Trade contractors and suppliers are being invited to a “meet the buyer” event next month to find out about construction opportunities on a new £15m research and development centre in Wolverhampton.

Aerospace giant Moog is building the centre at the new i54 business park.

The client will also unveil the winning main contractor for the job at the council-organised event on March 2.

Local contractors will have the chance to find out more about the development and speak directly to key decision makers from Moog and developer Stoford.

Stoford Development Director Daniel Gallagher will announce who has won the contract to build the 190,000 sq ft factory and outline plans for the project, which will create scores of jobs for local trade contractors.

Wolverhampton City Council’s Economic Development team are working closely with Moog and Stoford to arrange local procurement opportunities.

Council chief executive Simon Warren said: “This development is fantastic news for local construction companies and I would like to invite them along to Meet The Buyers at the business breakfast on March 2 in order to find out more about some of the opportunities which may be available to them.

“This is a major development which we hope will be the catalyst for further investment in i54 and help improve the fortunes of the wider Wolverhampton economy.”

The business breakfast is at the Hayward Suite, Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton, on Wednesday March 2, 2011. It is free and begins at 7.30am with registration from 7.15am. It will conclude with a free breakfast.

To find out more, or to book a face-to-face meeting with key decision makers,  emailclaire@finditinwolverhampton.co.uk or visit www.finditinwolverhampton.co.uk.
