Transform Enter Roll of Honour on Buy North East
Transform are pleased to announce that they have entered the Roll of Honour on Buy North East, an initiative supported by Aberdeen city and shire councils, NHS Grampian and Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce. This initiative aims to support businesses to consider how much of their goods and services they could possibly buy from a local supplier and support our local economy in the North East of Scotland. The campaign aims to get the issue of local procurement firmly on to the agenda of private, public and third sector organisations in the region, providing stimulus, case studies and practical advice to both buyers and sellers with the result that more business is done between companies based in the city and Aberdeenshire. At a time when many businesses and individuals are feeling the impact of the oil and gas downturn, it is more important than ever that we collectively do all we can to help the regional economy, and protect and create jobs in the area.
Transform firmly believe that the quality of manufacturing and the supply chain in the North East is of such a high standard that looking further afield is not required and recognise that it is vital that we support each other in the North East in these times of economic pressure, and have committed to review our purchasing strategy at board level.
