Meet the Buyer
Meet The Buyer events have always been part of Esh Group’s procurement process, with the format evolving each year to ensure shared benefit for both our suppliers and commercial teams.
We appreciate considerable time and expense is put into hosting and attending Meet The Buyer events. Therefore, it’s important they are structured to be as beneficial as possible, ensuring potential bidders are well informed, and know exactly what will be expected of them during the procurement process.
We hold annual and project-specific Meet the Buyer events, promote them in advance and provide information including a detailed background of our organisation, the opportunities available, a live demonstration of how to complete tender documentation and an opportunity to meet one-on-one with our procurement and commercial teams.
Esh Group is a signatory of the Prompt Payment Code and support timely payments to our supply chain. We appreciate how important our suppliers are to our operations. To demonstrate our ongoing commitment to the code we are committed to paying our suppliers on time, giving clear guidance and encouraging good practice.
We maintain strong relationships with our 450 core material suppliers. We have a 60-day payment term and are currently paying invoices between 42-44 days.
Suppliers and Subcontractors
Where our suppliers and subcontractors are concerned, Esh Group recognises the impact of our operations on the local economy in the communities where we work – it’s our aim to use long-term suppliers and subcontractors within the communities where we work whenever possible, and we particularly encourage Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to work with us.
We always seek to minimise any negative environmental impacts of goods and services purchased, and we manage and monitor our suppliers and subcontractors to ensure that fair contract prices and terms applied are ethical and human rights and employment standards are met. Our tried-and-tested procurement system incorporates pre-award and performance review processes to provide practical data and promote best practice at all times.
If you are a supplier or subcontractor interested in working with Esh Group contact us via http://www.eshgroup.co.uk/contact-us/ and we will forward your details onto the relevant person.
