BMF opens Regional Centre of Excellence

City Plumbing

The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) has launched its latest Regional Centre of Excellence at Travis Perkins Omega Centre in Warrington.

The growing network of BMF Regional Centres of Excellence made training courses and regional meetings more accessible to BMF members around the UK and Ireland, according to a statement. The latest centre, based in Travis Perkins’ Omega Centre in Warrington, served BMF members in the North West region.

Chris Ives, supply chain director for Plumbing and Heating at Travis Perkins, said: “We are thrilled to be able to support the Builders Merchants Federation. Omega is a state-of-the-art facility solely dedicated to delivering great service at low cost to our City Plumbing and PTS branches and customers.

“Over the last 12 months we have step changed our performance to support our business with online fulfilment but maintain our traditional values of a huge range available next day in branches. It’s great to strengthen our ties further with the BMF by inaugurating this site today as a Regional Centre of Excellence in the North West and we look forward to working with them and hosting many training events, regional meetings and offering networking opportunities for them in the future.
