Knauf Insulation's Earthwool DriTherm Cavity Slab .

Knauf Insulation to supply National Buying Group

Published:  19 April, 2013

Knauf Insulation is to supply the National Buying Group (NBG) with Earthwool glass mineral wool this year and next.

NBG’s 87 member companies will stock and distribute Earthwool Loft Roll, Earthwool DriTherm Cavity Slab and Earthwool Flexible Slab.

Alan Boyd, managing director of Otford Builders Merchants and team leader for NBG insulation, said: “One of our main reasons for choosing Knauf Insulation was the quality of the product and strength of the brand, enabling us to offer a market-leading product at competitive prices.”

David Adams, commercial director of Knauf Insulation, said: “We have invested significant effort into researching the needs of our merchant customers, concentrating particularly on tailoring our product lines and services to more closely match their requirements.

“For example, as the Green Deal drives the sustainable retrofit market forward, contractors are taking on a much wider variety of work – and their product requirements are similarly evolving. So while we recognise that loft and cavity wall solutions remain important product lines, we are also able to provide a comprehensive product portfolio over and above these, demonstrating the added value we can provide our merchant customers.”
