The Worktop Fabricators Federation

The Worktop Fabricators Federation is a trade body linking firms involved in the manufacture and fitting of solid stone worktops in the UK. It is sponsored by a number of key industry suppliers – suppliers both of granite and quartz and of machinery/tooling.

The Worktop Fabricators Federation is committed to cooperation and excellence in the following areas:

  • Health and Safety
  • Environmental issues
  • Quality and General Professional Good Practice

Our industry is not an easy one to keep safe. And there is no shortage of fabricators willing to take shortcuts – either with their staff safety or with the quality of your worktops, or both. By grouping together to set high standards and hold each other to account, the WFF hopes to raise standards. Specifically, the Federation hopes to provide some assurance to the public that, when you buy from a WFF member company, you will get good, honest advice, an installation which keeps an eye on safety and the environment, and a sense that you are getting a quality product and service, and not using cowboys or fly-by-nights.

The WFF was formally launched at the KBB Show in Birmingham in March 2020.

Why buy your worktops from a Worktop Fabricators Federation Company?

You, our customers, can rely on companies who are members of the WFF to strive towards best practice in manufacturing, keeping their staff and those around them safe. While we do not warrant individual members’ delivered work, our members aim to continuously invest in training, processes and technology to deliver the very best and most dependable service, and to trade ethically at all times.

Our members will have workshops where Health and Safety are controlled and managed. They will train their staff, pay their taxes, insure against public risks and commit to keeping up with developments in the Worktop industry
