526 Media Group concluded the acquisition of Bedford Falls Communications (BFC) at the end of August. The new owner is keeping on all the employees and will continue to perform the existing activities in their present form. The former BF owner John Aufderhaar will continue to provide consulting services and run the office in Watertown.

Amongst others, Bedford Falls Communications publishes the quarterly trade magazine “Surface and Panel”, which is oriented above all towards the North American wood-based panel and surfaces industry. In the Internet, the company operates the two websites surfaceandpanel.com and materialicious.com. From 2010 to 2014, BFC had assisted the Technical Conference Management KEG (TCM) with the execution of the Decorative Surfaces Conference in North America. In North America, TCM meanwhile works with Material Intelligence. BFC had initially organised an independent “Surface & Panel Symposium) in 2015 and 2016. Since 2017 and in cooperation with the Composite Panel Association (CPA) BFC has been organising the “Material, Technology & Design Symposium”, which is held twice a year parallel to the wood-based panel association’s Spring Meeting and Fall Meeting. The next event is the Fall Meeting in Denver, Colorado, from 6 to 8 October. CPA and BFC also publish a “Surface & Panel Buyers Guide” one a year. The latest issue for 2018/2019 has a total of 220 pages.
