First Colleagues. Now Friends.

“Bisham carried out a Pan-European network review of our spare parts warehousing and transport strategy and operations and advised us on rationalisation and efficiency improvements including implementation.  We were so pleased with their approach and the results that we asked them to undertake a similar exercise across the USA.  Good commercial, practical people – highly recommended.”

Bert van den Berg

"Brammer has worked with Bisham on a number of projects over the years, and I have invariably been delighted with their approach and the quality of their output. Bisham has supported Brammer on new warehouse design and delivery, the implementation of warehouse systems, and facilitated the definition of supply chain strategy. All the members of the Bisham team that we have worked with, and continue to work with, are experienced and pragmatic, intellectually rigorous, but with a real-world approach to solving sometimes very complex problems."
