Member Testimonials

When looking at becoming members of industry organisations, there was no question in our minds about joining RFM. They instantly appeared to be an organisation with it’s members at the heart of what they do and this has proven to be the case. They are proactive in establishing a relationship with their members as well as adding value and supporting you where they can, this is an excellent service. Anturas joined to help increase our market presence, the networking opportunities RFM presents are invaluable in supporting this as well as other profile raising activities they offer.

Cath Leech, Managing Director, Anturas

One of the first things I did when I started at Retail Furniture Ltd was to become a member of RFM. Having been a member with previous employers I recognised RFM’s importance for SME’s within the Rail Sector. RFM offer unprecedented access to the “right people” both customers and other SME’s through an extremely well organised and varied networking and events programme. The RFM team collectively have an invaluable insight in to the needs of the Rail Sector for both current and future requirements and are a valuable source of information from supplier engagement activities to access to regional and national funding for R&D work.
