International Timber joins BMF

Published:  08 December, 2014

International Timber, part of Saint-Gobain Building Distribution, has joined the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF).

The company has a global supply network that enables it to source the most sustainable products backed by third-party certification and legal verification. It offers a range of services, including bespoke machining, kilning, finishing and timber treatment, and has expert teams at each of its six sites across the UK to help construction professionals, merchants and manufacturers to choose the right products at the right price.

“Our business focus is geared to supporting customers by offering a fast and responsive local service nationwide,” said Stuart McKill, timber managing director for Saint-Gobain Building Distribution. “The merchant community is an important customer group and we are looking forward to playing a full part in the BMF, particularly within the recently launched Timber Forum.”

BMF managing director John Newcomb said: “The establishment of BMF’s Timber Forum gives merchants and suppliers operating in this sector an environment to discuss common issues and share best practice that will help to develop the market. It is encouraging to see major suppliers responding so quickly to the opportunity it provides and I am delighted to welcome International Timber into membership.”
