Having been selected as the recipient of the 2019 Rolls-Royce Procurement Supplier of the Year, Belcan is just one of two suppliers to receive the renowned award.

Rolls-Royce recognised Belcan’s contribution to cost reduction, quality and delivery excellence for the company throughout 2019.

Who is Belcan?

Belcan is a global supplier of engineering, supply chain, technical recruiting and IT services to customers in the aerospace, defence, automotive, industrial and government industries. Belcan seeks for better outcomes for customers, from jet engines, airframe and avionics to heavy vehicles, automobiles and cybersecurity. Belcan's services include engineering, technical and consulting.

Upon receiving the award, Keith Matthews, President of Belcan International commented: “Belcan prides itself in its ability to deliver excellence in quality, execution, and on time delivery, which makes this recognition from a premier company such as Rolls-Royce so gratifying. While we appreciate this award, Belcan is always striving for improvement, and we continue to invest in people, environment, skills, and retention to ensure we remain ahead of the competition.”


Dean Fell, Rolls-Royce Head of Category Management, commented on the significant trust and value of Belcan’s partnership with Rolls-Royce, as well as the benefits of customer service and cost delivered by Belcan.

Rolls-Royce had a successful year itself during 2019. Announced as the overall winners of the CIPS Supply Management Awards 2019, direct civil aerospace procurement savings of £153.2mn (US$195.8mn) were achieved. “Procurement is very much a people and knowledge-based organisation,” said Gordon Tytler, Director of Procurement at Rolls-Royce. “The tools allow us to operate more efficiently, effectively and to enable us to link with our suppliers. But, the key differentiator for successful procurement is its people.”
