Latham to distribute Accoya

Published:  04 September, 2009

Titan Wood Limited has appointed Lathams as a national distributor in the United Kingdom for Accoya wood, the highly durable, dimensionally stable and sustainable alternative to tropical hardwoods and less durable species.

Chris Sutton, director of Lathams, said, "Accoya wood fits perfectly into our product range. Joinery products are a significant part of our business and in Accoya we now have a wood that answers the key demands of today's customers. It is a high performance product that requires less frequent maintenance because it is extremely stable. Made from certified woods, it can be safely recycled and it is as durable as the best tropical hardwoods but produced from modified, sustainable, fast growing species. In short, Accoya is a very high quality, long lasting product that is suitable for a wide range of external applications."

Justin Peckham of Titan Wood added, "We are delighted to have signed this agreement. Lathams is a highly professional company, well placed to supply the growing demand for Accoya wood on a national level, whether for windows, doors, decking, cladding or other applications.  We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship."
