BFM launches industry networking event at Ercol

The British Furniture Manufacturers (BFM) has organised the first in a series of regional industry events, developed for the furniture community to network and share best practice.

Taking place at Ercol’s manufacturing headquarters in Princes Risborough on 7 April, the BFM Regional Event is free-to-attend and open to BFM members and non-members.

The event will be held after working hours - from 6-9pm - and includes a tour of Ercol’s factory, which appeared on BBC2’s popular ‘Inside The Factory’ in January.

Sean Holt, BFM Managing Director, said: “We're delighted that BFM member Ercol is hosting the first of our regional events. It's a superb location for us to get together.

“The purpose of the evening is to bring the furniture community, both BFM members and non-members alike, together to create networking opportunities and share best practice.

“There'll be an opportunity to listen to, and discuss, contemporary issues and challenges facing the industry and to generally increase understanding and knowledge.

“It’s important the furniture community has a chance to come together, particularly after all the limitations of the last few years.”

Ian Peers, Ercol Operations Director, said: “As a member of BFM, Ercol is delighted to be playing its part by hosting what we believe is a much-needed opportunity to bring people together to share ideas and discuss some of the challenges facing the sector post the pandemic.

“I'm looking forward to welcoming colleagues from across the region to the Ercol factory, and giving them a tour of our facilities.”
