Entec International, UK-based Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO) procurement and supply chain specialists, have appointed Suraj Muhammad Talha as Customer Relationship Manager in Egypt, as the company expands its service delivery to global FMCG clients across Africa and the Middle East.
Suraj, who has spent five years working in the FMCG sector, brings with him valuable experience of global procurement and project management. He will be part of a growing team responsible for rolling out Entec’s 3PMRO service in the region to some of the world’s largest manufacturers of snacks and non-alcoholic drinks.
“It’s a great honour to work closely with these high-profile customers in Egypt, helping to keep their production running effectively while reducing their operational costs,” Suraj says. “The Egyptian market is a regional hub for diverse businesses and has access to large key markets through various trade agreements with the USA, Europe as well as Middle Eastern and African countries. Entec International already has a strong presence in the region, as sole 3PMRO partner for many well recognized manufacturers. The company is growing strongly in this market and is currently in advanced negotiations to provide our services to more local customers. I’m very much looking forward to playing my part in Entec’s continued success story in Egypt.”
CEO at Entec, Mike Robinson, explains, “Global brand businesses with complex manufacturing and packaging operations in challenging markets generate a constant demand for maintenance spares. To meet this demand, they tie up millions of dollars in spares inventory, much of which is excess to need. In addition, they use hundreds of local and global suppliers, all with different ways of working, variable trading terms and requiring payment in multiple currencies”.
“Entec’s 3PMRO service simplifies this process; As the single source of supply we manage the entire supply chain, from demand to point of use, match spares usage with consumption rates to deliver optimised inventory, visibility, control and compliance. Overall, our 3PMRO service improves the customers return on capital employed, increases efficiency, reduces waste and drives down operational costs.
Suraj’s appointment in Egypt will strengthen our regional team and help us replicate the gains we’ve achieved for our clients in other parts of the world.”
