BFM: tell us your issues

UpholsteryproductionThe BFM has called on members to tell it the key issues affecting their businesses during the coronavirus outbreak so it can tell the government.

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has asked the association for feedback on the key issues the industry faces. The BFM is compiling the key points, to send to the department and ensure the industry’s voice is reflected by as many members as possible.

‘It is crucially important that we reflect the voice of the British furniture industry to government at this time,’ says Nick Garratt, BFM md.

The BFM has seen a surge in enquiries from members looking for advice and guidance on the situation.

In response, it is developing a online hub to provide a single point of reference to keep members up-to-speed with the latest developments relating to the industry.

‘BFM staff are fully operational and working to support members during this unprecedented situation. Our bulletins are being produced to a daily cycle, so members can keep up-to-date through that route, and the launch of the new online hub shortly will also provide a useful way of accessing the latest information, says Garratt.

Members with information to report to BEIS can email Nick Garratt directly at
