Builders Merchants Federation MD visits our factory

Posted on September 5, 2013 by Thomas Dudley Ltd

We recently welcomed Builders Merchant Federation managing director John Newcomb to our head office.

As a business, Thomas Dudley has invested well over £9 million in the last three years. John Newcomb enjoyed a tour of our foundry and bathroom products divisions and commented “A lot of plastics manufacturing has moved to China, but Thomas Dudley designs, makes and assembles an array of small components into market-leading products. I’ve been fascinated to see the process for myself, and I am also proud that the BMF can boast so many supplier members who, despite the trend for outsourcing, continue to manufacture in the UK.”

Thomas Dudley is a longstanding member of the BMF and sales and marketing director, Simon Fleet, chairs the BMF Young Merchants Group. Fleet said: “I’ve been involved with the BMF Young Merchants Group for about four years, the last 12 months as chairman, and it’s a great way to network with the younger generation coming up through merchants and manufacturers.

“Dudley has worked in partnership with plumbers and builders merchants for over 40 years and they are as much our heartland as the Black Country itself. So you can see why it is important for us to play an active part in the BMF, even more so now with the changes that John is implementing to make the organisation more inclusive and representative of the whole industry.

“We are very proud of our heritage but have an extremely modern manufacturing facility here, and I’m delighted that John took the time to come along and see that.”
