Cambridgeshire based P&M Pumps Ltd has gained a ‘shop window’ with companies in the utilities sector by joining Achilles UVDB an online community that enables companies to manage supply chain risk and comply with EU regulations. P&M Pumps Ltd, which has 7 staff and provides sole UK distributorship of Vaughan Chopper pumps in the UK and Ireland, will now be able to share on an online platform of its capabilities in key business areas, such as health & safety and compliance.
Achilles UVDB is used by over 1000 buyers from over 40 UK utilities companies to find suitably qualified suppliers. Achilles works to ensure suppliers’ information is accurate via data validation, desktop and physical audits. Several buying organisations also use the community as an approved mechanism for tendering for contracts above and below EU threshold contracts, streamlining the procurement process.
Andy Parr, Director for P&M Pumps said: “We are delighted to have received accreditation to Achilles UVDB following many years of growth in the wastewater and renewable energy sector. We look forward to further expansion and see accreditation as a means of providing reassurance to potential customers who are committed to obtain goods and services only from Achilles accredited suppliers.”
Tom Grand, Regional Director for Achilles in the UK and Ireland, said: “By joining the biggest utilities supply chain risk management community in the UK, P&M Pumps Ltd has put itself in the best position to be considered for work with UK utility buyers.”
