International Timber Launch Product Guide at Timber Expo

International Timber, one of the UK’s leading suppliers and importers of sustainable timber, enjoyed another successful year at Timber Expo as one of the lead sponsors. Along with showcasing its extensive product range, the company also launched a comprehensive 226-page product guide.

The new product guide is a first for the timber supplier and provides technical data on International Timber’s unrivalled product range which includes tropical, temperate and European hardwoods, clear and structural softwoods, joinery timber, panel and modified timber products.

It also provides detailed information on Chain of Custody, timber certification and key industry issues as well as case studies that show the products in-situ, making the guide the ultimate specification aid.

International Timber’s team of experts were also available throughout the exhibition to discuss products and answer visitors’ technical queries.

For those visitors who were up for a challenge, there was the chance to drive a fork lift truck, albeit it a remote controlled model, around the timber yard and take part in the ‘Timber Yard Challenge’. Participants were tasked with moving a box around the course in the shortest possible time, without incurring health & safety penalty points for hitting stationary timber packs and walls. A leader board was on display throughout the two days with the two fastest people each day winning one of the remote controlled forklift trucks.

Tony Miles, managing director of International Timber, comments: “Last year’s Timber Expo enabled us to raise awareness of our offer and share our expertise with all levels of the timber supply chain.

“This year, we displayed our extensive product range, which has recently been extended, and launched our brand new product guide which is set to become a highly beneficial resource for anyone looking to specify timber for a project. We also introduced a fun element to our stand with the ‘Timber Yard Challenge’ which saw many show visitors pit themselves against the ‘Stig’ to try and get the fastest time around the track.”
