Infrastructure services and engineering company Amey is to carry out an engagement programme with supply chain partners to foster better relations.
The company has launched a new “Voice of the Supplier” survey to provide feedback on the issues and topics that matter most to its suppliers.
It said over the coming months Amey Secure Infrastructure would launch a suite of tools to ensure the organisation continued to build long-lasting relationships with its supply chain.
Amey said the project would also give its Secure Infrastructure procurement team complete visibility of opportunities, innovation, and challenges within its supply chain network.
Amey has a national footprint working with local communities and the government, managing and maintaining strategic UK assets. The company said 80% of its suppliers were SMEs and it was committed to spending £40m with social enterprises by 2023.
Craig McGilvray, managing director, Amey Secure Infrastructure, said the company’s supply chain partners played a critical role in helping it deliver key services.
“Every year we spend £1bn with small businesses and social enterprises,” he said. “By taking time to listen and learn together, we are creating an environment that supports collaboration, innovation, safety and improves the service we deliver while making sure that Amey is playing its part in unlocking regional growth.”
