Diageo awards Brammer MRO contract for brewing facilities

Brammer, a UK supplier of manufacturing, repair and overhaul (MRO) products and services, has clinched a major contract to supply a full range of MRO products to brewing and distilling company Diageo.

The deal covers 37 facilities in Scotland, four in Northern Ireland and the packaging, canning and bottling plant at Runcorn in Cheshire.

Following a highly competitive process involving several MRO suppliers, Brammer won the contract based on its ability to offer a complete partnership approach that would offer significant added value beyond simply saving costs on individual components.

It has already enabled Diageo to substantially reduce its supplier base in many MRO product categories such as bearings and helped reduce purchasing administration costs through an innovative self-billing system.
