Build UK welcomes EFIA - the first fencing trade association to join their membership

EFIA Chairman, Bernard Kilbride

Build UK has welcomed EFIA, (European Fencing Industry Association), as the first fencing trade association to join their growing membership. 

 The voice of the fencing industry and renowned as a ‘hands-on organisation for a hands-on industry’, EFIA, has been serving the professional needs of the fencing industry since 1982 and has more than 80 members, including fencing contractors, manufacturers, stockists, installers, and other individuals and organisations involved within the industry.

Their members are typically companies at the top of their game, not only meeting their statutory obligations, but going much further in providing the highest quality of goods and services. The new partnership with Build UK will offer extended benefits to its – also growing – membership, as EFIA chairman, Bernard Kilbride, explains:
“Being accepted as a member of Build UK is a stringent process and we are therefore delighted to have joined them.” he said. “The new relationship will enable the forging of stronger links with the construction industry by becoming the Trade Association Partner representing the fencing industry, with the further benefits of working together significant on a number of levels. 
In practical terms, our members can access Build UK’s various professional helplines which offer guidance on issues such as employment, health and safety, tax, business, training, legal matters and fair payment. This service isn’t one that we have formally offered to our members previously. We recognise the importance of being able to offer good quality advice to our members, so it’s a new and positive extension to EFIA’s current benefits.”
“In addition, the new partnership provides us with a crucial and direct link to Build UK’s members, with whom many of our own members will already be working. The opportunity for greater communication between all of our members is considerable and this can only be a good thing for the industry as a whole. We look forward to a productive partnership.”

Build UK’s Chief Executive, Suzannah Nichol MBE, said:
“I am delighted to welcome EFIA as the first new Trade Association to join Build UK. As the single representative voice for the contracting supply chain, Build UK represents the best of the construction industry. In meeting the stringent Trade Association membership criteria, EFIA now joins 27 Main Contractors and 40 other Trade Associations in providing a strong united voice for the whole construction sector.”
