Coca-Cola Enterprises Wakefield to question suppliers with automated Suppliers Questionnaires

Coca-Cola Enterprises Wakefield has been working with Target for over three years to deliver 100% compliance to their largest European manufacturing site in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.

In Great Britain (GB) Coca‑Cola Enterprises Ltd (CCE) employs some 4,000 people across England, Scotland and Wales at manufacturing sites, offices and depots.

  • Wakefield was established in 1989 and employs 439 employees.
  • Wakefield is the largest soft drinks plant by volume in Europe.
  • It produces 6,000 cans of soft drink every minute ‑ that’s 100 per second.
  • The site covers an area the size of 33 football pitches

Phil Atkinson, Managing Director of Target said “We are very proud to be working with such an amazing brand at such a large site. Working closely with the site Facilities Manager, Mark White, we have been turning his requirements for information management into a reality in our Accord FM database. Working to control the vase amounts of data around managing so much equipment has been a challenge with site compliance the key driver.”

Mark and his team use Accord and Target services to deliver compliance to the site ensuring an extremely well maintained plant. Recent development into the contract management systems includes the ability for FM staff to create questionnaires for suppliers where documents such as Health & Safety, Method Statements and Supplier questionaires completed online means tighter control, a saving of time for both parties regarding supply chain management.

Accord FM also supports Supplier Login where inspection, maintenance and calibration certificates can be uploaded and the supplier resets the expiration

Mark White, Head of Facilities & Utilities “Target create very good solutions for the complex storage of data. They listen carefully to what we want and turn our ideas into systems that really work. They’re more like work colleagues than contractors.”
