Bradman Lake receives “Technical Procurement Supplier of the Year” award from Nestlé Business Services
Rockhill USA August 16, 2012. Over the last few months, the Nestlé Business Services’ (NBS) Technical Procurement team has undertaken a rigorous assessment of its major suppliers in the areas of Capital Equipment, Maintenance, Repair & Operations (MRO) and Contract Manufacturing. From a starting point of over 50 Capital Equipment suppliers, the Bradman Lake Group came to the top of the ranking and was awarded the inaugural “NBS Technical Procurement Supplier of the Year” award in the area of Capital Equipment.
