The Builders Merchants Federation has launched its latest Regional Centre of Excellence at Keystone in Swadlincote.

The growing network of BMF Regional Centres of Excellence is making training courses and regional meetings more accessible to BMF members around the country.

The latest centre, based in Keystone’s office in Derbyshire, will serve BMF members in the East Midlands.

John Newcomb, BMF CEO, said: “The centre was opened during our BMF East Midlands regional meeting. This is a fantastic centre that is well used by Keystone’s clients, and we are extremely grateful that they are opening it to our members too. We look forward to holding future meetings here, along with our own training courses for members in the region.”

Adrian Forbes, Group Sales Director of the Keystone Group, said: “We are honoured to be associated with the BMF with two regional Centres of Excellence, and consider it a significant milestone in our progress and maturity as a business.

“We look forward to welcoming the BMF team and members to Swadlincote, and Cookstown, for many years to come.”
