PROjEN Successful in Retaining GSK Preferred Supplier Status
PROjEN, a multi-disciplined Project Management Company from Northwich in Cheshire has retained its GlaxoSmithKline’s Preferred Supplier Status for all Chemical Development Projects at GSK’s Harlow, Ware, Tonbridge and Stevenage Sites.
PROjEN were benchmarked against a number of other project management specialists and were chosen by GSK due to their track record in delivering projects on time and to budget during their 6 year relationship. In particular, GSK recognised PROjEN’s strong client focus, flexible approach and the quality of the embedded team members. Previous projects managed by PROjEN include a complex £4.3 million Glass Condenser Replacement at the GSK Stevenage site, for which the Company won a Bentley Award of Excellence for ‘New Technology Adoption’. PROjEN were also awarded the European Construction Institute’s ACTIVE awards for Project of the Year in 2004 and 2006, respectively, for their work on a £5 million R22 Replacement Project and the £4.3 million glass condenser replacement project. PROjEN’s project work was also integral to GSK successfully obtaining FDA approval for their new product “ PROMACTA ® (eltrombopag)” All past projects and information on the awards won by PROjEN in recent years can be viewed on the regularly updated website www.projen.co.uk
GSK’s decision to continue to utilise PROjEN will ensure a consistent approach to project delivery and stability of supply. Together they will also be able to build on the excellent Health & Safety record achieved to date and exhibited through PROjEN’s 8th consecutive RoSPA Gold Award.
PROjEN’s Managing Director, Martin Seabrook 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.”
