Thanks to ongoing growth and planned expansion leading South Wales construction company Morganstone is looking to expand its supply chain in the Swansea Bay Region.
Morganstone held an over-subscribed Meet the Buyer event at Swansea’s Village Hotel in April. The event was designed to engage sub-contractors and suppliers within the Swansea Bay Region to deliver Morganstone’s programme of new build homes, schools, care homes and public buildings in Wales over the coming years. The event was attended by over 50 contractors and suppliers from the local region.
Morganstone has its headquarters in Llanelli and is operating sites across South Wales, including Swansea’s Quayside development and Schooner Way in Cardiff Bay.
Morganstone is enjoying a year of unprecedented growth seeing turnover increase from £18.5 Million last year to £24 million this year. This year also saw Morganstone recognised in the region winning awards at both the Swansea Bay Business Awards and the Carmarthenshire and Llanelli Business Awards, as well as nationally at the Considerate Constructor Scheme awards in London.
Morganstone’s Head of Commercial and Finance, John Durkan, said: “Morganstone’s Meet the Buyer events are a vital part of ensuring we have the most skilled and able contractors in our supply chain to deliver our developments. We were delighted with the high attendance on the day from a wide range of suppliers and sub-contractors from the Swansea Bay Region and look forward to working with them in the future”
“This is very positive news for our economy and events like this always highlight just how many skilled tradespeople, sub-contractors and suppliers we have to call upon in the local area. We are pleased to be a part of the success story of Welsh construction and it is positive to see continued investment being made in the Welsh economy and infrastructure.”
