We're a major driver for the local and regional economy, as well as supporting the wider UK economy. We're committed to supporting local business in their post-pandemic recovery. Together, we will create new opportunities associated with our extensive local supply chain.
Our procurement strategy supply chain spending targets businesses based in the region. We're building on the £100 million spent across the region in 2019.

We’ve produced work for Gatwick – and a large number of other businesses that rely on the airport - for many years including wayfinding signage, graphics, and point of sale materials for many of the airport retailers.
Being officially registered as a supplier with Gatwick helps to ensure we are well positioned to secure future work from the airport."
