Meyer joins the BMF

Published:  23 May, 2016

Meyer has joined the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) and will also host the next BMF Timber Forum at its state of the art training centre in Stoke on Trent on 29 November.

David Siggins, Meyer’s commercial director, said: “There couldn’t be a better time for us to join the BMF. We are constantly reminded how little is known in the market about the European Standards that define the performance of wood-based panel products. The mismatch between specification and product is causing significant problems in the Builders Merchant sector and becoming part of the BMF is our opportunity to address that.”

Meyer is happy to provide product and technical training to any BMF member who wishes to learn more.

John Newcomb, BMF managing director, said: “We are delighted that Meyer has embraced the ethos of the BMF, of suppliers and merchants supporting each other to benefit the whole building materials supply chain. We are particularly pleased that they are opening the doors of their training and exhibition centre to host our next BMF Timber Forum, which I am sure will provide great value.”
