance of making your task as efficient as possible. That’s why we have e-commerce options that are right for your business and procurement needs.

Roughly 80 percent of the time spent on indirect supply goes to the purchase of everyday items. That’s why reducing overall cost is about much more than low prices. Managing the process to save time and effort can have a significant impact on your bottom line.

Digital Solutions include:

  • Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)
  • Punchout
  • E-Quote
  • E-Link
  • Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI)
