Industrial Vending

In some cases, it can be advantageous and cost effective to control MROP inventories in a forward stocking location by use of industrial vending or locker equipment. Ballard Industrial can perform a thorough analysis to determine if this makes sense within your business.


Industrial Vending can be so much more than simply dispensing a product. Control access, monitor calibrated equipment (torque wrenches, precision tools…), identify training opportunities through usage data and more. The technology is quite robust and continues to evolve.


Let us help you determine if an industrial vending solution is the right fit for you as a complete solution or as a component of a more comprehensive installation.
