Henshaws MD Selected as Trade Body Chair for the North West

A Greater Manchester businessman has been selected by a national trade association to play an integral role in championing the building materials industry in the North West.

Adrian Shelley, the Managing Director of Manchester and Rochdale based Henshaws Roofing and Building Supplies, has been appointed by the Builders Merchants Federation as Regional Chairman for the North West region.

The Builders Merchants Federation Ltd (BMF) represents the interests of builders’ merchants and suppliers to the building materials industry across the UK.


With 870 merchant, supplier and service companies – who together have combined sales of £42bn and employ over 230,000 people – the trade body represents a considerable element of the UK economy.


Henshaws Roofing and Building Supplies was formed in 1985 and Adrian, who has decades of experience in the industry, acquired the company in 2019.


Adrian said: “I’ve been so fortunate to have had a long and fulfilling career over the last 25 years in the builders’ merchant sector.


“There comes a point when you realise it is the right time to give something back to the industry that has supported you so well.


“As members of the BMF for many years, I’ve experienced first-hand the help and support the BMF offer every one of their members, both large and small.


“If I can help them with my experience, then I’m very happy to do so as Regional Chair for the North West region.


“I look forward to working with the team at the BMF and the members in our region in the future.”


John Newcomb, BMF CEO said: “Adrian has worked in both the corporate merchant and independent merchant sectors in a variety of roles from estimator and surveyor to divisional director and now Managing Director at Henshaws Roofing and Building Supplies.

“His knowledge and experience are an asset to the BMF and we are delighted that he is taking the lead in our North West region.”
