Supply Chain Conference and Awards 16

On Friday 22nd April 2016, DES hosted their inaugural Supply Chain Conference and Awards at The Village, Blackpool. It was a chance for DES and our Supply Chain to get together to share DES’ ambition going forward collaborating with the support of the supply chain.

We see our supply chain as much more than just sub-contractors and suppliers. They are a proud extension of DES. Therefore our aim is to make our supply chain a reflection of our company. As a result we make huge efforts to choose the right companies, and to maintain and improve our relationships with them over the long term.

Our approach is to build strong, open and positive relationships with suppliers and providers which share our values, and to make them an integral part of our business.

Engaging with a fully integrated supply chain throughout the construction process, from initial bid through to award and practical completion, will provide all involved with new and exciting opportunities.

These elements worked as the foundation of the Supply Chain Conference and Awards seen throughout our presentations. The talks included Our Vision, Health and safety, Quality, Estimating, Design and BIM and Our Visibility.

Following on from this was the long anticipated awards ceremony where we presented some of our supply chain with trophies who had truly gone above and beyond, excelling within their winning category.
