The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) has launched its latest Regional Centre of Excellence with the support of PageGroup. 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 PageGroup’s London office in Victoria House, Holborn, will serve BMF members in London and the South East. Victoria House, which overlooks Bloomsbury Square, offers excellent meeting accommodation, and is now available to the BMF and its members.

John Newcomb, BMF CEO, said: “This is a fantastic centre that is well used by PageGroup’s clients, and we are extremely grateful that they are opening it to our members too. We look forward to holding London/South East meetings here, along with our own training courses for members in the region.

"The first meeting to take place at the new centre will be the BMF board meeting on 8 March.”

Andrew Ward, Director at Page Executive, said: We’re delighted that PageGroup’s London office has been selected as a BMF Regional Centre of Excellence.

"With over 40 years’ experience of working with merchants and suppliers within the building materials sector, this will not only strengthen existing relationships with BMF members, but also allow us to promote best practice talent attraction and diversity / inclusion strategies, both within the industry and attracting top talent in from other sectors. This will be key to sustained success throughout the rapidly changing construction industry.
