Riley James


Three years of purchasing experience in a manufacturing environment. Managed over 60 suppliers and more than five million in purchase orders. Experience with metals, hydraulics, distribution, plastics, seals, nameplates, and MRO. Managed more than 10 coworkers and had each individual improve their worst supplier to reach our goal of 95% on time delivery (on time delivery was at 70% and is now steadily above 90%). Managed coworkers to decrease their receiving discrepancies. Held weekly meetings in receiving for buyers to attend and resolve their receiving discrepancies. Conducted supplier visits to confirm they are meeting NOV standards. Set up new suppliers that had better pricing, lead time, and quality.
