A key advantage for the Members of the GDL Network is the rather sizeable reductions in cost available from a variety of different sources.
By joining together in a consortium and with GDL support, our members achieve and implement the following..
Cut costs considerably through bulk buying.
By combining our group purchases on consumables, machines and equipment, we can buy at very competitive prices from the industry’s leading brands; renowned for their superior quality and innovations. This enables our members to retain excellence in their field while maximising profits.
Sharing Ideas and Solutions
Meeting at least three times a year, the whole membership is given the opportunity to discuss a wide variety of topics, share ideas and plan a joint strategy for the future. There is an enormous wealth of expertise within the Membership and because Members do not compete with one another, they are prepared to share this expertise.
Employment Laws / Health and Safety Issues
Through membership with the BPiF Membership, Members also benefit from professional help and advice on matters relating to Employment Law and Health & Safety. The service provides telephone and on-line consultancy on these matters including drafting employment contracts and advice on dealing with employee disputes. In addition, Members receive an annual visit from BPIF consultants to check Health & Safety issues as well as any employment law concerns.
