PCL has appointed Aaron Williams to the role of senior buyer, with focus on supply chain efficiency.
Williams joins PCL following roles at Anixter, the global distributor of network and security, electrical, electronic and utility power solutions; and Victor Marine, specialists in the design and manufacture of tank washing machines, gas freeing fans and oily water separators.
He spent 11 years at Anixter, working his way up from junior buyer to category lead, dealing with big contracts including Babcock and BAE, ensuring they had the MRO products required to build ships and aeroplanes, from PPE to industrial consumables such as tools, seals and gaskets.
Williams then became purchasing manager at Victor Marine, becoming heavily involved in operations and responsible for all procurement.
A statement from PCL said: “His extensive strategic experience within a massive global operation, combined with operational skills developed at a smaller manufacturing company makes Aaron ideal for the position of senior buyer at PCL, where he has taken charge of daily sourcing, negotiation, procurement and logistics of goods and services.”
Williams commented: “PCL has the structure and support network needed to help you work effectively and make progress. I feel I can make a difference and see the benefit of that difference.
“Choosing key suppliers where you have a relationship means they are more willing to support with rebates and stock holding and you can then do the same for the customer, so there are no gaps in the supply chain.”
