We mirror the expertise which makes our ‘Find Suppliers’ function an exciting place to source a local supplier. FinditintheBlackCountry promotes keeping work local and we have a range of businesses listed from plumbers & electricians to marketing agencies, to landscapers to construction companies. To link up with a supplier, either visit our ‘Find Suppliers’ page or post your requirements as an opportunity. This can be done via our ‘Opportunities’ page where you can ask for the best local quotations.

Business owners are coming under increasing pressure to improve their company’s profits by reducing operational costs.

With access to thousands of local suppliers, we give you the chance to compare prices from local suppliers by posting an opportunity either to all companies registering in a chosen sector or let you select who you want to send it to. You'll be able to benchmark your costs and consider more local sources for cost-effective products and services. It’ll help you reduce your carbon footprint, too.

Simply register your business on FinditintheBlackCountryso that you appear in the ‘Find Suppliers’ section. It is beneficial for a variety of employees from different departments of your organisation to register their details. For instance somebody from business development may want to receive our regular event emails and want to attend a breakfast meeting to network, whilst a member of your procurement team may want to keep an eye on the opportunities posted, or post an opportunity themselves.

Want to source something for your business? Visit our 'Post an opportunity' page and type in your requirements. Then sit back and wait for local suppliers to contact you with quotes.

FinditintheBlackCountry shouts about our members’ good news and local news. We are dedicated to promoting stories about work won from events and opportunities posted on our website.

Our marketing team will promote your good news on the site, within newsletters and in press releases.

The ‘News Page’ is free for our Black Country-based members to share their good news and success stories, and you can also read about sector-specific current news in the private and public sector.

It’s simple…. Get posting your business opportunities, contracts and requirements on the portal. It has been designed to promote our world class supply chain in the county, but in order for it to grow, it is vital that we all make the local economy stronger by sourcing the products and services from local suppliers.

You can do this by searching for a supplier, posting an opportunity or attend one of many networking events, where local companies talk business on their doorstep. You can also spread the word about the good work we are doing and encourage friends and colleagues to register.

In return, we are talking to the decision-makers in major organisations across the county, to ensure that they boost business activity across the local economy by highlighting contracts to local businesses and giving them access to more and more work.

Our opportunities page lists dozens of private and public sector tenders, and supply chain opportunities are available via our supplier pages and ‘meet the buyer’ events. And what’s more, our new function Quick Quote can enable companies to post an opportunity to selected suppliers, digitalising the buying process and creating an audit and legal trail all in one place. It promotes the sourcing and procuring of materials and services from local suppliers which in turn filters down opportunities to the supply chain and supports the local economy. It’s quick, it’s simple… it’s Quick Quote!
