Brammer will use its extensive buying power to supply eight EDF Energy sites across the UK with products which engineers can call upon when required. This will result in significant cost savings for the company, as well as optimising the procurement of plant spares and minimising downtime for the energy supplier’s operations as a whole.
Gary Biggam, Business Manager at Brammer, commented: “EDF Energy Nuclear Generation was searching for a company that could offer a first class procurement and inventory management service, and we are thrilled to have been chosen as their supplier. Our knowledge and experience within the energy sector will prove invaluable when managing EDF Energy’s inventory providing spares availability when required to meet operational requirements.
“Our ability to offer a 24-hour service, as well as our extensive portfolio of products – including bearings, mechanical power transmission products, pneumatics, hydraulics, seals and industrial automation products – means that we can meet EDF Energy’s requirements quickly and efficiently.”
