East Renfrewshire Council to host Meet the Buyer event
East Renfrewshire Council is inviting local contractors to a Meet the Buyer event, where they can find out about contract opportunities on projects happening across the area.
Council contractors, including BAM, Heron Brothers and Amco Giffen, are looking for local suppliers to work on projects including the Neilston education campus, Barrhead river restoration project and the Eastwood leisure centre. The package of works they are hoping to appoint include groundworks, bricklayers, decorators, flooring contractors, joiners, landscapers, glaziers and fencers.
The drop-in event will take place on Thursday 4 August, from 9am until 12pm, in the Westbourne Centre in Barrhead.
Business Gateway as well as the council’s Economic Development and Procurement teams will also be on hand to offer support and guidance to local businesses who want to grow by completing tenders and winning new business.
East Renfrewshire Council leader, Councillor Owen O’Donnell, said: “It’s important when significant council contracts and projects are agreed, that local businesses and residents benefit from the various opportunities available. This event is an excellent chance for local contractors to get involved in some really exciting projects, so I’d encourage anyone who is interested to book their place.”
