Snam’s suppliers are mostly small and medium-sized Italian enterprises (SMES) located in almost every region of the country, consistent with the company’s distribution throughout the territory. In 2018, the SMEs to which Snam assigned work amounted to 399 out of a total of 540 active suppliers. Approximately 753 supply contracts were stipulated, 61% of which in favour of SMEs, for a total of approximately €1,520 million (+80% compared with 2017) of which more than 92% were in Italy and 8% in Europe. The change in the amount procured compared to the previous year should take into account the cyclical nature of the procurement process. During the year about 20 contracts were stipulated for new activities abroad, worth approximately €6.5 million, giving a strong boost to the internationalisation process. The above mentioned data do not include the newly acquired companies: TEP, IES Biogas and Cubogas.
