M&Y look to expand supply chain, engaging with local SME contractors across the North West

With a strong pipeline of works, M&Y Maintenance and Construction is encouraging North West based suppliers and sub-contractors to register on their newly improved Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS).

M&Y is an established and continually evolving business, delivering repairs, construction and maintenance services across the North West and have been doing so for the past 40 years.

The DPS will act as a pre-approved supplier framework for the next ten years. All subcontracted works/materials across the business will ultimately be procured via this framework and successful contractors/suppliers will enter formal contracts with M&Y to deliver such services. A DPS is more flexible than traditional frameworks in that users can apply for inclusion at any time; however, organisations must be successfully awarded a place on the DPS in order for them to be eligible to be awarded any works. 

Abbie Kelly, New Business and Support Services Manager at M&Y Maintenance and Construction said: “We started as a family business and we aim to support local companies thrive and grow. Across all our contracts, we aim to use local subcontractors and suppliers at every opportunity.

Since launching our DPS back in November, it has been a roaring success. We have since hosted two supplier engagement events which involved an introduction to M&Y, an overview of the DPS, up and coming projects and much more.

We have invested in our own Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) to procure our supply chain, ensuring fair, equal treatment and a centralised management system that benefits both us and our suppliers and subcontractors.

We also want to engage with local SME contractors, adopting a partnership approach with them to deliver quality services to our customers and clients.”
