Welcome to BHF
The British Hardware Federation (BHF) is dedicated to the needs and wants of those retail businesses, owners, managers and staff who are involved in the distribution of hardware, ironmongery, tools, DIY and allied products.
Members have access to an unrivalled range of services, and perhaps just as importantly we often forge close personal relationships with other members and with the BHF staff. These services and relationships are a huge benefit to our businesses in good times and bad - it is always good to know that there are always friends and colleagues around who share and understand our aspirations and our problems.
The BHF is at the heart of the British Independent Retailers Association (bira), and I hope that this web site is useful to you, whether as a member or as a prospective member.
Richard Rowlatt, BHF Chairman
