British Furniture Manufacturers (BFM) is a trade association that has represented the interests of the British furniture industry for more than 60 years. We are run by members for members and the wider industry.
Membership is open to manufacturing companies in all sectors including upholstery, cabinet, bathroom, kitchen, office, mattress & beds.
The supply chain is also important to BFM and our associate members include suppliers, retailers and ancillary companies to the trade.
As a member of the BFM, you get many benefits including solutions, advice and practical support, trade data, opportunities to save costs, grow sales and enhance your profile.
You will also distinguish yourself as being British. The BFM established several years ago the Great British Furniture Campaign, an initiative designed to increase awareness of the key factors that make British made furniture great in the eyes of the consumer, retailers, contract specifiers, architects and the wider international audience. Some of our more recent initiatives include:
- European Timber Regulation (EUTR) guidance and direction
- A bespoke CPD e-learning platform
- An ‘Export Portal’ offering advice, guidance and direction
- Tax helpline offering practical solutions
- A bespoke scheme offering competitive foreign exchange rates
But, we offer so much more too. We invite you to look further at the benefits of joining the BFM.
