Procurement Services Success!
 
The Procurement Services Department have had a flying start to the year, having secured a major contract from the Maritime Equipment Transformation IPT (MoD), a contract for non-destructive test equipment, and various other orders from valuable customers. All of which have helped us achieve a very healthy return and we’re pleased to report, an increase on last year’s order intake!
  
We’re sure you will all agree that this is exceptional and we’d like to publically thank the members of the Procurement Services Team whose hard work over the last 12 months has had a direct result in securing this phenomenal order intake. It just doesn’t happen without due effort and dedication.
 
Thank you June, Clare, Emma, Ron and Nial, keep up the good work and lets see what we can achieve by the end of the year.

This is the first van in the CMCA(UK) fleet and the reason we have invested in a suitable vehicle for the movement of ESD sensitive products is to further assist the risk mitigation controls required by our customers. The van has been designed to accommodate specific ESD packaging which secures the product and eliminates movement during transit.
 

Last week CMCA(UK) attended the Hereford & Worcester Chamber of Commerce Business Expo and we're proud to report that we won a prize! Pictured is Stacey Redman of SME LLP presenting Rob Crawford, CMCA(UK) MD with his prize for coming top of the leaderboard in the SME scalextric challenge, which will be donated to a charity raffle.

We like to do our bit for Charity and this year it’s very much about supporting our staff in physical challenges to raise funds for charity. Jamie, one of our Codification Specialists is hard at work preparing for the CLIC Sargent Paris to London Centenary Cycle and would very much appreciate your help in reaching his target. CLIC Sargent is a charity for children and young people with cancer and is very close to CMCA(UK)’s heart as they helped one of our team cope when his young daughter was diagnosed with leukaemia.
 
It is a very worthy charity and if you’d like to make a donation you can easily donate online here or by texting JAMI87 and the amount you wish to donate to 70070.
For those of you who may have dealt with James our Stores Manager or Sam our Lead Buyer, you may know that they’ve been expecting their first child. We are pleased to announce that just 3 days after going on maternity leave Sam and James welcomed a healthy baby son into the world. Congratulations to the McCann family.
