Challenges/ Problems to be solved:

  • For MRO in Europe
  • Reduce the huge number of suppliers to a few category champions with a wide enough product portfolio, great capabilities and a decent geographical coverage


Winning MRO Sourcing Strategy

  • Selecting and engaging with the best suppliers (categories
    champions) with the right product / brand portfolio, the
    appropriate geographical coverage and the right set of
    capabilities (Technical, Logistical, E-Procurement, Reporting,
    Managerial (Ability to manage the client as a real Key account
    and commit to generating Operational Cost Savings) ).
  • Reducing the number of suppliers from over > 1500 to less
    than 12

Successful Transformation Project

  • An Industrial MRO Project is not only a Procurement
    initiative but has to be managed as a transformation project,
    because it involves allot of Stake Holders and changes the
    relationship with the remaining suppliers.
  • Setting up the right governance for this project was essential:
    from Top Management Attention (CPO / CFO) to having a
    collaborative approach involving the key Stake Holders was
    essential for the success of this project.
  • The Key Stake Holders: Plant Management, Maintenance &
    Engineering, Store Management and local Procurement. We
    defined benefits for every Stake Holder to have their
    engagement and support throughout the project.
