Technical Support


Every application comes with a different challenge. Whether you're a job shop, or a manufacturer specializing in unique production, factors such as tool life, cost of labor, and time of production matter. Any distributor can sell you a product, but it takes experience to adapt to the day-to-day hurdles of the machining world. With over 50 years experience in servicing a broad resume of local industries and applications, our turnkey approach to in-house technical support and product awareness allows you the customer the time to worry about what matters, your business.

Inventory Consignment


J. Howard Kennedy Company offers a full array of consignment options to make ordering easier.

Give us a call if you're interested in a free evaluation.

Vending Machine


Our vending services through Supply Pro allow your machinists the ease of in-house product availability without the hassle of maintaining inventory levels. Simply use what you need and we'll handle the rest. Vending can serve as a surprisingly affordable alternative to the time you spend on ordering inventory.
