Ballyclare has reinforced its position as a leading workwear provider to companies in the oil and gas sector by joining Achilles FPAL - an online community which serves the procurement needs of the European oil and gas market. Ballyclare’s membership of the online Achilles FPAL platform now provides customers with a clear picture of the company’s capabilities and performance record in key business areas, such as quality, health and safety and financial performance.
“Achilles FPAL is an industry-run community of operators, contractors and suppliers who work together to promote a fair and transparent supply chain,” says Ballyclare managing director, Carlton Greener. “We have long been a supplier to this sector where our specialist heat-resistant and flame-retardant Pionér® workwear has earned a strong reputation. Becoming a member of the FPAL community really reinforces our credentials to oil and gas customers and reassures them that they can buy from us with complete confidence.”
Achilles FPAL uses a series of data validation plus desktop and physical audits to ensure that information from companies such as Ballyclare who supply goods to this sector is accurate and reliable. Established in 1997 it is the largest supply chain risk management community supporting the North Sea and European oil and gas industry and works to streamline the procurement process and reduce costs.
