Purchasing Department Split

Orgill has changed the structure and operations of its purchasing department. These organizational changes reflect the company’s long-term plans for accelerated growth and a continued focus on its mission to help its customers be successful. The department will now be divided into separate merchandising and replenishment divisions. This reorganization will allow the merchandising division to focus on vendor relationships, promotions, pricing, sales, reviews, and revenue generation. The replenishment division will focus its efforts on conditioning inventory, maintaining service levels, inventory turnover, and supply chain management. Jeff Curler, executive vice-president of purchasing, says, “The company’s rapid growth and the new market realities we have seen develop over the last couple of years made this realignment even more important. This change helps us better address the distinctly different, yet connected, functions our purchasing department deals with on a daily basis.”
