WIND POWER On the wind power market, Rexel offers customized solutions that range from the simple marketing of cables and components to an array of integrated services cover- ing everything from procurement to inventory management, assem- bly and delivery. The Group s American subsidi- ary Gexpro Services, is consolidat- ing its position on the wind power market by offering a service for the

pre-assembly of the internal com- ponents of wind turbine towers. The factory-mounted assemblies, duly labeled and packed, are deliv- ered directly to the customer s site. For a wind power project in China comprising 800 turbines for exam- ple, Gexpro s involvement made it possible to consolidate the deliv- eries of 25 suppliers and reduce the deadlines, thus enabling the customer to save US$ 1.4 million per year.
