Flamco UK has joined the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF). The BMF is the only UK and Ireland organisation that represents and protects the interests of merchants and suppliers in the building materials supply industry.
Flamco manufactures and distributes system components for heating, cooling and potable water installations. Its best known in the UK for its range of expansion vessels, its accessories for heating and cooling installations, such as its popular Prescor Safety relief valves, it’s Flexvent automatic air vents and T-plus units designed to provide perfect system branches in pipework without needing to drain systems. Most recently it is becoming known for its revolutionary new water treatment system – RedProtect – that includes a system filter and cleaning and inhibitor chemicals which are in a solid format rather than the usual liquid or gel.
“As we grow and diversify in the UK and Ireland heating and plumbing sector, it makes huge sense for us to become members of relevant trade and industry bodies,” said Flamco Sales Director John Lynch. “We are becoming an established business in the sector now and we sell our products through national and regional builders and plumbers’ merchants and buying groups, most of whom are members of the BMF. We’re looking forward to a long and happy relationship with the BMF in the months and years ahead.”
BMF CEO John Newcomb said: “We are delighted that Flamco has joined the BMF and appreciates the value and opportunities available as part of a strong trade body. I am looking forward to working with Flamco and assisting their growing team.”
