Procurement

At Millcreek Engineering, we understand the intricacies of Procurement. We frequently provide full project procurement, expediting, inspection, logistics and shipping, and materials management. 

Our procurement objectives are:

  • – Purchase at the lowest total cost of ownership.
  • – Meet technical, performance, and code requirements.
  • – Deliver on schedule.

Each engagement starts by developing our procurement strategy with the customer, determining preferred vendors and local preferences. The strategy also determines the break-up or grouping of packages as well as logistics and shipping. Working with the client our team determines how standardization of components/brands across the facility or with other customers’ facilities play a role. This process also includes determination and provision of spare parts and tagging.¬†
