Major contractors seeking local tradespeople to deliver Midlands developments

National construction companies are set to meet local suppliers at an event aimed at ensuring developments across the Midlands are delivered by trades from within the region.

Buyers from a range of companies including Henry Boot Construction, Willmott Dixon and GF Tomlinson – are set to showcase their schemes next Wednesday (19 February) at the event, which has been organised by Grantham-based construction software company, Local Supply Chain.

Requirements for public and private sector schemes, including education facilities, infrastructure and new housing will be discussed to allow relevant trades and suppliers to discuss how their services can support the delivery of the projects they’re interested in.

Richard Ratcliffe, CEO of Local Supply Chain, said “With 2020 set to be a huge year for development in the region, our aim is to bring individuals from trades across all levels of the construction industry together to enable them to interact and marry their business and project needs. It’s set to be a very productive day for all!”

Kevin Beck, Director of Kingsley Specialist Roofing Ltd, said: “We deliver a range of roofing services across the commercial, industrial, public and residential sectors – not only in the Midlands, but also the South East and London. Therefore it’s really important we have quick and easy access to buyers so we can express interest in their projects.

“Local Supply Chain’s event is the perfect opportunity to showcase our services, network with framework owners and developers, whilst building contacts with buyers across the region.”

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.

The construction software company’s Meet the Buyer day, which is free to attend, is taking place from 8.30am until 2.30pm, at Belton Woods hotel on the outskirts of Grantham.

Tradespeople can still register for the event at www.localsupplychain.co.uk/meetthebuyer or calling 0800 197 6958.
