Horizon Coatings Inc. and Snows Timber have announced an exclusive distribution agreement for Provincial Plank in the UK.
The deal will see the Canadian interior cladding hit the UK market for the first time. Provincial Plank is described as an easy to install interior wall cladding product that incorporates the natural, rustic characteristics of wood.
The primary use is said to be for accent feature walls in both residential and commercial settings. Made in Canada from Canadian hardwoods including maple and ash, the FSC Mix certified product features the naturally occurring characteristics of knots, grain swirls and colour variations.
Samples of cladding will be available upon request and the companies are seeking a case study or project to showcase the wood in situ and the ease with which it can be installed.
Speaking of the new deal, Chris Martin from Horizon, said: “We are delighted to finalise this deal with Snows for the exclusive distribution of Provincial Plank in the UK. We have been expanding quickly and we see the UK as a prime market for growth, especially given how mature and fashion forward it is. We’re hopeful the UK will be an anchor for even more international distribution and we can’t wait for the British to experience the amazing quality of Canadian timber.”
Ian Church, MD of Snows Timber, added: “Canada produces some of the best quality timber in the world and this is a fabulous product for the UK market. With the surging demand for indoor wood cladding as people search for more natural interiors, we are delighted to be bringing this to UK consumers and trade, exclusively and for the very first time.”
