We are committed to value-added integrated supply solutions that deliver measurable ROI, efficiency improvements, reduced inventory costs, and increased machine uptime.
Our approach to pricing is centered on a simple service fee structure that allows for the purchase of products at supplier cost. Clients can also choose to purchase products at a traditional mark-up. Both approaches are guided by our commitment to complete information transparency.
At RGB, we place a premium on developing partnerships with our clients and suppliers. Notable supplier partners include AutoCrib, one of the leading industrial vending innovators and Affiliated Distributors (AD), the largest wholesale buying and marketing group in North America.
Our commitment to information transparency and value-added analytics is demonstrated via our web-based portal, MyRGB. Your customized portal provides supply chain, cost savings, and product usage information designed to help reduce the cost of manufacturing plant-by-plant.
For over three decades, we have built RGB with the vision of our founders, the experience of our leaders, and the strength of our people. Our team of integrated supply professionals is passionate about making manufacturers more productive every day.

We optimize your supplier base to meet your specific supply needs.
An essential commitment of RGB is to find the best product, at the best price, and in the right quantity to meet your production schedule demands. But the best can mean a lot. Our sourcing specialists, tooling experts, and information analysts work diligently to optimally balance costs, lead times, unique supply requirements, and opportunities for consolidation.
R.G. BREWTON is a proud member of Affiliated Distributors, which enables us to provide a robust selection of tools and supplies to meet your plant's diverse indirect material needs.
At RGB, we are supplier neutral. We're solely interested in the best product, at the best price for the specific need of your plants.
We balance the needs of plant-level decision makers with national and global purchasing departments.
We eagerly pursue relationships with new suppliers to find the best new technologies for modern manufacturing environments.
We regularly staff client sites with full-time sourcing experts.
Our experts attend production meetings and collaborate with engineering teams to meet the needs of new production runs and changing demands.
Our approach to the management of sourcing requirements enables scheduled tool tests and needs assessment to be a routine part of shop floor activities.
We organize and maintain all data needed for procurement of your indirect supplies. By managing supplier selection, order placement, prompt shipment and stocking, and consolidated billing, RGB minimizes your transaction costs.
At RGB, we believe in our method of contract pricing management and consolidated billing services. Learn more about the value our clients have realized from this approach.
We organize client, supplier, and manufacturer part numbers to ensure that:
- You know what you’re using;
- Sourcing knows what they're procuring;
- Purchasing knows what they're buying;
- Suppliers know what they're shipping.
We establish the most effective means of processing purchase orders and invoices by integrating software / ERPs where possible.
We have teams of associates specifically committed to the execution and management of spot-buy procurement requests.
We manage all the exchanges of information, products, and payments between customers, distributors, and suppliers.
We consolidate invoices from different sources.
We provide one go-to source for managing discrepancies, tracking shipments, and acknowledging order receipts.
Our inventory management systems reduce untimely restocking by monitoring usage trends to guarantee the availability of product while minimizing carrying and ordering costs.
RGB believes that developing a smart just-in-time inventory strategy is key to an efﬁcient manufacturing process.
Consigned Inventory Management
We research as many different data sources as possible to understand our client's historical product usage:
- Purchase History
- Invoice History
- Production Levels
We understand the availability of supply:
- Supplier Consignment & Lead Times
- Pre-existing Client Inventory
- RGB Consignment
- Expediting Options
- Acceptable Product Substitutes
We rigorously balance the factors driving product supply and demand to know when and how much to reorder by generating clear data signals.
RGB offers clients the flexibility to manage product on a consigned basis. Typically clients are billed for product at the time of stocking or the time of issuance.
Consigned agreements are established for frequently used items. These agreements are contract dependent and negotiated to fit the unique needs of each client.
A lack of accessibility or security surrounding your plant’s indirect materials causes unnecessary restocking costs and plant inefﬁciencies. We incorporate a point-of-use system and full time onsite teams of integrated supply specialists to make your supplies accessible and secure across all locations.

Our integrated supply chain analytics service provides full visibility into the usage, costs, and savings across your entire indirect materials supply chain.
