Craig International secures £5mn in new contracts with Altera Infrastructure & Bilfinger Salamis, as the company aims to increase its sustainable practices

Energy procurement specialist Craig International has secured two three-year contracts, worth a combined value of more than £5m, with global energy services firms Bilfinger Salamis UK and Altera Infrastructure.

The company credits this to their new market-leading digital platform, ebuy. Craig International is able to source products globally for local supply with attractive fixed prices for the duration of the contracts, avoiding time-consuming requisitions for recurring orders.

Craig International is headquartered in Aberdeen, Scotland, was founded in 1998 and has a revenue of US$21mn. The company has 84 procurement specialists operating across the UK, South Africa, Canada, Qatar and the USA.


Sustainable procurement in progress

The first contract will see the business source and supply oilfield consumables for Altera’s UK and Brazil operations. Meanwhile, the second includes the provision of third-party procurement for goods and services to Bilfinger Salamis UK onshore and offshore business.

Craig International’s ecobuy service, which offers customers the option of more environmentally friendly and less wasteful products, will be used throughout. 

In a more sustainable procurement approach, the service limits logistical requirements for the delivery of products, through a combination of orders to further reduce the industry’s carbon footprint.

The work will be delivered from Craig International’s base in Aberdeen with a dedicated team working on the contracts for the duration of the three-year projects.


Digital procurement enhanced by digital platform ebuy

More than 70% of Craig International’s clients are currently using its ebuy system. The programme supports global operations through its efficient digital technology.

“The new contracts with Altera and Bilfinger for Craig International reinforce our position as a market leader in procurement with a clear differentiator through our approach to efficiency with our digital platform, ebuy, and to environmental performance with ecobuy”, said Carol Ross, general manager of Craig International in Aberdeen. “As our customers ramp up their efforts to reduce the carbon footprint of their operations, ecobuy is ideally placed to support industry targets by making a real difference, not only through the use of less plastic and less wasteful products but also in the way they are procured to reduce the number of journeys by lorries and vessels. We’re looking forward to working closely with both companies over the coming years to streamline their procurement processes and provide a more sustainable, technology-led offering.”
