 North West supply chain website launched

NWLCC has launched the Lancashire Supply Chain Portal www.shalegaslancashire.co.uk, as a way for companies to register their interest in becoming a supplier to the shale gas industry.

The database now has in excess of 1000 companies wishing to see themselves as potential suppliers. It was developed not only to help assess the local supply chain’s interest, it was also developed to look at the supply chains preparedness, and to assess any gaps.

The supply chain portal is the first port of call for business opportunities and tenders for this industry.

We are delighted that the NWL Chamber and Cuadrilla have agreed a protocol which will ensure that the business community in Lancashire will be the priority in Cuadrilla’s tendering processes and decision making.

Lancashire is very well placed to become a centre of expertise for shale gas operations. But it is not the only region and this window of opportunity is not infinite. Which is why we must all work together now to ensure that our County does become the centre of expertise to register please apply here
