BMF announces Training Company Award finalists for Members’ Day

Published:  15 August, 2017

The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) will once again present a Training Company of the Year Award at the BMF Members’ Day Awards Dinner on 20 September. This year there are nominations from each of the five BMF Regional Managers across the UK.

The award is awarded to the BMF merchant member company who has invested heavily in their team during the last 12 months by utilising a variety of BMF training courses and solutions such as the Branch Managers Forum, Master Merchant, the BMF Diploma and Postgraduate Diploma, as well as apprenticeships and training courses. Last year’s winner was Parker Building Supplies.

This year’s five finalists are Haldane Fisher, Howarth Timber, TG Builders Merchants, LBS and Chandlers Builders Supplies. All of these merchants have shown not only a commitment to training as a core element of their business, but have demonstrated their support of the BMF by using the Federation for the majority of their training solutions.

John Newcomb, Chief Executive Officer of the BMF, said: “Ongoing commitment to training is a vital part of any successful business. This award is a great way of recognising the outstanding commitment by our more active merchant members. We would like to congratulate all of this year’s finalists and look forward to announcing the winner at Members’ Day on 20 September.”

The BMF’s annual Members’ Day Awards, sponsored by Encon Insulation, will take place after the BMF Members’ Day Conference on 20 September at the Jurys Inn Hinckley Island Hotel in Leicestershire. You can book your place at Members’ Day now at or for more details contact June Upton at
