“EEC truly appreciates Five Alarm Distribution Consulting’s commitment to our inventory management project. Services extended far past what they were hired for as a result of their ability to see weakness and needs within our companies structure. Their strong communication skills helped to make each interaction productive; organizational strategies, like keeping meticulous records proved their effective business practices. Always responding quickly to all our inquiries; providing multiple ways to connect directly with the owner, Ross Barnes of Five Alarm who interacted professionally and courteously. Five Alarm’s onsite visit fostered a positive workplace culture, helping our team work together more effectively, while offering continuous opportunities to learn. Motivating independent improvement, while encouraging a positive outlook.”

“The potential for growth within our company increased because of all that we learned from Five Alarm. Always thinking ahead to anticipate challenges and formulate solutions; excellent critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Noticing details and taking the necessary action, creating and presenting high-quality work. Ross Barnes has an infectious personality; he impacted myself personally more than I can say especially within my working environment. There is not another company I would recommend more than Five Alarm Distribution Consulting. The impact their services made will be felt for years to come; thankful we chose Five Alarm!”

“As a start up, we required a scalable solution to support our retail/manufacturing diversity and growth potential while maintaining simplicity and continuity.”

His carefully crafted workflows and processes were welcomed and appreciated in a global environment.
 Ross is a unique logistics professional that can take a concept and build a sustainable cost effective solution – from start to finish.  I would  recommend his services to solve any of your distribution and logistics challenges.”

“While I was at Dyson Canada, Ross managed our 3pl distribution during which time Dyson experienced significant and sustained growth each year.”

To keep up with our growth, Ross had to modify and develop strategies to deal with our ever changing requirements. Whether it was new product launches, end of month rushes, Black Friday, Boxing Week or peak season, Ross always made sure we were able to hit out sales targets without fail.

“Newfoundland Central Health hired Five Alarm Distribution Consulting to assist in making recommendations to implement 5S and improve our inventory management processes at our central DC that supports our hospitals across the Island.  As a result of Five Alarms Distribution Consulting’s recommendations, we have seen considerable improvements throughout our operations!  To be more specific, our picking time has been reduced by 25% and overall productivity has seen a significant increase, and we have only partially implemented the full recommendation!   I recommend their services with full confidence!”
