Dickies joins the BMF

Published:  21 August, 2014

Williamson-Dickie, one of the largest workwear suppliers in the world, has joined the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF).

Dickies product range is available through many builders’ merchants and the company joins a growing number of lightside manufacturers within the BMF.

Welcoming Dickies to the BMF, John Newcomb, managing director, said: “BMF merchants offer customers far more than building materials; they are a source of many ancillary products including tough and protective clothing for building workers. I’m keen to see every aspect of the merchant supply chain represented by the BMF and I’m delighted that Dickies now see the value of membership.”

Rob Haines, regional sales director at Dickies, added: “Our business is supplying quality products at an affordable price that protect workers from head to toe. We look for partners who represent the same values, standards and quality that the company has embodied since it was founded. I’m pleased to say we have found that in the BMF and we are looking forward to attending our first Members Day in September.”
