SNE has awarded five-year contracts, with an option for two-year extensions, under the Geotech framework contract.

“Significant five-year contracts not only benefit our key supply chain partners, but the thousands of companies who work for them too, providing them with the surety they need to invest in their people, innovation and value for money,” says Mr Kris Kinnear, interim regional director for SNE.
