J2 is proud to announce the signing of a new outsourcing agreement with Alstom Grid, a company that supplies a full range of products and systems for the electricity industry.
J2 will handle part of purchasing for the Alstom Grid facilities at La Prairie. This outsourcing will simplify the company’s procurement function, allowing it to free itself from the burden of activities unrelated to its core operations.
Although widespread in Europe and the United States, this type of service is relatively new and innovative in Québec. “This agreement is a fine opportunity for us to demonstrate to Québec companies the multiple benefits of outsourcing. It’s a shrewd way of improving efficiency, reducing costs, and increasing profitability, among other things. We are happy to be able to provide this service and we believe that many companies will want to join this movement,” said Mr. Réal Julien, J2 President.
