Buy Supply NI
From today, Northern Ireland companies will be able to source a number of supplies of PPE and social distancing products from the BuySupplyNI portal. Mid & East Antrim Borough Council, with the support of Invest NI, have been working to adapt the existing site which services the manufacturing industry, to provide a means to match buyers with local suppliers throughout Northern Ireland to access the products needed to return to work safely.
BuySupplyNI was initially developed by Mid & East Antrim Borough Council’s Manufacturing Taskforce, an industry-led collaboration developed between local businesses, council and key stakeholders as a means to link manufacturing, construction and engineering companies across Northern Ireland with local suppliers of components and services.
The site now features a dedicated Covid-19 Supplies section for suppliers and buyers across all industry sectors to register for free and upload the products they can supply or detail the products they require. This is a NI-wide initiative and with participation from Northern Ireland companies it can be developed to fill the current and growing need for PPE and other social distancing supplies during the pandemic.
