Procurement/Supply Chain Management
A key element in the execution of any project, procurement at MB is managed by a force of approximately 422 individuals assigned to project task forces. They are in charge of sourcing new suppliers, buying, expediting orders, inspecting the manufacturing of equipment and bulk material as well as organizing delivery and logistics.
Each project team has the ownership of its budget and delivery and is supported by the expertise and processes of the MB operating center it is attached to. All protect teams are bound by common Group policies and code of ethics.
MB is a player that sources competitively worldwide and can provide support to clients through the provision of dedicated procurement services.
At the Group level, MB’s Procurement organization is responsible for the coherence of procurement policies and strategies across the Group as well as the dissemination of market intelligence and trends.
Supply Chain Management Expertise
Our expertise spans the entire supply chain, from sourcing, purchasing and transportation logistics to inventory control, inspection and quality assurance. Every product and service we use must comply with our exacting quality and safety requirements. In addition to our procurement offices, we maintain fabrication facilities for manufacturing needed components and lay-down yards for storing steel and equipment.
Over the last seven years, we’ve developed strong relationships with key suppliers, manufacturers and service providers in a variety of industries. We utilize competitive bidding and negotiate long-term agreements to obtain competitive prices for materials and services. We also do our homework, extensively researching markets and suppliers to ensure we prepare accurate estimates, select the best products and obtain the best prices.

Smart Work Processes
We believe that every member of the project team shares some responsibility for the supply chain. Our engineers work with customers to select the technologies and equipment that best meet the project and cost requirements. Our project managers and procurement staff synchronize project schedules, materials orders and shipping logistics to minimize work delays. Our logistics and safety experts ensure potentially hazardous materials are transported and handled safely and responsibly. We also design our projects and train our people to ensure construction materials are not wasted.
Long after our projects are complete, we serve as a ready source of spare parts for MB-supplied plants. We maintain engineering, design and purchasing records on every facility and piece of equipment that we supply so we can easily research, manufacture or locate and ship parts. We provide everything from bushings, nuts and bolts to vessels, reactors, piping and instrumentation. This service can be especially valuable during a plant turnaround; we can handle special tagging, export crating, documentation and provide rush shipping to virtually any location in the world.
