Local Liverpool businesses can be part of Royal Hospital & LFC schemes

Liverpool businesses now have the chance to be part of the supply chain for the new Royal Liverpool University Hospital and the expansion of Liverpool Football Club.

The construction firm for both projects, Carillion, is holding a “Meet the Buyer” event on Thursday 26 February in the Champions Lounge in the Centenary Stand at Anfield to ensure that local firms have a priority when it comes to benefitting from these important development schemes.

The event will give local businesses the opportunity to meet with Carillion teams, as well as the existing supply chain, to discuss and potential opportunities.

Councillor Nick Small, Cabinet member for employment and skills, said:

“We are absolutely determined to make sure that firms and businesses in Liverpool have a chance to benefit from a slice of the many hundreds of millions of pounds that are being spent on these two amazing projects.

“It is hugely important that money spent by institutions in the city remains in the city and filters its way into the pockets of the local workforce.

“This is the type of strategy that we have already pursued with our new schools and housing projects in the city and we have seen some tremendous results, with local businesses benefiting hugely.”

To confirm attendance, email your company name, address and postcode to rachael.phillips@carillionplc.com putting Meet the Buyer in the subject field, along with your trade. Firms will then be issued with joining instructions including details of the time allocated and parking instructions.

The event is on a first come, first served basis.
