BMF turns to the lightside with latest Tools Forum
10 February 2020
The BMF turns to the lightside with its latest product Forum which will focus on Tools, Fixings and Workwear.
To be chaired by Simon Bicknell, Marketing Director at Toolbank, the
Tools, Fixings and Workwear Forum will meet for the first time on July
7, 2020 at BMF’s head office and training centre in Coventry.
BMF CEO, John Newcomb said: “Simon is the ideal Chair for our latest
Forum. He has worked in different commercial roles within the tool trade
for over forty years, as a retailer, manufacturer and distributor, and
has a wealth of experience to share.”
Simon Bicknell said: “I am really pleased to be able to help the BMF
co-ordinate the sharing of some of the best ideas and excellent
initiatives that are being practised throughout the industry. We know
that products like Tools, Workwear, PPE & Fixings are a relatively
small element of a merchant’s business, but they are absolutely
fundamental to every trade and task so it will be good if we can help
raise their profile.
“One of the benefits of working as part of the Toolbank team for many
years is that I have met and worked with many great suppliers, customers
and influencers from several markets and we will be encouraging them to
share some of their best initiatives and successes with BMF members.”
The first Tools, Fixings and Workwear Forum will include speakers from
Stanley Black & Decker, Dickies, Reisser, Band of Builders – a
registered charity set up to help members of the UK construction
industry battling illness or injury through practical projects - and
Rachel Fryer from Merrit & Fryer, winners of the Lightside Showroom
of the Year in the 2019 Builders Merchants Awards.
