Timbmet managing director Nigel Cox has joined the Builders Merchant Building Index (BMBI) as the expert for timber and panel products.

Featuring from the Q1 2016 report, Mr Cox will speak exclusively for the timber and panel products market, explaining issues, trends, and new opportunities.

Timbmet is a national supplier and distributor of hardwood timber, engineered timber and panel products. Established for over 70 years, its 200,000 sq ft distribution centre in Shellingford and milling facility in Glasgow ensures it is well placed to support its network of depots with an extensive range of products.

Mr Cox said: “We are pleased to join the BMBI as the expert for our market. It’s a great initiative to raise awareness of our industry to a wide audience. BMBI provides a platform for experts to educate, inform and explain their own markets and add perspective to overall trends and issues. I’m excited about the plans to develop BMBI and am pleased that Timbmet is speaking exclusively for timber and panel products.”

John Newcomb, managing director of the Builders Merchants Federation, added: “It’s great to have Timbmet on board. Their support endorses the growing awareness and significance of BMBI to our industry. We’ve only just scratched the surface with our plans to develop understanding of our markets and leading brands outside the industry.”

Other BMBI experts include: Knauf Insulation, Keylite, Hanson Cement, Keystone Lintels, Crystal Direct, IKO and Alumasc Water Management Solutions.
