We have gained a ‘shop window’ with companies in the oil and gas sector by joining Achilles FPAL – an online community which is used by over 90 buyers from oil and gas companies.
We will now be able to share on an online platform its capabilities and performance record 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 Achilles FPAL community serves the procurement needs of the wider European oil & gas market, whilst maintaining firm roots within North Sea operations. Achilles FPAL is an industry-run community of operators, contractors and suppliers working in collaboration to promote a fair and transparent supply chain.
Gary Summerskill, General Manager for Delta Pacific Valves believes by joining Achilles FPAL not only will it increase our exposure to presently un-tapped markets but also ensure we continue to grow in-line with our present business strategy.
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, Delta Pacific Valves 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. It provides a vital shop window for suppliers that can offer innovative technology or services at a time when there is great focus on value and efficiency. Achilles FPAL also has a unique two way Performance Feedback feature that allows suppliers to give and receive feedback so that high performing suppliers can demonstrate their track record to customers”.
