A number of SZC’s registered suppliers were invited to attend a ‘Meet the buyer webinar’.
The suppliers heard from key speakers:
- Ashley Shorey-Mills, Head of Sizewell C Supply Chain Engagement, Suffolk Chamber of Commerce
- Tom McGarry, Head of Stakeholder Engagement, Sizewell C
- John Brooks – Delivery Director- Site Establishment & Operation
The webinar was followed by an opportunity to engage with key members of the Sizewell C procurement team to discuss specific work packages in an intimate, 20 minute 1-2-1 meeting. In addition to the exclusive 1-2-1 meetings, an open room networking arena was available where suppliers were able to ask more general questions about the Sizewell C project.

A copy of the slide presentation by Tom McGarry and John Brookes is also available below.
With recent changes regarding the COVID-19 unlocking regulations, we took the decision to move the planned event in July to a virtual event. In addition, we also had to take the decision to limit the work packages and number of buyers to a smaller, more defined set of parameters.
We are already planning our events for the Autumn, where a wider variety of areas and work packages will be covered. We will send out more information on these events in the very near future.
“We were really pleased to meet up with so many Suffolk businesses who were passionate and keen to work on the Sizewell C project. The event was a great opportunity to talk about what we require in the early stages of the construction of the power station and to hear what local businesses can deliver, it is clear to us that Suffolk has a lot to offer.”
Kurt Hutcheon on behalf of the Civils programme Supply Chain
“Local Businesses, who have been proactive with their approach to the Sizewell C Supply chain and registered on our dedicated portal, have really benefitted from this meet the buyer event. The feedback so far has been un-reservedly positive and the excitement amongst local businesses is clear to see”
