40 companies in total were honoured for their continued commitment as members of the Federation and over half were personally presented with plaques to commemorate their years of service by BCF’s CEO Tom Bowtell.
Tom Bowtell commented, “over 30 percent of our manufacturer members have been in constant membership for at least 25 years, and 20 members have been with us every year for over 50 years. We continue to serve our members, and it’s a testament to the support levels from BCF staff that we have such loyal members. I’m looking forward to giving out future awards as our Federation continues to grow in membership.”
The Annual Conference and its accompanying dinner, took place mere days after the attack on Manchester, and donations were collected at the event in support of the Red Cross Manchester Emergency Fund, and evening celebrations cancelled in honour of the victims. To date, the collection has raised over £4,000.
