MTD gains ‘shop window’ with European Oil and Gas buyers
MTD has gained a ‘shop window’ with companies in the oil and gas sector by joining Achilles FPAL – an online community which is used by over 100 buyers from oil and gas companies.
MTD will now be able to share its capabilities in key business areas, such as quality, health and safety and financial performance.
Achilles works to ensure suppliers’ information is accurate via data validation and desktop and physical audits. The FPAL community serves the procurement needs of the wider European oil & gas market, whilst maintaining firm roots within North Sea operations. FPAL is an industry-run community of operators, contractors and suppliers working in collaboration to promote a fair and transparent supply chain.
Clemens Verhoeven, Water Quality Manager for MTD: ‘Since all major customers and suppliers are registered on this international platform, registration at FPAL is crucial for the further development of the offshore industry. We are pleased that we meet the requirements of this platform and that we are admitted and registered.’
Malcolm Wilson, Director for Achilles FPAL, said: ‘By joining the biggest supply chain risk management community supporting the North Sea and European oil and gas industry, MTD has put itself in the best position to be considered for work with major oil and gas buyers. Achilles FPAL is a simple and successful model which has operated since 1997 by streamlining procurement and reducing cost for suppliers and buyers.’
