What does Synovos mean?

Synovos

The word Synovos is derived from the Greek “Syn-“ which means “together or integrated,” and the Latin “-novos” which means “new or fresh.” Combined, Synovos can be defined as “the new integration.” This is spot on, in describing the value our clients experience.

The Synovos tagline, Supply & Assets. In Sync., succinctly communicates our service offerings – Supply Chain, Asset Management and Technology. It represents our evolution to what we are today – a comprehensive solutions provider.

Synovos History

Synovos was founded in 1987 to help companies reduce indirect supply costs while increasing efficiency and quality. Originally founded as Storeroom Solutions, our focus was on MRO storerooms design, management and purchasing.

As our client base grew to include more global companies requiring enterprise supply chain support, Synovos expanded into Canada, Puerto Rico, Mexico and Singapore. Our service offerings also expanded far beyond the storeroom. We now provide a full range of integrated supply chain, asset and technology services.

Today, Synovos also has service capabilities for its global clients everywhere – in Europe, South America, Asia and the Middle East. We purchase two million SKUs and annually manage more than $400 million in spend.
