When Operational Readiness & Success Are the Mission

As the largest provider of maintenance kits and kitting services to the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Land and Maritime, Brighton Cromwell has the experience to effectively manage and grow kitting programs for even the most discerning customer.

With over 1.2 Million kits assembled and delivered, Brighton Cromwell (BC) has a proven track record of performance. BC was an early proponent of the cost and efficiency benefits that kitting provides to the DoD and its agencies.

Brighton Cromwell received its first kit contract in 2004. Today, the company is the largest supplier of maintenance kits to the DLA Land and Maritime and provides customized and routine kits for a variety of platforms for DoD (Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and DLA), OEMs/prime contractors, and foreign military customers.

Brighton Cromwell’s core competency in kitting dates back to BC’s inception. This specialty leverages BC’s strengths in the areas of:

  • Production planning
  • Demand planning
  • Forecasting
  • Consumption analysis
  • Logistics and transportation management
  • Warehouse management
  • Flow control

Customized kits can combine all the tools, parts, and supplies necessary to support the warfighter globally. Our customers turn to us to develop kits that address issues such as:

  • Vehicle maintenance
  • On-demand repairs
  • Vehicle or part upgrades
  • Overhauls
  • Resets
  • Fleet modifications

Benefits of Kitting:

  • Reduces both hard and soft costs
  • Avoids interruptions in the supply chain
  • Minimizes customer procurement
  • Enables single-part/single-order processing for a customer versus dozens of independent requirements
  • Reduces touch labor
  • Limits potential repair-line interruptions
  • Decreases vehicle downtime
  • Increases operational readiness

The ability of Brighton Cromwell’s proprietary SEDNASearch to “host” kits comprising hundreds of parts from dozens of suppliers as one customer-facing part creates operational efficiencies and simplifies the requisitioning process.

Benefits of Using Brighton Cromwell for Your Kitting Project:

  • Increased efficiencies: Minimize time spent pulling parts from inventory or searching for the proper tools. Kits are built and ordered to provide parts when they are needed, so items will not be sitting on your shelf waiting for the rest of the parts to arrive.
  • Reduction of stock: Get only the parts you need, when you need them.
  • Reduced item management: The only SKU you need to manage is the kit itself. You order a single part number, which means only one PO, one set of shipping documents, etc.
  • Increased flexibility: Assembly/repair lines are not tied to inventory locations. Kits are delivered where the work is being done.
  • Lean-tested: You will have the required components and tools delivered to the assembly or repair depot in an organized manner and ensure that you have the efficiencies required for lean processes.
