UK supply chain event for Siemens Wind Power

UK supply chain event for Siemens Wind Power 2016-11-22T16:14:30+00:00

Project Description

On behalf of the Department of Energy and Climate Change we delivered a UK supply chain event for Siemens Wind Power to support their inward investment into the UK.

Of the 106 companies that attended and met one-to-one with Siemens at a supply chain event, feedback from Siemens was that 65% of the suppliers met were to be contacted for further discussions, an extremely high success rate.

On behalf of the Department of Energy and Climate Change we delivered a UK supply chain event for Siemens Wind Power to support their inward investment into the UK.

We listened to a range of purchasing needs from Siemens, we then identified 455 UK companies that met Siemens specific requirements from a long list of over 1,000. Siemens shortlisted the most attractive 140 of these and we organised a whole-day event at which these businesses were able to learn about Siemens Wind Power and present to relevant members of Siemens’s procurement team.

“This event opened the eyes of many of our team to UK capability that we just did not know was there. There is still a long road to go before some of these companies are suppliers, but this has been a great start – a very efficient process for our busy staff.”
