The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) has launched its 22nd Regional Centre of Excellence (RCoE), and the third in Scotland, at Superglass Insulation in Stirling.
The growing network of BMF Regional Centres of Excellence aims to make training courses and regional meetings more accessible to BMF members throughout the UK and Ireland.
Superglass Insulation produces thermal and acoustic glass mineral wool products to exacting standards, evidenced by the recent £37m investment in state of the art manufacturing facilities which will reportedly double output at its Stirling base.
The BMF’s latest RCoE is situated at the Superglass Futureworks Innovation Centre, a resource for architects and industry professionals alike. The 3,000sqft facility combines meeting space for up to 40 people with a product demonstration area showcasing the latest products.
John Newcomb, BMF Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted to open our third Regional Centre of Excellence in Scotland. It’s a fantastic centre for members to meet and attend BMF forums and training courses. I look forward to meeting many local members there in the future.”
Andy Murray, UK Sales Director at Superglass, said: “We are thrilled to have the Superglass Innovation Centre designated as a BMF Centre of Excellence. Innovation is at the heart of our strategy and corporate culture, and we believe this is most successful when undertaken in a spirit of collaboration with our trade partners. This opening is testament to that commitment.”
