Trades get chance to meet region’s largest contractors

Tradespeople and businesses from around the East Midlands are being invited to meet some of the region’s largest main contractors who are looking for suppliers to deliver their construction projects.

Buyers from a range of companies, including Lindum, Henry Boot, GF Tomlinson, Morgan Sindall, North Midland Construction and Sanctuary Housing are set to showcase their schemes next Tuesday 17th September at the event, which has been organised by Local Supply Chain.

The construction software company’s Meet the Buyer day, which is free to attend, is taking place from 8.30am until 2.30pm at the Belfry Hotel in Nottingham. Requirements for public and private sector schemes, including education facilities, infrastructure and new housing for example will be discussed, which will allow relevant trades and suppliers to find out more and express their interest if they choose to.

Richard Ratcliffe, CEO of Local Supply Chain, said “Getting your foot in the door with large companies can often be a lengthy and time-consuming process for tradespeople. It is also the same for main contractors who need qualified, honest and local people to deliver their construction projects.

“We’ve organised this event so individuals from trades across all levels of the construction industry can interact and marry their business and project needs. Tradespeople, such as joiners, builders, electricians, along with businesses such as architects, interior designers and surveyors are all encouraged to come along to what is set to be a very productive day for all.”

Gavin Jamieson, Head of Supply Chain at Morgan Sindall, said: “We deliver complex projects up and down the country across multiple industries, including construction, infrastructure, fit-out, property services, housing, regeneration and development.

“Working with local suppliers is very important to us and Local Supply Chain’s event is the perfect opportunity to showcase our schemes, network with other businesses and source suitable tradespeople from the East Midlands.”

Local Supply Chain is a cloud-based construction project management platform that allows sub-contractors, consultants and suppliers to co-ordinate all frameworks, projects, procurements and associated supply chains in one place. It’s an online community of more than 25,000 sub-contractors, consultants and suppliers across a vast range of sectors.
