As a leading manufacturer of heavy trucks, buses, coaches and engines for industrial and marine applications, Scania is a major supplier to British industry.
Additionally, the company provides a wide range of complementary and ancillary services in support of its products and customers through its 90-plus-strong network of service centres.
This client, although very profitable, was acutely aware that many areas of its overhead cost base had not been addressed and were not entirely under control, due to a lack of dedicated resource.
Working alongside the group purchasing manager, ADR had an implant client relationship manager with responsibility for managing specific categories of spend through the strategic sourcing process and then into supplier relationship management.
ADR delivered in excess of £500k of annual savings on a vast number of expenditure areas including, oil and gas, landlines, marketing print, general stationary, IT consumables, mobiles, office cleaning and printed stationary. Contracts and SLAs we established with all suppliers to drive compliance and supplier performance.
