Encon Academy named BMF Regional Centre of Excellence
The Encon Academy in Chorley has been awarded the title of Regional Centre of Excellence, a coveted title only presented to 24 locations across the UK which are able to meet the high standards of the Builder’s Merchant’s Federation (BMF).
The official presentation of the BMF plaque to our North West branch this month continues the organisations strategy to expand and strengthen its regional presence, helping support BMF members across the UK.
The event, which saw Peter Worthington (BMF Regional Chairman), Peter Hindle MBE (BMF Chairman) and John Newcomb (BMF MD) meet with Encon’s Merchant Development Director Mike Beard and HR Director Deborah Gore, provided the perfect opportunity for Encon to showcase the hard work that Regional HR Manager John Martin has invested to ensure the facilities at the Academy truly reflect the quality and commitment Encon wants to provide to its customers.
Speaking of the changes to the academy, John Martin commented, ‘we have dedicated quite some time to achieving a space which provides excellent opportunities for training, development and networking. We’re delighted to share this with the BMF, helping its members maintain a base in the North West from which to build their businesses whilst taking advantage of the expertise Encon has to offer.”
Becoming one of the BMF’s Regional Centres of Excellence offers fantastic benefits to everyone involved. The additional brand exposure and greater opportunity to connect with BMF members serves to strengthen Encon’s commitment to independent builder’s merchants whilst the dedicated facility provides the BMF with greater access to the North West region, adding value to their members.
Commenting on the Encon Academy, Peter Hindle MBE described the facilities as ‘excellent’, highlighting how impressed he was with Encon’s dedication to providing a constructive business environment.
Continuing the success of this recent achievement, Encon intends to collaborate with the BMF to add another Centre of Excellence at our East London branch in Spring 2017.
