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

Ryan Tabb, national key account manager at Mannok, has been nominated for the Top 100 Young Achievers by the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) and Builders’ Merchants News (BMN).

He said: "I am thrilled to be nominated in the BMF Top 100 Young Achievers list.

"I am immensely grateful for this recognition and I am very proud to be part of our fantastic industry."

This honour forms part of a larger initiative that targets the brightest minds within the booming building materials sector.

Previous programmes have included the Top 100 Merchant Influencers and Top 100 Supplier Influencers in 2022 and 2023.

John Newcomb, chief executive of the BMF, shared: "The BMF is an active supporter of young people working within the building materials supply sector.

"This initiative celebrates the contributions of those who will carry the industry forward in the future and work to make a material difference."

In recognition of their outstanding contributions, the selected Top 100 Young Achievers will be included in a commemorative brochure.

Further, they are invited to a Gala Dinner celebration and networking event at the Belfry in May.

BMF and BMN are part of a network of more than 950 merchant and supplier companies employing over 208,000 personnel.

They play a crucial role in the national distribution of construction materials and home improvement products across the UK.

In spotlighting young achievers like Mr Tabb, they celebrate the future leaders of the industry.
