After experiencing 44 percent revenue growth in 2016, Genysis Group knows it has hit upon the right path to move forward. The manufacturer of powdered nutritional supplements has used a lean fulfillment system and transparent communication to become an indispensible part of its customers’ operations. 

“We’re going to do it the best and we’re going to continue to do it on a grander scale,” President Adam Schwinghammer says. “We want to be the destination where people go to launch new products in powder form.”

Marriott International’s procurement organization makes it easy for the company to expand its already massive worldwide footprint.

Last September, Marriott International became the world’s largest hotel company when it completed its acquisition of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide. The $14 billion transaction added nearly 1,300 hotel properties in 100 countries to Marriott’s holdings, giving it more than 5,700 properties with 1.1 million rooms around the world.

Absorbing Starwood’s operations – including its supply chain procurement systems – was a major task, but Marriott was more than up to the challenge. “Because of the procurement organization we have in place, we were able to integrate them quickly,” says Stephane Masson, Marriott’s senior vice president of global procurement. He notes the company has successfully acquired other large hotel chains such as Gaylord Hotels during its long history.

Keurig Canada attributes its ever-increasing household penetration rate in a highly competitive landscape to being both a disruptive, leading-edge technology company and a leader in specialty coffee that is “extremely loved” by its consumers. To maintain its position in Canada’s single-serve beverage market, the Montreal-based business unit of Keurig Green Mountain invests heavily on relationships throughout its supply chain.

“It’s about finding the right suppliers and working with them,” Director of Procurement and Logistics Joseph Souaid says. “It’s a two-way relationship – one party can’t succeed without the other and we recognize that.”

Keurig Canada offers a wide range of premium coffees in a variety of formats, as well as Keurig® Single Cup coffee makers and Keurig® brewed coffees, teas and other beverages. Van Houtte® and Timothy’s® are Keurig Canada’s flagship brands, but it offers the Green Mountain Coffee® brand coffee, as well.
