JCB becomes latest BMF Regional Centre of Excellence

Published:  30 March, 2017

The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) has teamed up with JCB to help make training courses more accessible to the Federation’s members in Staffordshire.

The BMF has traditionally held training programmes at its Coventry headquarters. Now the courses are being rolled out across the UK to locations known as ‘BMF Regional Centres of Excellence’ – and JCB has just become the latest such centre.

The first meeting was held at JCB Compact Products, in Cheadle, and now the company will host further regional meetings and training sessions throughout the year as part of its commitment to the Federation. Courses focus on a range of subjects from estimating building quantities to maximising margins.

JCB industrial business development manager Darren Brookes said: “We are delighted to host the BMF members for training and regional meetings. They are doing a great job of bringing together different elements of the supply chain and we are looking forward to playing our part in the West Midlands area.”
