The JR Group, one of the country’s leading building and construction firms, is welcoming local SMEs to its Meet the Buyer event in Fife.
Taking place on Thursday 22nd July at Dean Park Hotel, Kirkcaldy, Fife, between 10am and 4pm the construction business is looking to welcome suppliers and sub-contractors covering all areas of construction.
With more than 26 years of experience, The JR Group works with some of the biggest home builders in the country at is west of Scotland base. The Group has a number of projects in the region and is keen to engage with local businesses to partner with to help deliver these key projects.
A selection of The JR Group’s senior team will be on hand throughout the day to meet local sub-contractors and suppliers in a bid for them to become part of its approved supply chain and begin a strong working relationship.
Craig Whyte, Commercial Director for The JR Group said: “We are thrilled to be hosting our Meet the Buyer event in Fife on 22nd July to meet fresh and local talent. It is great way for us to introduce The JR Group to local SMEs and reach out to new subcontractors and suppliers within the local area.
“We have a number of projects in the pipeline here in Fife, starting with the Glen Albyn development – a collection of 49 homes for Fife Housing Group which is due to start this summer. We pride ourselves on being a strong working partner and where possible we are keen to use local teams to help deliver the projects, something we know is incredibly important given the challenges faced by the industry across the country, over the last year and a half.
“The Meet the Buyer event is an informal setting for our people to meet local teams and begin to build relationships. Local suppliers will be able to find out a bit more about The JR Group and will have an opportunity introduce their services, register for our approved supply chain and get advice/help if required on how to become an approved subcontractor with us.
“We would urge anyone interested to come along and speak with us on the day.”
People are welcome to turn up on the day – however to help with COVID restrictions and avoid a wait, people can register by emailing
The event has also been listed on Public Contracts Scotland.
