is the latest business to join the Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School (BVGS) Corporate Partnership Programme, which officially launched at the start of February.
Owner Barry Field and his team at BRF have been supplying and fitting carpets and floor coverings for commercial and domestic customers across the West Midlands for over 30 years.
Field comments: “The issue of school funding is never far from the headlines and it’s good to see a school adopt a different approach to coping with the already tight budgets schools are facing. “I began working with the school over 10 years ago and since then I’ve worked with them on a regular basis, supplying and fitting floor coverings throughout classrooms and other public areas.
“The education sector is important to us and the quality of our work at BVGS has stood us in good stead to win contracts with other schools, typically needing carpet tiles or vinyl flooring for high-traffic areas. “Fitting carpets and other floor coverings is a personal business and it’s particularly important for domestic customers to be able to trust a supplier to carry out a quality job, whilst always respecting their home. “Highlighting the need for trust and consistently high quality work, the majority of our clients come from referrals or through Which? Trusted Trader and ratedpeople.com, both of which we’re members of.
“Partnering with the school has been a great experience so far; we’ve already built relationships with some of the other Corporate Partners at various networking events the school has organised. “I’ve had other discussions with staff and parents of students at the school who are very interested in our unique offering – we’re the carpet showroom that drives to you.”
Brian Davies, Development Director and Deputy Director of Sports at the school comments: “It’s great to welcome Barry and the team at BRF carpets to the partnership.“Barry’s experience with the school and the high-quality of his work, paired with his flexibility, has made BRF carpets a perfect Corporate Partner. “One that not only supports this school in these difficult times, but also helps support our other Corporate Partners, staff and parents of students at the school, who are looking for a trustworthy company to carry out the installation of their carpets and floor coverings.”
