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, Singapore and Europe. 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.
