Sydney, NSW (PRWEB) March 20, 2009
Permasteelisa is a worldwide leader in the engineering, manufacturing and installation of architectural envelopes, internal partitions and furniture systems. Permasteelisa's Procurement Manager, Pradeep Rupandudi spoke with Australia's Best as to why communication with suppliers is essential.
The Permasteelisa Group is internationally renowned for its capability to devise innovative design systems and architectonic shells. The dynamic company is constantly searching for new and customised technological solutions to expand their impressive portfolio of work.
Permasteelisa operates in four continents through more than 60 companies located in 27 countries and 20 directly and indirectly owned plants.
This global presence enables the Group to take full advantage of business opportunities and compensate for the cyclical trends in individual markets, allowing it to maximise efficiency in the management of resources and investment in new technology.
Throughout Permasteelisa's history the company have designed, produced and installed in excess of seven million m2 of architectural envelopes, encompassing more than one thousand buildings worldwide.
The architectural works built by Permasteelisa, ranging from the Sydney Opera House to Channel 4's headquarters in London showcase the company's ability to deliver outstanding results on high-profile projects. None of which, according to Pradeep, could be done without a strong communication ethic within every aspect of the business.
"Communication to a large extent is the key to the whole operation," explains Pradeep. Communication is imperative for Permasteelisa when dealing with external influences where management have limited control on the outcome.
"When there is a new product on the market in our area of activity, they let us know," says Pradeep. "Our suppliers always keep in touch about price changes, even when they are going down, which is rare. I don't need to make a price check, because I know my suppliers. I have confidence that what I'm looking at will be the best product at the best price."
