Five builders merchant companies are on the shortlist to receive a BMF training award from the Builders Merchants Federation this September.
The BMF will present a Training Company of the Year Award again at BMF Members’ Day Awards Dinner on 20 September.
This year’s five finalists are Haldane Fisher, Howarth Timber, TG Builders Merchants, LBS and Chandlers Builders Supplies. All of these merchants have shown not only a commitment to training as a core element of their business but have demonstrated their support of the BMF by using the BMF for the majority of their Training solutions.
The award is won by the BMF Merchant member company who has invested heavily in their team during the last 12 months by utilising a variety of BMF training courses and solutions such as the Branch Managers Forum, Master Merchant, the BMF Diploma and Postgraduate Diploma as well as apprenticeships and training courses. Last year’s winner was Parker Building Supplies.
BMF Chief Executive John Newcomb said “Ongoing commitment to training is a vital part of any successful business. This award is a great way of recognising the outstanding commitment by our more active merchant members. We would like to congratulate all of this year’s finalists and look forward to announcing the winner at Members’ Day on 20 September.”
