SKOPE wins award at CCA Supplier of the year awards
When it comes to helping Coca Cola Amatil (CCA) get more value out of the products and services it purchases, no-one knows how to rise to the challenge and exceed expectations better than Christchurch-based SKOPE Industries (SKOPE).
For the fourth year running, SKOPE has won the Trade Equipment category at CCA’s Supplier awards, with fierce competition from more than 100 strategic suppliers over an 18 month period leading up to the awards ceremony held in Sydney’s Town Hall.
Nigel Chapman, SKOPE’s Design Manager, says the company has been working hard for CCA to develop CO2 solutions for its commercial refrigeration, pointing to SKOPE’s success in this area being a key factor behind the award.
“This is an outstanding achievement and highlight’s SKOPE’s commitment and ability to develop and deliver innovative solutions to our customers year on year. While there are many different aspects of the joint business plan that we get measured against with CCA, our achievements with CO2 developments to date are outstanding and have been acknowledged not only by CCA but at a very high level within The Coca Cola Company globally,” says Mr Chapman.
SKOPE continues to support CCA’s move to CO2 refrigerants, reducing MEPS energy consumption of existing models through a CO2 Global cassette. Together, the two companies are working to reduce CCA’s total cost of ownership, with cost down and reliability improvement initiatives.
SKOPE Managing Director Guy Stewart says that despite it being a challenging year for CCA Australia and SKOPE, the company is proud to be recognised as Equipment Supplier for the fourth year running.
“There has been no other supplier to win three years consecutively and overall Supplier of the Year in New Zealand and Australia, so in my opinion this makes us unique in the CCA system. I’m proud of SKOPE, and our design and production teams for all their help with turning CCA’s requests into a reality and to all those who help directly or indirectly with our successful relationship with CCA,” says Mr Stewart.
SKOPE has the largest design and innovation centre of its kind in Australasia. As well as offering a comprehensive range of ‘off the shelf’ products, SKOPE also leads the way in the custom design and build of commercial refrigeration solutions, whether they are complete product designs for global companies, such as CCA, or one-off adaptations of existing products for smaller hospitality businesses.
