The region is undergoing a period of significant inward investment, with many millions of pounds being spent on a number of important infrastructure projects, including the arrival of HS2, the Midland Metro expansion and the Midland Metropolitan Hospital to name just a few.

There will be thousands of business opportunities available within the HS2 supply chain alone, with significant contracts available across all sectors. Spread over a number of years, the work will require a wide range of capabilities and will be suitable for suppliers of all sizes.

The Black Country Growth Hub can help local businesses meet the requirements of Tier 1 contractors or directly through a wide variety of support programmes.

You can register with HS2 to receive supply chain email updates at and also visit the website to discover basic information about available HS2 business opportunities.

We recommend you register your business either as a supplier or a service provider on the opportunity gateway. It’s free to do so and will give you access to thousands of contract opportunities.

The Black Country Growth Hub can help you complete your registration and then develop your business capability to ensure you are in a position to compete for and win work.
