Listers Join the British Plastics Federation (BPF)

Leading manufacturer Lister Trade Frames Ltd has now become a member of the British Plastics Federation, the chief trade association of the UK Plastics Industry.

As well as providing a valuable platform for action the BPF Group Network draws together specific sectors of the industry forming a dedicated information loop and networking forum. This gives Listers the ability to input or raise industry concerns and play a constructive role in the development of legislation and standards.

The new membership means that Listers now receive weekly updates regarding new Legislation, Legal support, Sales leads, Reduced Cost Training, and help in addressing Energy Costs. The BPF also offers many other informative and developmental services that Listers will now have access to, which in turn will benefit their customers.

On behalf of the BPF, Tim Marsden, Industrial Issues Executive for Construction said,

“We are very pleased that Listers have decided to join the BPF and strengthen the Windows Group brand. Listers have a good reputation in the market place and their membership will not only help the BPF understand the ‘sharp-end’ of the market but will also help Listers to promote themselves with the wide range of tools we provide.”

With environmental concerns a top priority for Listers, the new membership provides them with the opportunity to challenge some of the unfounded anti-plastics rhetoric by highlighting PVCu’s environmental credentials. Listers are keen to make this case in order to clarify the benefits of PVCu for the public and commercial sectors. Sustainability is a key BPF topic at the moment and the new membership allows Listers to gain further access to advanced, forward-looking issues, supporting their proactive approach and helping them to maintain their position at the forefront of energy efficiency and environmental management.

Mark Warren, Managing Director at Listers, is looking forward to the extra benefits that the membership will bring,

“Joining the BPF demonstrates our determination to stay ahead of and influence industry developments. We are positive that the BPF will best represent our interests and the interests of our customers and are pleased that the leading trade association will be working on our behalf, alongside other plastics businesses, to exploit common opportunities and resolve shared problems in the industry.”

With our industry undergoing unprecedented change, Listers believe that being at the forefront of developments with the BPF will ensure that they and their customers continue to thrive.
