BuySupplyNI is an online portal for the manufacturing, construction and engineering sectors. It is an easy way to link suppliers with large companies throughout Northern Ireland to facilitate local buyer and supplier connections.

If you are a major buyer of parts and components, the BuySupplyNI portal enables you to source the products online from local suppliers. It will put your company and the products you need in front of a wide range of suppliers, facilitating you to make connections to buy locally, improve procurement speed and efficiency, build relationships and create supply opportunities, saving you time and money whilst increasing your audience exposure.

For local suppliers interested in supplying to companies the BuySupplyNI portal will enable you to promote your company and showcase the range of products you offer directly to a wide range of potential buyers in the manufacturing, construction and engineering sectors with the potential to increase sales. Buyers with an appetite to buy local have direct access to the site, which ultimately allows you to make better connections to sell more and grow your business.

The purpose-built portal’s aim is to help strengthen the local supply chain, identifying locally based innovative suppliers that can respond to the needs of buyers across the province. Ultimately, this will deliver significant benefits to large manufacturing, construction and engineering firms, local SME suppliers and the wider local economy.
