Is your business allied to the construction sector, do you want it promoted to contractors delivering new build projects, do you want to know about the funding and support available to help grow your business – we can help.  

 

Following the success of previous ‘Meet the Buyer ‘events we are keen to ensure that any Walsall business allied to the construction trade continues to be aware of and can take advantage of any commercial build and development opportunities. There are some major development schemes taking place across the Black Country and the wider west midlands not least the £360m Birmingham Met Hospital in Sandwell.  

 

Over the coming weeks we will be contacting everyone on our construction supply chain database to ensure our details are up to date and to discuss any support that you may need.  

 

If you want any further information on the opportunities or the support available please contact Jeff Marlow on 01922 655988.
