Sellafield Ltd has hosted another successful supplier forum event, providing an opportunity for supply chain members to meet the company’s executive and commercial teams as well as network with each other.
One of the main topics for discussion was the new £1.5bn 15-year Design Service’s Alliance, which had been announced the previous day. Representatives from the winning consortia, AXIOM and Progressive Alliance, were on hand to speak to the supply chain and Sellafield Ltd’s Keith Case explained how Sellafield Ltd was changing its approach to procuring goods, with the focus shifting to longer-term collaborative agreements.
The event was held for the first time at Energus, which also presented those present with the chance to take a look at the first class apprentice training facilities on offer at the centre.
Over 350 delegates were in attendance with 25 exhibitors from the supply chain joining Sellafield Ltd representatives.
Supply chain ombudsman Stuart Wilson said: “It was a very successful event with the speakers well received and, as always, the opportunity to network seen by many as one of the most useful functions.
“We were also able to talk about upcoming commercial opportunities at Sellafield as well as share information about some of the work that is going on at the moment on the site, such as the Journey to Excellence.”
