At French Gerleman, we strive to listen to your needs and stay in front of evolving industry trends. Customers have requested better access to real-time inventory availability, and it’s a trend we expect to grow. We’ve enhanced the French Gerleman website to show product availability at Rockwell Automation’s distribution center in addition to our local and regional branch inventory.
The current inventory grid on the item detail pages shows up-to-date availability at the Rockwell Automation distribution center after login. Customers not logged in will see “In Stock” or the manufacturer row will not display if there is no quantity on hand at their distribution center(s). This feature is only available to customers who reside within our Rockwell Automation distribution authorization boundaries*.

How Will This Help You?
Rockwell Automation maintains a large inventory and, this feature allows more transparency into factory stock levels. In addition to French Gerleman’s extensive inventory, you can access real time availability of factory stock through our website. Now it is easy for customers with French Gerleman online accounts to see what Rockwell Automation has in stock.
This enhancement allows you access to all pertinent Rockwell Automation product information such as videos, item details, product specs, configuration pages, drawings and certifications through frenchgerleman.com.
More Manufacturers to Come
Rockwell Automation is our first partner that we have integrated this new data into our website, but we are looking forward to adding more manufacturers’ availability to our website in the future. As we expand to include other manufacturers’ inventory on our site, our goal is to provide visibility and access to items not in our comprehensive, $25 million inventory. This will help simplify the online purchasing process to save you time.
Our goal is to provide greater visibility to you to see additional products stocked at our manufacturer partners’ locations. If they have it in stock, it’s likely you’ll have your product delivered within a week or two. We’re more than happy to answer your availability calls, but now we can also provide you with a more robust, efficient online experience.
