Bristan has joined the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF), as a way to “show of support for its merchant partners.”

By partnering with the organisation, Bristan hopes to collaborate on overcoming the challenges affecting member merchants, which is a core channel for the business.

Ian Hansell, General Manager for Bristan, said: “Merchants play a really important role in the industry, providing crucial advice to customers on the products and services that can have a big impact on a build.

“Bristan is continually looking to enhance our merchant relationships and our membership of BMF provides us with the opportunity to support merchants on the issues that affect them most. We look forward to becoming an active member of the BMF group.”
