BMF Regional Centres of Excellence gain momentum

Published:  18 October, 2016

The roll out of the Builders Merchants Federation's Regional Centres of Excellence is continuing to gain momentum, with three new centres launched in less than 10 days.

The Centres will give BMF members around the country access to the Federation's training and events on their doorstep.

Encon Insulation in Chorley (pictured), is providing the facility for the BMF’s first Regional Centre in the North West.

Ridgeons' Green Light Centre in Cambridge, created to train customers on its range of sustainable products, became the first BMF Centre in the Eastern region.

Meanwhile, the Keystone Group's design, production and distribution centre in Cookstown will provide meeting and training facilities for the BMF in Northern Ireland.
