New office signage completes ASFP rebrand

The growth and development of the Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP) continues apace; having recently gone through a rebranding initiative one of the final steps was to install new signage at the Association’s registered office.

In 2020, the ASFP moved its secretariat and management services to be under the provision of the British Coatings Federation (BCF) at their Coventry-based facility, Spectra House. This move has seen the ASFP’s professionalism and resources grow significantly with the guidance and support of the BCF.

ASFP Business Manager Mike Ward comments: “The installation of the new signage rounds off what has been one of the most challenging years. Moving the ASFP during the Covid-19 pandemic and Brexit transition was interesting. However, recruiting new team members, developing new systems including a CRM, website and YouTube channel, plus initiating the creation of new training courses and learning platforms would not have been possible without the excellent support of BCF.  Each Association is impressive in its own right; however, I think both respective management teams would agree we have all benefited from shared ideas and practices, and we are all the stronger for it.”

BCF Office Manager Nadine Saxon says: “It’s been an exciting first 16 months since being appointed as the ASFP’s secretariat provider.  In supporting the ASFP’s growth and increase in headcount, it’s been really important for us to be able to share in the great facilities and office space here at the BCF. With the return of more face-to-face meetings and training it’s a significant step in the ASFP’s progression to have a home to welcome members and visitors alike.  The arrangement for both organisations has been a huge success with us both benefitting from pooling our shared expertise. We are really looking forward to the continued success of our partnership.”

Members of both associations are encouraged to use the meeting and hospitability facilities at Spectra House, not only because of their central location and value for money, but also because it offers the team an additional chance to meet members and talk about important issues.
