Supply Chain Management
Managing, co-ordinating and monitoring supplier performance is important to us as it means we can pass on the benefits of an efficient supply chain to our customers. Our supply chain managers co-ordinate supply and demand across the organisation supported by manufacturing systems that synchronise the flow of processes, materials and information in response to real-time events across our operations.
Working in Partnership
We endeavour to work in partnership with our customers and suppliers, building robust relationships based on shared understanding and objectives that will reduce risk and result in continued service excellence. We work collaboratively to pursue the most competitive solutions for our customers and to maintain an integrated approach to the entire project lifecycle. This involves engaging and maintaining effective communications with all functions of the supply chain. Kenard actively encourages innovation and investment with all its partners to develop competitive value chains.
Supply Chain Relationships Code of Practice
We actively subscribe to the Supply Chain Relationships Code of Practice and are committed to continuously improving supply chain performance and reducing risk. Through the adoption of a robust, closed-loop, relationship management process we strive to:
- Work openly and transparently by sharing information and working collaboratively
- Avoid duplication and waste
- Pursue the most competitive solutions for our customers
- Encourage innovation and investment with all partners to develop competitive value chains
- Maintain an integrated approach to the entire project lifecycle
