The Builders Merchants Federation has launched a Regional Centre of Excellence with the support of ADEY, global water treatment and magnetic filtration manufacturer.

As a BMF Regional Centre of Excellence, ADEY’s state-of-the-art Training and Conference Centre, based at its headquarters in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire will make training courses and regional meetings more accessible to BMF members in the South West.

ADEY is an industry-leading pioneer, having brought magnetic filtration technology to the market 15 years ago, its MagnaClean filters are now protecting heating systems in more than five million UK homes. The company also now trades in more than 30 countries including China, USA, Australia, New Zealand and across Europe.

John Newcomb, BMF CEO, said: “This is a fantastic centre that has been used before by BMF members, and we are extremely grateful that they are officially opening it to our members now. We look forward to holding more South West meetings here, along with our own training courses for members in the region.

John Vaughan, ADEY’s Chief Executive Officer, added: “In becoming a regional hub for members, we’re helping the BMF to provide tangible support to others in the industry, ensuring those in the area can benefit from attending regular forums and training courses. We’re really pleased to be part of this BMF initiative and look forward to welcoming its members to ADEY.”
