MEP Awards 2016: Leminar wins supplier accolade
Pramodh Idicheria, general manager at Leminar, said the company was proud to beat such strong competition
Leminar Air Conditioning Company triumphed in the Supplier of the Year category.
Pramodh Idicheria, general manager at Leminar, said the competition was tough considering the profiles of shortlisted companies.
“This award is a great achievement and recognition for the services we provide to the market. It is a special moment as this year we are celebrating 25 years in the industry. When we started there were only few traders, handling couple of items and from there it evolved into a much bigger industry with larger projects in terms of size and volume,” he added.
Judges were impressed by its willingness and ability to provide clients with up-to-date solutions to issues as they arise on site.
One judge said that by using simple methods and minimising delivery times for the benefit of the Abu Dhabi Midfield Terminal project, its input had an overall saving on capital costs of 40%.
Another judge noted how it also cut out uncertain periods of supplier delivery by holding stocks for two months, unusual in the MENA region where the opposite is normally true.
“To deliver on time involves a lot of cost and you have to make sure you have enough stocks, so we always keep our two month stock close to $30m for all of our products. We have 15 delivery pickups so we are able to deliver our products anywhere in the UAE,” said Idicheria.
