Situation

  • Needed to incorporate and manage all purchasing activities for a new plant being built in the US
  • Complex project with many participants and stakeholders
  • Limited existing US supply base for contractors needed to complete work
  • ROCKWOOL uses Scanmarket for the majority of its CapEx projects

 

Solution

  • Employed 3-stage RFX process with full RFI, RFP and RFQ stages
  • Used RFI process to find and qualify consultants, designers and contractors in local US market
  • Machinery RFPs also conducted through the Scanmarket platform

 

Outcomes

  • CapEx procurement completed on time and on budget
  • All information and documentation related to purchasing for factory construction housed in single repository
