At Clark, procurement is more than simply buying inventory: it is carrying a product through its entire life cycle. We find the products, negotiate costs and programs, set pricing, decide how to market brands, and manage inventory. Because we follow products from start to finish, we are able to create and execute efficient strategies to more effectively increase our share of the market.
