Advantages of joining BPIF in the North West
January 20, 2010 by Lyndon
The British Printing Industries Federation (BPIF) is probably the UK’s leading organisation which offers support to printing businesses. Their membership includes firms from UK print, printed packaging and graphics communications industries.
The North West region has a substantial printing industry presence. Some printing companies in Bolton, for example, are already members. The organisation offers an unrivalled range of products and services to its members. They can offer support and advice on health and safety issues, jobs, environmental questions, personnel support, finance, regional information and products. In addition to this BPIF also run special interest groups and are involved in research projects.
The federation offers three levels of membership. Silver level offers a networking web and provides members with regular information on key issues confronting printers. Gold level has the added benefit of telephone support from professional advisors, covering every aspect of your business. Platinum level is the most comprehensive offering on-site support from regional business advisors.
The printing industry is highly competitive in the best of times. With the tough economic climate that print companies are experiencing at the moment it is perhaps now essential to belong to a professional support organisation. If there are other Printing companies in Bolton who have not yet considered membership of BPIF, now is perhaps a good time to think about the benefits of becoming a member.
As North West regional director Chris Selby said:
“If you are not in you are definitely missing out”
