“Dave has worked alongside Colbran & Wingrove for over 10 years. In all our dealings Dave has worked closely and effectively with all levels of the organisation to help us deliver a high quality service that met the needs of the customer. Always available to support, completely open to problem discussion and alternative ways of working to get the job done in a prompt and fair manner. We would not hesitate to work with Dave in the future.”

Nicholas O’Neill

Managing Director – NTN Bearings (UK) Limited

I have found Dave to be the consummate professional, always working with respect and integrity whilst taking a direct role and ownership for tough  but always fair commercial negotiations.

A key strength of Dave is his communication, coordination and understanding for getting relevant stakeholders involved at the key time, inclusive of but not limited to design engineering, sales and supply chain, whilst always open to support innovation and new ideas.

Having had a professional business relationship with Dave for over 20 years I am confident without reservation that his purchasing consulting business would be a great asset for any organisation requiring support in his specialised field.

It is a pleasure to personally endorse Dave as a highly experienced and practical procurement and supply chain authority.
