NI manufacturing procurement portal launched

3 March 2020

New online portal for the manufacturing sector in Northern Ireland is a new website that links suppliers with large manufacturing companies throughout Northern Ireland to support local buyer and supplier connections.

The NI-wide portal developed by Mid & East Antrim aims to drive growth in the manufacturing sector. 

This new resource offers the following potential benefits:

  • Buyers and suppliers have instant access to a wider local market.  
  • If you are a local supplier, the portal enables you to link your company and products to a range of buyers in the manufacturing sector with the potential to increase sales. 
  • If you are a major buyer of parts and components from outside Northern Ireland, the portal will enable you to source your manufacturing products online from local suppliers, potentially saving you time and money.

The features of the portal allow both suppliers and buyers to create a business profile, manage users and keep track of applications. The system notifies suppliers automatically when buyers are seeking new products and services.
