Hansgrohe Ltd has joined the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF), further strengthening the Federation's plumbing and heating sector.

Shower and bathroom fitting manufacturer, Hansgrohe, was founded in 1901. Today, its Hansgrohe and Axor brands offer merchants' customers a comprehensive portfolio to suit a wide breadth of budgets, project types and design aspirations.

Martin Mongan, managing director of Hansgrohe, said: "We are looking forward to playing a full part as a supplier member of the BMF. Builders' and plumbers' merchants are valuable partners who play a key role in servicing the residential market, which is an important part of our business."

BMF managing director John Newcomb said he was delighted to welcome Hansgrohe to the BMF.
