PROjEN Know How Wins GSKs Preferred Supplier Contract
PROjEN, a multi-disciplined Project Management Company from Northwich in Cheshire has won GlaxoSmithKline’s Preferred Supplier Contract for all process projects for Chemical Development at their Stevenage and Tonbridge sites.
PROjEN were benchmarked against a number of other project management specialists and were chosen by GSK due to their record in providing an efficient and effective service throughout previous projects undertaken during their 2 ½ year relationship. In particular, the way in which PROjEN consistently kept within both time and budget limits was expressed as a reason of choice by the pharmaceutical specialist, as these elements are essential to the success and progression of GSK. Previous projects managed by PROjEN include a complex £4.3 million Glass Condenser Replacement at the GSK Stevenage site, for which a Bentley Award of Excellence for ‘New Technology Adoption’ has recently been won. PROjEN were also awarded the ACTIVE award for Project of the Year in 2004 for their work on a £5 million R22 Replacement Project.
GSK’s decision to utilise PROjEN will ensure a consistent approach to project delivery and stability of supply. To achieve excellence consistently across the board, PROjEN will oversee all projects dealing with process projects up to the value of £5million in the Chemical Development sector of GSK’s Tonbridge and Stevenage sites.
PROjEN’s Managing Director, John Taylor comments “PROjEN are extremely pleased to be developing our relationship with GSK further and we look forward to growing alongside GSK and building on our recent project successes for mutual benefit. Being management owned, our business culture is very much about working in partnership. It is clear that GSK not only share this culture but also put it into practice.
