Supplier Networking Event

At Pelican, we pride ourselves in continuous development and building our knowledge in order to provide procurement expertise to our customers.

On 10 March, Pelican hosted a Supplier Networking Event at our head office in Farnborough, which provided our team of experts the opportunity to learn from our key supply partners across various non-food categories including catering equipment, linen, cleaning and chemicals, pest control and water machines.

“We got the opportunity to learn more about product innovations and solutions. It was a fantastic day and we look forward to showcasing these solutions and sharing knowledge with our customers,” said Graham Coles, Procurement Director.

Suppliers in attendance included Nisbets, Mitre Linen, Diversey, Rentokil Initial and Waterlogic. All were provided with the opportunity to display and discuss their latest products and solutions.

“The team from Diversey felt the day was a great success,” said Neil Durrant, National Account Manager at Diversey Ltd. “We were able to demonstrate the level of support we can offer, and the expertise available within our business to help support the Pelican team and their clients.”
