Meyer, a leading distributor for wood-based panels, has joined the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) and will also host the next BMF Timber Forum at its state of the art training centre in Stoke on Trent on 29th November.
Meyer offers a wide choice of wood-based panel products and with over half of its sales into builders’ merchants, the company states that it has considerable understanding of the sector’s needs. A next day delivery service covers all ex-stock orders placed by 5pm whilst the company says it ensures that customers are first to benefit from product innovations and that it provides technical support on the latest European Standards.
David Siggins, Meyer’s Commercial Director, said: “There couldn’t be a better time for us to join the BMF. We are constantly reminded how little is known in the market about the European Standards that define the performance of wood-based panel products. Although all plywood is now classified to European Standards, the specification sector continues to use obsolete terms stemming from the withdrawn British Standards. The mismatch between specification and product is causing significant problems in the builders’ merchant sector and becoming part of the BMF is our opportunity to address that.”
Welcoming Meyer into membership, BMF MD, John Newcomb said: “We are delighted that Meyer has embraced the ethos of the BMF, of suppliers and merchants supporting each other to benefit the whole building materials supply chain. We are particularly pleased that it is opening the doors of its training and exhibition centre to host our next BMF Timber Forum, which I am sure will provide great value.”
