Norland Managed Services has held its sixth annual Supply Partner Event, letting its customers meet with Norland’s preferred suppliers. The theme of the event was ‘mitigating supply chain risk’.
The day-long conference brought together over 500 representatives from Norland’s customers with 65 supplier companies as part of Norland’s’collaborative supply management’ approach.
Customers had the chance to network, learn about new products and innovations, and find out about what is happening in the marketplace. The suppliers, many of which are small to medium enterprises, had a platform from which to grow and develop their businesses by learning about potential customers’ needs and expectations.
Norland procurement director Rachel Lee added: “Norland’s quality and safety standards are so fundamental to our business that it was important to use our annual supplier showcase to demonstrate how we are weaving safety standards into our whole supply chain. Our customers need to know that Norland are doing everything we can to minimise the suffering, costs, and reputational damage that safety lapses can cause.”
