Bufab Academy is an initiative to strengthen the competence of staff within the BUFAB Group. The Academy will provide training in modules relevant to Bufab and provide an opportunity to form a common frame of reference for continued development on the topic at hand.
In November, Bufab Sourcing Academy APAC was conducted to help train employees to improve work with Category Management, Cost reductions, Profitable growth and Reduced Supply Chain risk. This regional initiative was also used as a platform for inter-region group development within the APAC team and Bufab’s new Ningbo Sourcing organization.
The training was conducted by Silf, our educational partner, and the same organisation that has conducted trainings for our affiliated companies in the European region. From all over APAC, Category Managers, Lead Buyers, Regional Leaders and our very own Supply Chain Manager, Andrew Soh, were present for the training.
“It was a pleasure to attend this training and I believe to be speaking for everyone on how we have expanded on both our knowledge on global sourcing tactics and relations within the APAC region.” commented Andrew, Kian Soon Mechanical Components Singapore.
