Expanding Supply Chain Strengthens Localization Goals
May 23, 2023
The most obvious way that GE Gas Power benefits communities around the world including this region is through its fleet of 7,000 gas turbines. But there is another important way: continuing to strengthen and expand its regional supply chain.
By partnering with GE Gas Power, local suppliers of parts, materials and services gain valuable experience delivering to the highest global standards. They learn best practices and are empowered by GE to continually improve metrics such as safety, quality and consistency, on-time delivery, reliability, performance, and competitiveness.
Reflecting this commitment, GE Gas Power hosted more than 200 organizations at the 2023 Middle East, Africa, and South Asia (MEASA) Strategic Partners Summit, recently held in-person and virtually in Dubai.
“At GE Gas Power, we are committed to foster closer collaboration with our suppliers to meet the evolving needs of our customers and help them with their energy transition objectives. This summit is part of our ongoing efforts to strengthen supply chain, deliver results on time with the right quality, and leverage opportunities as nations in the region seek pathways for growth and sustainability” said Mofeez Murtaza, Sourcing Leader for GE Gas Power Middle East, Africa and South Asia.
The five-day Summit featured discussions, interactive sessions and online trainings, as well as one-on-one meetings with suppliers.
While highlighting best practices in safety and quality, GE and other experts weighed in on expanding supply base requirements for new product portfolios, delivering value for customers, and creating increased opportunities for suppliers.
A highlight of the Summit was GE Gas Power recognizing outstanding supplier performance. Honored companies included Salem Agency & Services System Engineering, Precision Engineering Company, and Riyadh Geo Technique & Foundations from Saudi Arabia; Aon Middle East LLC and Al-Madina Building Material Trading LLC from the UAE; Al-Hurea Security Services from Iraq; Eurl MGI Laghouat, Sarl RCG Algerie, and MEGA Propre SEBA Rostom from Algeria; and DANEM Engineering Works WLL from Qatar.
