THE Stewart Milne Group will be highlighting significant opportunities for tradespeople and subcontractors to work with it on developments across Scotland at an industry event in Inverness on Thursday (April 23).
The housebuilder and timber systems manufacturer is holding a supplier engagement event in the city in order to develop new relationships with local sub-contractors to support its own, growing workforce as part of its significant growth plans.
Stewart Milne Group is currently expanding its operations across Scotland and north-west England with plans to deliver thousands of new homes in the next three years, including a development of 89 mainly four and five bedroom homes at Ness Castle East.
Stewart Milne Group, in conjunction with Constructionline, will host the event at the Craigmonie Hotel, Inverness from 10am to 2pm. It is particularly aimed at tradespeople including timber frame erectors, joiners, bricklayers, electricians, plasterers, roofers, painters and tapers with opportunities in Inverness and further afield.
Glenn Allison, chief executive officer of Stewart Milne Group, said, “We are committed to using the local supply chain across our developments. This allows us to support the local economy and gives us the benefit of high-quality tradespeople with local knowledge. We are implementing significant growth plans in our homes division, which is creating new opportunities for subcontractors and the wider supply chain community to work with us in support of our own, growing workforce. Our meet the buyer event in Inverness on Thursday will give us the chance to make contact with local tradespeople and firms and build new, long term relationships.
“The event will allow attendees to meet our team and learn more about the opportunities and benefits of working with us, including how to engage with us on new projects such as our Ness Castle East development.”
