Procurement

Years of procurement experience has enabled Addison to develop both an efficient in-house purchasing system, accredited to ISO 9000:2000, and an extensive preferred supplier database. Term and alliance agreements with negotiated discounts are in place with many suppliers and sub-contractors, allowing us to pass on cost savings to you, our clients.

As the result of its stand-alone ISO accreditation, Addison purchasing can be used independently from other parts of our organisation on a ‘cost-plus’ basis. Purchase and contract specifications can either be developed from scratch, from a pro forma or from existing specifications.

Clients embarking upon individual investment projects can benefit significantly from Addison’s greater buying power for engineering goods and services, which are fully inclusive of purchasing administration, vendor and bid evaluation (technical and commercial), inspection, expediting and goods receipt services.

We have experience of purchasing all main plant equipment, in-line items, instrumentation and specials required to build and service process plants.  We also are experienced in executing various installation contracts, such as mechanical and piping (M&P), Electrical installation (including containment) and insulation and can call on a wealth of experience upfront to help ensure we select the right supplier on the right contract.

Main plant equipment procurement can be a daunting task but we can say with confidence we have built up solid experience in high value/high risk procurement. Specific types of equipment include:

  • Glass lined reactors, vessels and receivers
  • Conical dryers, heat exchangers and condensers
  • Pressure vessels (ASME Sec.VIII, BS 5500, IS 2825, TEMA etc.) and columns
