Acquisition of Forge & Farrier by the BFBA

Published: 27th October 2020

After a lot of careful consideration, I am pleased to confirm that Forge & Farrier has been acquired by the British Farriers and Blacksmiths Association (BFBA).

Since its launch in August 2007 I have been extremely fortunate to have received the support of so many farriery manufacturers and suppliers in addition to the thousands who visit the website both from within the UK and across the world. Thank you.

As many of you are aware, I am responsible for pr and marketing at the BFBA, and have worked for them in a freelance capacity since July 2019. The current BFBA website has been hosted within Forge & Farrier since 2016 and, as BFBA continue to evolve and expand their presence both off and online, the acquisition of Forge & Farrier provides an established online presence from which to create new and exciting opportunities. From a personal point of view, Forge PR & Marketing has continued to go from strength to strength and the sale of Forge & Farrier will allow me to capitalise on further pr and marketing opportunities as they arise.

During the coming weeks I will be leading the handover of the existing Forge & Farrier website to bring the BFBA branding to the forefront whilst maintaining the content and features that Forge & Farrier is well known and respected for. I will continue to be responsible for advertising until the end of 2020 and I can confirm there will be no changes to the advertising that is available or the position(s) that you currently hold.

This is an exciting time for both the BFBA and myself. I am confident that the website will further develop (we have lots of ideas!) and continue to thrive as an asset to farriers and blacksmiths both in the UK and abroad. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support over the last 13 years.

Should you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to contact me.
