INDUSTRY NEWS The British


Coatings Federation joins the Construction Products


Association to add more value to its members


According to figures


from the Department for Business, Innovation


and Skills (BIS) Coatings are the most exported construction product in the UK and this month, the BCF has


joined the Construction Products Association.


As a top ten Trade Association, the


Construction Products Association has a very


high profile with access to Government, and


membership will provide increased visibility for the Coatings Industry and its members.


As part of this initiative, and as an example of increasing our visibility, BCF participated in the Construction Products Association’s high profile exhibit at the BIS Headquarters in London for two weeks in April. BCF member products were on show, alongside display boards articulating what we add to the economy. At the launch, BCF’s Tom Bowtell had the chance to meet the Rt Hon Michael Fallon MP, Business Minister, to reinforce the contribution that coatings make to UK PLC, who said “The construction products market is worth billions to the economy each year supplying projects of all sizes across the country and overseas with quality British-made goods.


“This showcase held by the Construction Products Association demonstrates just how innovative and world-leading the sector is, and is just one of the ways Government and industry is working together to challenge outdated perceptions that as a country we don't make anything anymore.”


Diana Montgomery, CEO of the Construction Products Association said “We are delighted to have the British Coatings Federation as members of the Construction Products Association.


They are a vital part of the construction supply chain and by BCF joining the Construction Products Association, all individual paint manufa- cturers are also now members of the Association and can benefit from our services and support.”
