Hi-Vis Signs and Safety has been approved by the Asia Pacific Utilities Group (APUG) for inclusion as a registered member to the APUG supplier group following a stringent certification and assessment process.
APUG is a network of buyers and suppliers to the utility industry in the Asia Pacific Region. The Group is part of a global network of 160 buying organisations and over 14,000 suppliers to the utility industry.
Essentially a pre-qualification system, the APUG SMS removes many of the time-consuming processes of searching and tendering for the right supplier organisations.
APUG operates via a central supplier management system used by various utility buyers to source and select appropriate and relevant suppliers and contractors for upcoming tenders and projects.
Many utility member buyers share very common procurement requirements and strategies. In Australia, compliance with various Australian standards is mandatory in many areas and quality assurance certification is a must.
The APUG SMS offers a pool of suppliers who have already been pre-qualified and provides utility buyers an instant shortlist of potential suppliers to consider.
The APUG membership facilitates access for Hi-Vis to new markets in the utility sector for their extensive range of signage systems and safety products.
