The ground floor of the new building, set to open in the second phase, will house the ASFP Academy.

This area is designed to offer comprehensive training facilities, along with the Association’s board room and meeting rooms.

These spaces will be available for both ASFP members and non-members, offering preferential rental rates.

Statement from the managing director

Mike Ward, the Managing Director of ASFP, expressed his enthusiasm about the move: “Having spent several months acquiring and developing our new building to provide modern facilities which will meet the growing needs of the Association and its members, we are excited to finally move into our own office facilities – for the first time in the Association’s history.

“We are hugely grateful to the British Coatings Federation for hosting us in their offices and providing administrative services for the last three years.

However, we feel that the Association is finally coming of age, and we are delighted to finally have ASFP premises of our own.

“We will soon be publishing details of our official opening event and look forward to welcoming members and other stakeholders into our new office facilities and Academy over the coming months.”
