“Diverse Opportunities in Energy Construction” was the theme of the open house co-hosted by NPL and its parent company, Centuri Construction Group, along with the Pacific Southwest office of the National Minority Supplier Development Council (PSMSDC). The event took place on Tuesday, June 28 at the Marriott Phoenix Airport. Current and potential suppliers were invited to attend the special presentation and interactive panel event which featured leaders from NPL as well as Centuri and a number of its operational subsidiaries including NBC Traffic Control, and National Powerline. Presenters were able to meet with potential suppliers and provide insight into Centuri’s procurement process – what is bought, how suppliers are chosen, and what procurement opportunities exist. The presentation was followed by a Q&A session and chance for suppliers to network. This is the second open house NPL and Centuri have participated in supporting the PSMSDC. In addition to these regional events, NPL and Centuri exhibited at the 2015 National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) conference and expo in San Diego, and will exhibit together again at the 2016 event slated for October 23-26, 2016 in Chicago.
