The Door and Hardware Federation has doubled in size in the past five years, and so it has relocated to a bigger premises.

After 31 years at its old site, the trade body recently moved from Heath Street in Tamworth, Staffordshire, to Shuttington Fields Farm on the outskirts of the town.

The new site has larger office space, a new training academy, and parking space for more than 40 cars.

It will also save the Federation money as it can now carry out training and meetings on-site, rather than using other venues.

The DHF says the move was prompted by its growth in both staff and employees, particularly in the last ten years.

CEO Bob Perry (pictured) said: “The Federation has doubled in size in terms of membership and staff over the past five years, which is, of course, great news, but it is essential that we continue to offer a first-rate service to our members and support that growth with appropriate levels of resource.

“We can now confidently support our on-going growth and expansion and continue to deliver value for our members.”
