Lakes Bathrooms has joined the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) as a supplier member.
Lakes Bathrooms has been supplying builders’ merchants for more than 30 years. An independent family business set up in 1986, it has built a strong reputation in supplying high quality shower enclosures to the trade, backed by reliable service and support.
Sales & Marketing Director Mike Tattam comments: “Builders’ merchants are a key target market for our business so it’s important we look at new opportunities to strengthen relationships and build our brand in this sector. The BMF is a prominent industry body that has grown strongly over recent years. It’s therefore a sensible step forward to join. I’m confident it will give us a new platform in which to position and build our brand in this market.”
Tewkesbury-based Lakes Bathrooms is renowned for its first class customer service, speed of delivery and for creating products that are ‘superior as standard’ yet affordable. Its portfolio includes classic and contemporary designs and framed, semi-framed and frameless doors, screens and enclosures to cater for all tastes and requirements.
Lakes Bathrooms’ PureVue glass, which has minimal iron content to reduce the green hue found in standard glass to near zero levels, results in glass that is clearer, lighter and brighter and comes as standard at no extra cost on its Classic, Coastline and Island collections. Another feature available free of charge on products within these ranges is the company’s AllClear protective coating, which is applied to both sides of the glass to help users keep their enclosure looking as good as new with minimal effort.
The BMF represents and protects the interests of builders’ merchants and suppliers to the merchanting industry in the UK. Through its membership, Lakes Bathrooms will benefit from training, development and professional support opportunities through a variety of services and key events where members can meet and exchange ideas with fellow merchants, suppliers and leading industry figures.
BMF CEO John Newcomb says: “We are delighted that Lakes Bathrooms has joined the BMF and appreciates the value of being part of a strong trade body. I am looking forward to working with them in the coming months.”
