IVRI (Industrial Vendor Reduction Incorporated) was founded by Scott Dobbeck in 1998 and designed to be a "go to" solution company for those customers that had shrinking engineering and purchasing groups. The company has become a valuable partner to its customers by providing dependable value-added engineering, purchasing, and inventory control functions. Scott worked as a Sole Proprietor until mid-2000, whereby he was joined by a partner, Sam Terroso, whose experience was in the Process Control/Instrumentation industry. Their mission was to become an integral part of their customers' daily industrial equipment requirements. A certified quality program, including parts inspection & an automated database, consigned inventory programs, and comprehensive kitting services have further enhanced IVRI's value to its customer base. In addition, IVRI also provides a wide range of manufactured parts, including those involving flame cut, plasma cut, milled, turned, ground, waterjet, formed and sheet metal (stamp & die). Both high CNC volume & low manual volume parts are now a common & competitive offering. The ability to provide efficient & flexible solutions has carried IVRI on an explosive growth rate in the past (16) years.
IVRI serves a wide range of industries, including but not limited to the Power, Chemical, Food Processing, OEM and Pharmaceutical/Bio-Processing markets. Within those industries, we pursue the End User, Engineering Houses, Mechanical Contractors, and OEM's.
