Supply Chain Workshops

A series of workshops to help businesses gain success in major industry supply chains has been hailed a success.

The supply chain development sessions, run by Middlesbrough Council in partnership with Business to Business, were open to businesses from Middlesbrough and the surrounding area.

They were designed to help businesses win contracts in supply chains for the construction, defence, marine, energy, rail and transport industries.

The four sessions were hosted by procurement specialist Garry Stone who has helped numerous North East businesses win new supply chain contracts and were funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), managed by the Department for Communities and Local Government.

Delegates from more than 50 businesses at each of the events heard from key contractors operating in the area, received detailed information on how to bid for work and gained a clear understanding of future development in these sectors.

Councillor Charlie Rooney, Middlesbrough Council’s Executive Member for Economic Development, said: “These workshops were a great chance for Teesside businesses to learn about the many opportunities that are available in the supply chain of these major industries.

“Middlesbrough has a wide range of high quality and competitive business which I’m sure are more than a match for businesses elsewhere in the country when it comes to winning future contracts.”

Local business Adept offers specialist recruitment and strategic HR solutions and found the sessions extremely useful. Managing Director Kelly Adamson said: “I was enthused by the presentations, it brought home to me the added value that Adept delivers, but doesn’t necessarily market.

“This will certainly help us identify several areas that we can focus our attention on in the future.”
