More than 50 guests from the coatings, printing inks and associated industries gathered last week to celebrate a new chapter in the 106-year history of the British Coatings Federation. The Lord Mayor of Coventry, councillor John Blundell, together with BCF president David Beckford and BCF CEO Tom Bowtell, cut the ribbon on the trade body’s new home - Spectra House - in Westwood Business Park, Coventry.
The two-floor building houses BCF staff at ground level, with three dedicated meeting rooms.
Bowtell said: “We’ve put together a great new back office team to support the members from our new home - we look forward to welcoming members and guests to Coventry in the near future.”
Beckford added: “It is a fantastic milestone in our recent history to be able to afford to invest in our own building, and gives us a long term secure location for our members to meet.”
