Morgan Sindall is inviting local Cumbrian businesses to be part of its supply chain. The company is expanding its portfolio of projects in the nuclear sector across the North West and Scotland and is looking for suppliers “to work with us and be part of our supply chain family”.
As a first step, Morgan Sindall are keen to welcome potential new suppliers and subcontractors, as well as its existing service providers, to a Supply Chain Engagement Day to hear first hand about the opportunities they have within the nuclear sector and how local businesses can get involved. These include opportunities in design, construction, civil engineering, fabrication, fit-out, mechanical, electrical, inspection and commissioning services.
We have a number of exciting programmes of work and are enhancing supply chain partners to collaborate with us to deliver these opportunities.
Morgan Sindall is part of the Morgan Sindall Group plc, a leading UK construction and regeneration group, and a major player in Cumbria. It is part of the £1.1bn Infrastructure Strategic Alliance (ISA) at Sellafield. The ISA, which began in 2012, provides the Sellafield site with essential infrastructure, such as the provision and distribution of steam, electricity, water supply, roads, bridges and car parks. Currently the ISA contract runs until 2022.
The company is also working for BAE Systems as part of their eight-year re-development programme of the BAE Systems Submarines site at Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, which includes the multi-million pound Devonshire Dock Hall Extension project.
The Supply Chain Engagement Day takes place on Thursday September 7 at The Halston Aparthotel in Carlisle. There are two sessions running from 9am -12 or 12-3pm.
To attend, register here. Owing to anticipated strong demand places are limited to one per business.
Steve Dixon, Senior Supply Chain Manager – Nuclear, said; “We have a number of exciting programmes of work and are enhancing supply chain partners to collaborate with us to deliver these opportunities.

And we are keen to communicate with both our existing providers but also businesses that are looking to work in the nuclear sector.”
