Successful Supplier Event held at Shropshire Gas Wellington

Shropshire Gas is celebrating a successful supplier engagement day in Wellington Telford, having welcomed local suppliers and contractors to meet the team and learn more about opportunities to work with the company. Shropshire Gas carries out over 20,000 visits to household heating systems across Shropshire each year.

The event was hosted at the new Shropshire Gas Telford Multi Fuel Heating Showroom. Consultants and heating material suppliers attended the event, with suppliers of gas fires and fire surrounds coming from Stoke, Birmingham and Nottingham and York. Of these, 38 took away information on how to submit their prices to Shropshire Gas for future opportunities. Many attendees commented on how beneficial the supplier engagement day is for local and midlands contractors.

Shropshire Gas Director, Jim Walton said: "Shropshire Gas is committed to supporting the local economy in areas in which we work and, as part of this, we were proud to welcome so many potential new partners to our supplier engagement day. By working with external organisations we are able not only to share our wealth of industry experience, but also discover new ways to approach projects or initiatives, as well as support local and regional companies."

Thomas Murray Shropshire Gas said “It can prove difficult for local Telford and Shrewsbury heating sub-contractors to have the opportunity to get involved with large organisations such as Shropshire Gas. The fact that so many attended the engagement day and expressed how useful it was demonstrates how important events like these are in helping both suppliers, sub contactors and buyers build strong and ongoing working relationships” Adding "Through our programme of supplier engagement days and larger meet the buyer events, we want to continue to help contractors and suppliers find and secure work. We want to make it easier for businesses, homeowners and landlords in Telford, Shrewsbury, Newport and Market Drayton to find reliable gas and oil and multi fuel heating services, for more information contact Shropshire Gas Telford, telephone 01952 252516”
