Overview

The BHF Group incorporates the British Hardware Federation, The Cookshop and Housewares Association, Independent Builders' Merchant Services and the British Agricultural and Garden Machinery Association.

It represents nearly 3,500 independent retailers throughout the UK, from single outlets to small chains.

Membership gives retailers the freedom to run their businesses independently, whilst enjoying all the benefits of a corporate affairs head office.

A wide range of services is offered, each tailored to meet specific needs of independent retailers.

These include business and personal loans, a buying group, insurance, special credit/debit card processing terms, stationery, shop design, publications, lobbying and representation.

The Group Information Office deals with some 9000 enquiries each year and publishes 100 plus Factsheets, Position Papers and Reports on new regulations.

Both sector specific and multi functional local, regional, national and international meetings are regularly organised to share information and develop policy.
