BWF Launch Woodworking Made in Britain Initiative

11 October 2016

The British Woodworking Federation (BWF) has launched a new ‘BWF Made in Britain’ initiative for use by its joinery manufacturing and woodworking member firms to promote their role in bolstering the British manufacturing industry.

This is not an inward looking campaign, it is a rally call. The joinery and woodworking industry needs to be recognised for the value we offer, to use our collective voice to influence the commercial and political environment post Brexit.  We are proud to be BWF members and British Makers, and it is critical that we work together to promote the benefits that we deliver to the market and the wider economy.

The woodworking industry is a key part of the UK’s manufacturing sector. BWF members supply products into almost every major construction project, with private housing, commercial and domestic repair, maintenance and improvement markets the most significant users.

The UK joinery market is worth about £3.8 billion a year, with an estimated 60,000 employees and the highest ratio of apprentices in the construction sector.  In its widest sense woodworking (combining carpentry and joinery) remains the highest sector of employment in construction. BWF represents more than 700 member firms accounting for a combined turnover of over £1 billion a year.

BWF Members can login and download a copy of the new logo below.

Please note that it is illegal under the Trade Descriptions Act 1968 to mislead the consumer into how, where and when a product was made. If your organisation import any of its product range, you should not use this logo, unless the imported products are sold as part of a separate range and clearly highlighted as such. Any member that downloads this logo and uses it in the promotion of good or services does so entirely at its own risk. BWF does not accept any liability for any claim made against it or any member in relation to the use of this logo for advertising or any other purpose.
