22/01/20 - New Directory Launched to Support the Growth of Businesses in the Region

The Supply Chain Network Directory is an evolution of the Green Port directory

The Supply Chain Network, whose aim is to raise the aspirations of businesses in the region by supporting them with specialist advice and information, has launched a new directory to help businesses access supply chain opportunities.

The Supply Chain Network directory is an evolution of the existing Green Port directory, which was created to provide information to the renewables industry on the Humber region’s suppliers, products and services.  

The Supply Chain Network directory will support the continued growth and investment in the region and features an online central hub for the region’s suppliers, products and services across a broader range of sectors.

This hub gives businesses access to a list of suppliers in the region for future projects and allows registered businesses to showcase their products services. Members will also be able to access information on developments and receive alerts on new opportunities and tenders.

Dawn Hall, Project Manager for the Supply Chain Network said:

“The Green Port Growth Programme and the Green Port directory successfully supported more than 400 businesses in the Humber by connecting them with opportunities in the supply chain of some of the biggest businesses in the region, including Siemens, Orsted, SSE and many more. The evolution of the Green Port directory into the Supply Chain Network directory is symbolic of the region’s own evolution, offering businesses in the region more benefits than ever before across a broad range of sectors – not just renewables, but engineering, manufacturing, digital, visitor economy and many more, too.  

“Registering to become a member of the Supply Chain Network directory is completely free and is the perfect way to increase the visibility of your business, generate enquiries and grow revenue. Most importantly, it’s a fantastic way to network and build relationships with other businesses in the region, which can often lead to new opportunities.”

To support the launch of the new directory and proceeding it, the Supply Chain Network will be hosting a series of workshops throughout the year. These workshops will provide information and specialist knowledge to help businesses increase their chances of success in competitive tenders.

Local suppliers interested in learning more about the Rail Industry, opportunities and requirements are attending a Rail workshop taking place at the ergo Centre in Hessle tomorrow and 4 th February. The workshop will feature the voice of the customer, explaining product and service expectations from key organisations such as Siemens and Bombardier and raise awareness of the supply chain opportunities within the sector.

Businesses interested in registering to become a part of the Supply Chain Network directory should visit www.thesupplychainnetwork.co.uk to create their own company profile.
