Russell Lawrence, Supply chain Manager, continued with proceedings and raised vital topics such as why we need to work more efficiently with our supply chain and what we look for in a supply. Working closer with our supply chain will not just benefit CVU but LoHAC too.
“This event was a great success and provided collaboration with our Supply Chain partners. Having a competent and integrated Supply Chain is critical to the success of this Contract. Events such as these give us the opportunity to reinforce this message, inform our suppliers of our future plans and gain supplier feedback to continue to drive efficiency and innovation to deliver a first class service”, said Supply Chain Manager, Russell Lawrence.
Many people from across the business participated in the day, including, Rob Simmons PPD Schemes Manager, Emma Sampayo Communications Officer, Health and Safety Manager Jason Howard and Tunnels and Structures Manger Barry Warner. CVU emphasised the importance of ED& I as well as being one brand; LoHAC.
“We found the event, areas and topics covered really useful for gaining greater insight into the CVU operation and your role and challenges working within the LOHAC. The day was also an excellent opportunity for us to meet other suppliers during the break out session and also talk with the speakers and some senior management within CVU. It was very
positive day for us that can only help continue to improve our on-going working relationship,” said Peter Coffield, Director Sun Hill Surveying and Engineering Ltd.
