Goodrich Corporation has appointed a new indirect buyer to reduce its supply base for indirect supplies by about 20 per cent.

Keith Bray joins the $4-billion-turnover US-based company from London Taxi International Vehicles in Coventry, where he was facilities and services buyer.

At Goodrich, which manufactures aircraft engine control systems, Bray will be looking for savings on its multi-million dollar indirect spend.

He will be working on the purchasing of all indirect materials and commodities at the business's Birmingham site.

Bray will help to make indirect purchasing more strategic at the aerospace company.

"My job will have a strategic focus because indirect is always an area that tends to be overlooked by companies," he said.

"Goodrich has a major spend in production and this has been the main area of focus."
