As we know, the HPC construction has provided many work packages for local and national contractors, and indeed the Somerset Chamber has produced a ‘Supply Chain’ portal and product which aims to get as many local companies involved as possible with HPC and take some benefit from this large build. However, the HPC build is not the only large project on our doorstep and it is the aim of the Bridgwater Chamber to create an alternative supply chain product for all the other projects coming to the area.
Whichever sector services and products your business offers are going to be of interest to the project developers and incoming new businesses, as Bridgwater expands through this period of growth and development. There are more than 12 projects presently in the pipeline and we estimate up to £300m. of work to become available.
We are currently actively campaigning to involve all local, small, medium and large businesses in this new initiative. Although, naturally, there is a huge demand for all the construction services and trades throughout the initial HPC development, we also wish to also raise awareness of the indirect businesses who will be able to take advantage of the economic advantages of these projects over the 10-year timescale of the redevelopment.
There are many varied projects planned so it makes sense to register your interest in being added to our supply chain register of local companies. This lies at the heart of Bridgwater Chambers vision; to build more prosperous businesses in our area and to promote our area.
We will provide support and information to any local business interested in joining our supply chain register. This will be a first step in supporting them to engage and access some of the opportunities arising in the Bridgwater area as a result of the Hinkley Point development. You can be part of the non-nuclear development. There are no cost implications to joining our supply chain register; please contact one of our team on the number or email below and we will contact you to answer any further questions you may have and take the information we require to add your details to our supply chain list.
You have everything to gain and nothing to lose.
We look forward to hearing from you.
