In Detail

FinditintheBlackCountry is pleased to announce EBC Group as official partner of its latest meet the buyer event offering countless supply chain opportunities to work on the planned Black Country tram extension. 

The event at the Copthorne Hotel in Brierley Hill, Dudley will see local firms benefit from the planned project which will cover a variety of works packages from engineering to landscaping, cleaning and lighting and many more for the 11.5km tram route. Midland Metro Alliance wants 80% of procurement to be with local businesses, meaning the economic benefit of the congestion-busting scheme is felt before the line has even carried its first passengers.

The team has also recently announced that it has been shortlisted as one of the top providers in the annual CloudTango list of UK Managed Service Providers 2018, as well as ranking in the Tango100 list of global MSP's. The lists, which primarily focuses on businesses delivering managed IT and cloud based services, recognises the top performing Managed Service Providers (MSP) and their services.
