Don't just take our word for it...

  • NOF have been extremely proactive in recommending us to members they feel would benefit from our expertise. The events run by NOF are very useful and productive, from sharing best practice and innovations, positive networking to sharing industry knowledge and challenges. The team are great and the wider membership all buy in to what NOF are trying to achieve. There is a desire to help their members increase business and collaborate.

  • NOF organised a major supplier event on behalf of Dogger Bank Windfarms (DBW) working with both Equinor and SSE as the two partners on the project. The event attracted around 300 delegates and gave us an excellent platform to present about the project and more importantly meet key suppliers on a one to one basis. Not only did NOF organise a first-class event, they also managed to attract new and innovative supply chain companies which met our key objectives on the day.

  • Since joining NOF, the team have unfailingly provided an excellent service and whenever we have requested guidance or assistance, they have always responded positively and with efficiency... it’s very assuring knowing we have NOF’s valuable support in helping us grow our association with companies of interest to us.

    Another important factor I would like to point out, the team are always extremely friendly and courteous and always happy to assist which is a rare quality found in today’s world.

This valuable information then allows members to better position their business for future work.
