SIG Distribution backs BMF's latest Regional Centre of Excellence

Fixings, tools and building materials distributor SIG Distribution has supported the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) with the creation of its 32nd Regional Centre of Excellence (RCoE).

Hosted at SIG Distribution's state of the art warehouse at Valor Park West London, opened in May 2020, the RCoE provides meeting facilities which can now be used by BMF members for training courses and regional meetings.

SIG's 169,000 ft holds over £3 million worth of stock across all its product areas, with 30 delivery vehicles to support the sales network across London and the Home Counties.

John Newcomb, BMF Chief Executive said: “We may be in the midst of the country’s third national lockdown, but the BMF is looking ahead to the time when industry colleagues can meet in person once more.  SIG Valor Park will provide a superb facility for our members for many years to come.”

Andy Williamson, Commercial Director, SIG UK said: “The new SIG Valor Park site is an extremely well-connected location for transport which makes it an ideal space for regional meetings. We are delighted that our new centre will be supporting BMF members and look forward to welcoming them later in the year.”

The BMF is among the organisations warning of supply chain issues for products arriving in the UK, largely due to a significant shortage of shipping containers.
