Construction News Image
An event is set to be held in the Midlands which will look to ensure local developments find suitable trades from across the region.

This will see buyers from national construction companies like Henry Boot Construction, Willmott Dixon and GF Tomlinson meet with local suppliers to showcase their schemes.

Grantham-based construction software company, Local Supply Chain has organised the event, which will take place locally at Belton Woods hotel from 8.30am until 2.30pm on Wednesday 19 February.

Requirements for public and private sector schemes, including education facilities, infrastructure and new housing will also 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, commented: "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.
