Marketing supply
chain excellence

Every year, we source over 500 million items from over 100 countries
on behalf of our clients, through our network of over 2500 suppliers.


We will devise a tailored, strategic procurement roadmap that drives direct savings, increases
efficiency, reduces time to market and manages your risk. This is delivered by a dual approach
of sourcing in-country, using our local expert teams, coupled with our regional and global hubs,
strategically sourcing from Low Cost Countries and supported by our in-house
Point of Sale and Promotional Merchandise Design teams.

Whether locally or globally, we work with best-in-class suppliers to deliver the highest quality in
standards and the latest in innovation.

Sustainable cost reduction and efficiency

Our operating model enables us strategically to source and competitively procure all types of marketing materials on your behalf. We use our expertise and technology to drive product reuse, right-size and re-engineer production, standardisation and harmonisation, delivering efficiency and sustainable cost reduction.

Reduced time to market

Our technology platform enables us to optimise critical-path timelines to capitalise on offshore or low cost country sourcing, while our local supply chain ensures the ultimate in flexibility for urgent requirements.
