CAM2 and Smitty's Form Strategic Alliance


Cam2 International (CAM2) and Smitty's Supply (Smitty's) have formed a strategic alliance whereby the Smitty's Roseland Louisiana facility will play a leading role in CAM2's efforts to expand its service area and improve its products competitive logistical reach well beyond the effective range of its current blending locations in Hammond IN. and Allentown PA.  


But according to CAM2, this innovative and groundbreaking alliance is much more than the typical toll blending relationships seen in our industry. In fact, JobbersWorld is told the structure of this alliance may set a new standard for how blenders and marketers work together to provide quality products and services.

 

According to Garry Rooney, Senior VP, Special Projects and Opportunity Development with CAM2, "Our alliance with Smitty's allows our two companies to work closely together to improve both of our processes, operations and logistics."  Relative to the production of products for CAM2 at Smitty's Roseland, LA facility, Rooney says, "We view that portion of our agreement as a huge step forward in the typical structure, quality and overall management when compared to other toll blending agreements so common to our industry."  

 

One example of how it differs is seen in how closely CAM2 and Smitty's management team's work together.  Rooney says, "To manage the CAM2 product production at Roseland, we have placed a highly qualified CAM2 employee (Andrew Bennett) at the Roseland facility as CAM2's on-site Director of Technology and Quality Assurance."  Bennett's responsibility is to manage and oversee the entire order receipt, production, quality control, shipping process for CAM2 products at Roseland. According to Rooney, "Bennett will process the receipt of each CAM2 order, the production of products for each order including on-going and redundant testing of each production run and the shipping of each order in a timely manner that meets or exceeds our customers' expectations." Additionally, Rooney says, "Andrew and his manager are responsible for the development, monitoring and continued improvement of CAM2's proprietary product formulations used by Roseland for all CAM2 production."

 

Rooney concludes by saying, "We believe the Roseland facility is one of the finest blending facilities in the U.S. and our Strategic Alliance with Smittys at Roseland has been a great asset for both companies and will play an important role in helping CAM2 achieve its strategic objectives."

CAM2 offers a wide array of premium quality products that includes an extensive and complete line of automotive, commercial and industrial lubricants, greases and gear lubes as well as a full line of Anti-Freeze products and now CAM2 offers DEF.
