WINDSOR, Conn.– Kaman Industrial Technologies, a distributor of industrial parts, and Predictive Service, LLC, a provider of predictive maintenance and engineering services (reliability services), announced a collaboration between the two companies today, whereby Kaman will distribute reliability services from Predictive Service in the industrial distribution market.
The agreement allows Kaman to offer complete solutions across North America that include industrial components, inventory management and reliability services through its more than 200 service centers and extensive sales force.
