Events Terms and Conditions

CPD 2Rolls-Royce has progressed from being a medium sized Midlands based engineering company to a global business competing in a hostile marketplace, and growth is planned to continue.  Whilst maintaining its standing as a major employer in the area, significant demands are placed on the supply chain required to support current and future growth, both in the UK and overseas. 

This presentation will examine the market in which Rolls-Royce operates, and how the company is adapting its purchasing organisation to meet customer demands and the threat from competition, securing and developing a supply chain capable of supporting this growth, and how it is developing the role of the purchasing professional it employs to help achieve this.
