A building materials’ specialist from Folkestone has been recognised for his commitment to the industry.

National trade body The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) and Builders’ Merchants News (BMN), have joined forces to identify the Top 100 Young Achievers across the multi-billion-pound building materials sector, and shine a light on the brightest stars of the future.

Sam Warburton, Retail Operations Manager at FFX Group, based in Folkestone, has been nominated for the accolade based around his achievements within his career so far, and having a positive impact in the sector.

He said: “I’m really happy to be nominated as a Top 100 Young Achiever.

“I’d like to thank past and present colleagues at FFX for growing me and my career in the right direction.

“The builders merchant industry is an interesting yet exciting industry and I am glad to be paving the way to the future with the other Young Achievers.”

The Top 100 Young Achievers programme follows last year’s Top 100 Merchant Influencers and Top 100 Supplier Influencers in 2022 and 2023.

John Newcomb, Chief Executive of the BMF, said: “The BMF is an active supporter of young people working within the building materials supply sector and this initiative celebrates the contributions of those who will carry the industry forward in the future and work to make a material difference.

“After the success of our previous initiatives, we’re delighted to be partnering with BMN to highlight the achievements of the Top 100 Young Achievers.

“This accolade reflects the positive influence Sam has had on the people around him and on the wider building materials industry.”

The Top 100 Young Achievers will feature in a commemorative brochure and be invited to a Gala Dinner celebration and networking event at the Belfry in May.

The BMF represents more than 950 merchant and supplier companies that collectively employ more than 208,000 people in the building materials industry, performing an essential national function in distributing construction materials and home improvement products across the UK.
