Building relationships with suppliers.
At Tony Dicker we can provide start-up businesses in the Bristol area with help and advice. Here are some basic considerations regarding suppliers and purchasing.

Sit down with them as 'partners' and try to work out an arrangement that benefits both parties.

In a period of economic difficulty or uncertainty, remember that suppliers might raise their prices, so try to negotiate a long-term discount with them.
You could also consider putting all major costs out to tender on a regular basis.
If you are starting a business in the Bristol area and would like help and advice, contact Tony Dicker.
