Supply chain companies on Teesside are to be given presentations from key executives from two of the UK’s most significant rail projects at an executive business briefing.
The breakfast event, hosted by Tees Valley Unlimited in partnership with Teesside Engineering Network (TEN), will focus on the high speed rail project, HS2 and Crossrail, the 100-km railway line under construction in London and surrounding areas.
The keynote speakers at the February briefing include HS2 supply chain manager Joanna Sloane, HS2 head of equality Mark Lomas, Crossrail principal programme supply chain manager Simon Pain and CompeteFor programme manager Len Walker.
Rob Johnson, director of Axiom Engineering Associates and one of the TEN founders, said: “The delivery of HS2 and Crossrail depends on the availability of companies with key competencies. Tees Valley has an extensive pool of businesses with the appropriate skills, expertise and capabilities.
“We are determined that these companies are made aware of the opportunities and what they need to do to establish themselves as contenders to secure contracts generated by HS2 and Crossrail.”
The free event takes place at the Beehive, Lingfield Point, Darlington, on Friday February 12 with breakfast and registration from 8am.
Anyone interested in attending MUST register at the events page on the Tees Valley Unlimited at www.teesvalleyunlimited.gov.uk.
Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
