Waste management review gives HVAC distributor new controls

The client, S.G. Torrice Company, is a HVAC distributor operating out of 250,000 square feet in eight locations across Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Massachusetts, where it also owns a 25,000 square- foot state-of-the-art sheet metal shop.

With the sole procurement staff member required to give most of his attention to direct costs, S.G. Torrice turned to Expense Reduction Analysts (ERA) for assistance with G&A expenses.

ERA techniques bring benefits now and in the future

The company’s CEO, Stephen Torrice, speaks for many of our clients when he observes, "It's remarkable how simple overhead costs can increase insidiously year after year when you are busy fighting the big fires, trying to keep running your business, and not monitoring every invoice.”

“ERA savings techniques helped us improve cost management, optimize spending, and get our suppliers’ attention,” said Torrice. “ERA techniques will serve us well after their engagement ends."

The company’s Purchasing Director, Charlie Ferrera, noted, “There is a great benefit in having an overhead expert find incremental savings after our standard procurement efforts. ERA does this quickly and efficiently and has left me with a lot of techniques to improve our future efforts in overhead areas.”

Other Information

·         Mid-contract review resulted in lower rates and contract extension

·         Added recycling service to lower mixed waste

·         Recouped a $5,000 multi-year billing error

“ERA helped me significantly reduce overhead costs when the economy was so weak I feared layoffs would be necessary.”
