Our Approach

NSG Group's Procurement function works to build strong relationships with suppliers that are based on a framework of trust, cooperation and sustainability.

We aim to be the customer of choice for our suppliers

Through an organizational structure that combines global and regional responsibilities for all aspects of procurement practice. Our approach is based on category management which takes a holistic view of our demand, our specifications, expectations and the supplier market to deliver the appropriate contract strategy. We strive to optimise the supply base across the Group, selecting suppliers who fully meet NSG Group’s needs today and in the future working towards shared values and objectives.

NSG Group Procurement drives value creation through efficient and sustainable sourcing, active management of supply relationships, working capital and global supply risks, and the pursuit of innovation to support the strategic objectives and future growth of the business.

Sustainable value creation

  • Total Cost Management

Management and improvement of total costs and margins by establishing and managing a highly competitive external cost base and sustaining the alignment of costs with sale prices.

  • Risk Management & Supply Security

Effective management of business risk through the development of dependable ‘preferred’ relationships with key suppliers and avoiding mono-supply situations. Supported by ongoing assessment, support and management of the supply base.

  • Value Chain Optimisation

Improving productivity through automated Procure to Pay (P2P) processes, supplier connectivity and e-sourcing tools; and optimising cash and working capital through optimised P2P, eInvoicing and planned processes.

  • Innovation & Growth

Sales growth through new supplier sourcing which helps develop presence in new markets and reducing time to market.  Supplier innovation supports new product and service offerings.
