The Founder Story
DPOC (Dutch Procurement & Outsourcing Company) was founded by Khadija Rbati, a visionary global sourcing expert with over 18 years of experience. Her journey began in the dynamic setting of the Dubai Jebel Ali Free Zone, where she worked as an insurance broker, assisting expat business owners in establishing their companies and ensuring comprehensive coverage for their business, assets, employees, and families. Through her meticulous procurement of insurance policies, including properties, marine cargo, and marine hulls & machineries, she not only saved her clients valuable time and money but also enhanced their coverage during the challenging times of the 2008 financial crisis.
In 2009, Khadija embarked on a new chapter of her career by representing a Turkish power generator manufacturer in Morocco, focusing on serving the MEA customers. Her passion for expanding horizons and seeking new opportunities led her to Brussels, Belgium, where she continued her work with the same company from 2010 to 2013. During this period, she honed her expertise in the assembly of diesel power generators for special applications such as telecommunications and military purposes, solidifying her position as a trusted supplier of mechanical and electrical engineered products to the Power, Marine, Construction, and Infrastructure industries.
Beyond the provision of diesel generators, diesel engines, transformers, gearboxes, turbochargers, and associated parts, Khadija's vast experience in insurance acquisition proved instrumental in her transition to procuring high-quality mechanical marine and industrial products directly from OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers). By building strong working relationships with OEMs and their representatives, distributors, and dealers, she ensured that DPOC could meet the company's unique requirements and receive exceptional service.
Having lived and worked in diverse countries, immersing herself in different cultures and languages, Khadija's personal and professional growth has greatly influenced her business acumen. These experiences propelled her unwavering commitment to specializing in the industry, allowing her to navigate international markets with confidence and expertise.
Her journey has been nothing short of inspiring, marked by continuous cultural and business development. The challenges she has faced and overcome have fueled her dedication to expanding herself as a businessperson, always seeking new opportunities to deliver exceptional procurement solutions to clients worldwide. With her visionary leadership, DPOC stands as a trusted partner in the procurement industry, driven by a passion for excellence and a relentless commitment to client satisfaction.
