Symbion wins SMART Award for Procurement Excellence

June 26, 2017

GRA would like to congratulate our client Symbion for winning the 2017 SMART Supply Chain and Logistics Award for Excellence in Procurement.

The prestigious SMART Awards recognise excellence in supply chain and logistics by Australasian based companies and organisations. 

Symbion General Manager Supply Chain, Terry Hayes (pictured), acknowledged the contribution of staff, both past and present in developing 'Engage', the company's world-class supply chain collaboration program. 

“Engage started as a simple scorecard aimed at improving supplier performance, however it has become much more than that,” Mr Hayes said.

“It is now a dynamic, customer centric, end to end supply chain collaboration program that delivers continuous improvement, mutual benefits and improved plans for all stakeholders.”

Symbion Executive General Manager Pharmacy, Brett Barons, said, “Symbion Engage is an important part of our business strategy with our focus on building a world class supply chain. Symbion suppliers form an integral part of that network, which is ultimately aimed at meeting the needs of our customers.”
