Charles Brand Telecoms recently welcomed a number of their key supply chain partners to their HSEQ Supplier Engagement Day in Co. Antrim. The two-day event was attended by a range of suppliers from “Poling” and Tree Surgeon Teams, to Civils Subcontractors.
The contractors and suppliers are successfully delivering the roll-out of Project Stratum right across Northern Ireland. Project Stratum was developed to address rural broadband problems throughout Northern Ireland. The Northern Ireland Executive, through the Department of the Economy and Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) is committing £165m to the initiative. The aim of Project Stratum is to ensure that every home in the region will have access to full fibre broadband by 2025.
Our Supply Chain are a fundamental part of our business here at Charles Brand. Their expertise, professionalism and efficient delivery allows us to successfully deliver our projects to budget and programme. Today was an opportunity for us to present our businesses core values and highlight our performance in terms of HSEQ. It also allowed to listen to our supply chain partners on how we can drive efficiencies within the business and we were delighted to see so much enthusiasm at the event. We’re already looking forward to the next one!Robin McKay, Operations Manager
