Lithotech’s Supply Management service enables branches, retail outlets and other remote business units to operate more efficiently – it facilitates decentralised ordering under central control and reduces operating costs.

Supply Management is the one-stop, all-in-one service that leaves you to get on with business.

Orders are received and processed, and items are picked and packed.
Orders are distributed to the branch.
