New Ambassador Making Hay

by | Feb 7, 2018

The Supply Chain Academy’s Alex Mortimer was out-and-about last week,  in his new role as the Institute of Director’s (IOD) Ambassador for Supply Chain and Global Trade for Herts and Essex.

Alex’s first port of call was an IOD event that included a tour of the New Holland 100 acre site in Basildon, Essex, which employs over 1,000 people.

As a global brand of agricultural machinery, New Holland products include tractors, combine harvesters, balers, forage harvesters, self propelled sprayers, haying tools, seeding equipment, hobby tractors, utility vehicles and implements, as well as grape harvesters.

New Holland makes tens of thousands of tractors every year using 600 tonnes of material every day. Since 1964, more than 1.6 million high quality machines have rolled off the two-kilometre production line, so an efficient global supply chain is essential.

 

Alex couldn’t resist climbing aboard one of the tractors (above), while also finding time to share details of the outstanding global business led solutions that the Supply Chain Academy provides.

SCA is currently travelling around the UK – Leeds this week and Birmingham/Coventry shortly after – and as the leaders in supply chain education and thought leadership, we would welcome the opportunity to meet business leaders along the way.

To meet with Alex or his team then please do not hesitate to get in touch by calling 01708 259450 or emailing am@supplychainacademy.org.uk.
