The A.S.S.E.T. Advantage Program was formulated to meet our
customers' needs and respond to the pressures of the
constantly evolving marketplace. The A.S.S.E.T. Advantage
Program offers numerous advantages, but there are four
These four are cash flows, logistics/on-time delivery,
technical expertise (as needed) and communication.
A main focus of the A.S.S.E.T. program is to help our
customers improve their cash flow by focusing on inventory
planning, pricing and product grouping. It is not in
the best interest of Vitusa Products nor our customers to
purchase at a premium or to purchase inefficiently.
Excess or idle inventory has a negative impact on cash flow,
as does overpayment. Under this program, customers
only have to purchase 24,000 pounds of any combination of
ingredients to constitute a truckload, providing better cash
management and reliable, "just-in-time" delivery.
Vitusa Products extends this "Red Carpet Treatment" to all
of our customers, regardless of size.
The A.S.S.E.T. Advantage Program offers logistical
expertise, strategically placed warehouses and order
flexibility. The program goes beyond meeting the
customer's routine supply demands, as it is designed to
react to emergencies. The customer has the option to

management and capitalized on our flexibility and
versatility, and as a result improved overall cash flows.

certainly do not have all the answers. However, Vitusa
Products has the ability to utilize a vast technical network
that includes not only our own technical resources, but also
those of manufacturers, independent laboratories and of
The most undervalued resource is communication. The
better informed we are about a customer's volatile
production demands, the better we can serve the customer.
The better informed the customer is concerning world wide
raw material markets, the better the customer can plan,
react and minimize the effect of unwelcome events. At
Vitusa Products, Inc., we consider it our responsibility to
keep the customer informed and cognizant of those things
that effect the company's well being.
