DHF’s Ongoing Growth Prompts New Office Move

DHF (Door & Hardware Federation) has located its operations to a new and improved facility on the outskirts of Tamworth. 

‘The Barn’ at ‘Shuttington Fields Farm’ has been home to the trade association since 3rd September and offers significantly larger office space, together with a state-of-the-art training academy and parking for more than 40 cars. 

New premises for DHF
It is located just four miles from junction 11 of the M42. The move has been prompted by DHF’s tremendous growth in both employees and membership, particularly in the past ten years and will yield considerable cost savings, with training and meetings being carried out on-site.

“The federation has doubled in size in terms of membership and staff over the past five years, which is, of course, great news, but it is essential that we continue to offer a first-rate service to our members and support that growth with appropriate levels of resource,” explains DHF’s CEO, Bob Perry. “We have been at our Heath Street head office for more than 31 years; a move was long overdue.”

DHF’s growth has been due, in part, to an increasing uptake of its training courses, with more than 2300 delegates completing one of its four courses on offer since the launch of the Gate Safety Diploma in September 2013. 

DHF’s new premises will offer state-of-the-art training facilities

‘The Barn’ houses a top-of-the-range training academy which will accommodate 25 people. This will save the association vital funds previously spent on hiring venues across the country to host courses. The majority of training will now be undertaken in-house, however, DHF will continue to hold courses throughout the UK to ensure everyone can access a course. Additionally, DHF will be hiring out their facilities to external organisations.
“Our new office facilities herald a fresh chapter for DHF,” continues Bob. “We can now confidently support our on-going growth and expansion and continue to deliver value for our members. And the new training academy will facilitate a positive, learning experience for all attendees.”

To make life easier for candidates, DHF has also secured corporate rates for accommodation at nearby ‘Best Western Appleby Park Hotel’ for those attending training courses. Candidates can book directly with the hotel.
