Crimson & Co, the global supply chain consultancy, has announced that Australia’s Supply Chain Cover is now fully integrated into its business. This is the culmination of a strong working relationship, which will allow the global business to build on its offering of best-in-class supply chain consultancy for global, UK and Australasian businesses.
Crimson & Co embarked on a global expansion strategy in 2014, which included opening a new office in Singapore and being joined in North America and India by The Progress Group and in Australia and New Zealand by Supply Chain Cover. In 2015 it expanded into Latin America by opening an office in Brazil. Following 16 months together, Supply Chain Cover is now taking the next step and becoming fully part of the Crimson & Co global business.
As of 25th February 2016, Supply Chain Cover will officially become part of the Crimson & Co business for Australia and New Zealand. Located in Melbourne and Sydney, Crimson & Co’s Australasian operation will advise clients across Australia and New Zealand on procurement, planning, manufacturing, logistics, supply chain systems and supply chain strategy.
Crimson & Co’s operations in Australia and New Zealand will be led by Frans Verheij and Peter Quine. Both directors have extensive experience in worldwide supply chain development and consultancy and head up a team with over 200 years’ supply chain experience across Australia and New Zealand.
Crimson & Co’s Global CEO, Richard Powell, commented: “Today’s announcement celebrates the success of the particularly close relationship between Supply Chain Cover and Crimson & Co over the past year. We share a common approach to consulting and a single belief that the only thing that matters is making a real difference for our clients. We are thrilled that Supply Chain Cover has integrated into our global business.”
Supply Chain Cover founder Frans Verheij commented: “We are building on the strong foundation and exceptional team we have developed over the past eight years as Supply Chain Cover. We are now taking the next step in our development by joining Crimson & Co. The decision to become a Crimson & Co business was simple and logical and we are excited about the long-term prospects for our local and global clients and our people.”
