The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) has launched its 22nd Regional Centre of Excellence (RCoE), and the third in Scotland, at Superglass Insulation in Stirling.

Superglass RCOE Nov18 HR 28229

The growing network of BMF Regional Centres of Excellence is making training courses and regional meetings more accessible to BMF members throughout the UK and Ireland.

Superglass Insulation produces thermal and acoustic glass mineral wool products to exacting standards, evidenced by the recent £37m investment in state of the art manufacturing facilities which will double output at their Stirling base.

The BMF’s latest RCoE is situated at the Superglass Futureworks Innovation Centre, a unique resource for architects and industry professionals alike.  The 3,000 sq ft facility combines contemporary meeting space for up to 40 people with a comprehensive product demonstration area showcasing the latest products.

John Newcomb, BMF Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted to open our third Regional Centre of Excellence in Scotland. It’s a fantastic centre for members to meet and attend BMF forums and training courses. I look forward to meeting many local members there in the future.”

Andy Murray, UK Sales Director at Superglass said: “We are thrilled to have the Superglass Innovation Centre designated as a BMF Centre of Excellence. Innovation is at the heart of our strategy and corporate culture, and we believe this is most successful when undertaken in a spirit of collaboration with our trade partners. This opening is testament to that commitment.”
