‘Tremendous growth in both employees and membership’ has seen the DHF (Door & Hardware Federation) relocate to ‘a new and improved facility’ on the outskirts of Tamworth.
The Federation says last month’s move to The Barn at Shuttington Fields Farm provides significantly larger office space, plus ‘a state-of-the-art’ training academy and parking for over 40 cars. The re-location – to a site just four miles from junction 11 of the M42 – should also yield ‘considerable cost savings’, with training and meetings now able to be held on site.
“The Federation has doubled in size in membership and staff over the past five years, which is great news, but it is essential we continue to offer a firstrate service to our members and support that growth with appropriate resource,” explained CEO, Bob Perry. “We have been at our Heath Street head office for 31 years, and a move was long overdue.”
The DHF attributes its growth, in part, to an increasing uptake of its training courses, with over 2,300 delegates completing one of its four courses since the launch of the Gate Safety Diploma in September 2013.
