The member authorities of YPO, the largest public sector buying organisation in the UK, have established YPO Supplies Ltd. The new company allows YPO to provide products and services, for the first time, to the private sector.
A respected procurement specialist and leading provider to education and local authority markets for over forty years, the formation of the limited company is a natural progression for YPO and part of its ambitious expansion plans.
Paul Smith, Procurement and Supply Chain Director at YPO, said: “Our vision is to continually provide the best possible value for money when procuring goods and services for our customers. YPO has been hugely successful in supplying products and services to the public sector and being able to replicate this success in new markets is an exciting prospect.”
2014 is a milestone year for YPO in which it celebrates its 40th anniversary. This latest initiative is part of the changes the organisation seeks to effect to provide the best possible service to customers and create a solid base for future growth.
