2017 BMF All Industry Conference to be sponsored again by FAKRO

For the third year in a row, FAKRO has confirmed its headline sponsorship of the BMF (Builders Merchants Federation) All Industry Conference in 2017.

FAKRO  is one of the fastest growing manufacturers of roof windows in the world.  In the UK, distribution is via major builders merchants nationwide.  With a service and support offer geared to the merchant market, the company’s long-standing relationship with the BMF is a natural extension.

BMF MD, John Newcomb commented: “We are delighted that FAKRO is to sponsor the BMF All Industry Conference for a third time. The last two have both been hugely successful, with delegate numbers increasing each year. We have already started planning for 2017 and it promises to be the best event yet, so watch out for details of dates and venue later in the year.”
