Introducing APD Placement

For over 10 years, Advanced Purchasing Dynamics has been helping manufacturing companies make their Purchasing function a competitive advantage.  Our staff has decades of experience in this field, and as a result our Placement division is very unique.

APD Placement is concentrated solely on connecting leading manufacturing firms with the best, and most appropriate, Purchasing and Supply Chain talent in the market place.

Our style is consultative, and we always balance the best interests of both client and candidate.  It sounds cliché, but we would rather advise you against making a hire – or a candidate in accepting an offer – if we felt it was not right for either party.

With pursuits led by APD Placement, that rarely happens.  That is because we invest the time to go beyond the resume – and the job description – to understand what it really takes to succeed in a particular role.

We apply our perspective as Purchasing leaders and consultants to connect the right roles with the right candidates, minimizing the risk on both sides and significantly increasing the odds of a successful long term placement.
