BD Asia chooses MAG45 as MRO supplier

Singapore, 10 July 2017 – Becton Dickinson Asia has signed an agreement with MAG45. The contract involves an annual amount of >USD 10 million.

With the collaboration, BD wishes to move towards a professionally-managed ‘Maintenance, Repair and Operating’ (MRO) supply chain, to reduce the workload of end-users. This will allow the company to fully concentrate on its core business.

Currently, BD does not have proactive management of the MRO supply chain, logistics and other processes. The end-users, like technicians and work preparers, also spend a great deal of time on the work-floor searching, walking and waiting to obtain parts.

The agreement covers the delivery of parts for machine maintenance in a total of four of BD’s Asian sites: three in Suzhou and one in Singapore. 

Becton Dickinson (BD) is a global medical and biosciences company with its headquarters in the US, with 40,000 employees worldwide and more than 10 billion dollars in sales.

Bauke Zeinstra, Managing Director MAG45: “I’m extremely proud to join Michael Mok, Senior Director Manufacturing Greater Asia with BD, in having placed my signature on this collaboration. The business development process has taken more than two years, and was led by MAG45’s Chinese branch.”
