Bristan joins the BMF

Bristan, the UK’s number one taps and showers brand, has joined the BMF, in a show of support for its merchant partners.  

As the only trade association for builders’ merchants and suppliers in the UK, the move to join BMF is part of the company’s strategy to continue to assist merchants in the building materials distribution sector and to raise awareness of the issues they face.  

A key aim of the BMF is to be the authoritative voice for merchants and suppliers, working closely with allied industry groups and regulatory bodies such as trading standards and planning departments. By partnering with the organisation, Bristan hopes to collaborate on overcoming the challenges affecting member merchants, which is a core channel for the business.  

Ian Hansell, General Manager for Bristan, commented: “Merchants play a really important role in the industry, providing crucial advice to customers on the products and services that can have a big impact on a build.”  

“Bristan is continually looking to enhance our merchant relationships and our membership of BMF provides us with the opportunity to support merchants on the issues that affect them most. We look forward to becoming an active member of the BMF group.”  

Bristan is a market leading supplier of domestic and commercial bathroom products. For more information visit
