With support from SEE Mike Gabriel was able to achieve 'Fit to Supply' status and comply with the procurement requirements of local authorities and large organisations.
Lakedale Power Tools (LPT) has an excellent reputation for the service and supply of hand and power tools products from its premises in Plumstead. It also supplies construction equipment, fixings, safety and electrical products.
LPT had the opportunity to tender for the contract to supply an on-site tool shop and safety equipment to the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA). The ODA required that potential bidders complete a Pre Qualifying Questionnaire (PQQ) prior to the release of the tender.
Managing Partner Mike Gabriel, was confident of being able to win the contract since LPT had proven experience, gained during the development of the O2. However, Mike realised that he needed expert advice to assist him complete the complex tender documents. SEE business advisers worked closely with Mike to complete the tendering processes and to ensure LPT passed the initial pre-qualification hurdle.
I cannot speak too highly of the dedication the business advisers gave in supporting our tender application, working through policy documents covering areas such as Health & Safety, Quality, Equal Opportunities and Environment. Due to short deadlines much of the communication with the advisers took place outside normal office hours, often late into the evening. We were confident that our bid ticked all the right boxes.
