Dura Composites Celebrates Arnold Laver Deal

By Stuart Burns August 17, 2012

The great news from Dura Composites today is that we can confirm a major distribution deal with national timber importer and merchant Arnold Laver.

The company's Group Hardwood Buyer, Peter James (pictured centre) and Senior Sales Executive, Chris Rose (pictured right)  joined me (pictured left) at our UK HQ earlier this week to put the finishing touches to our deal.

The agreement will see our innovative range of Dura Deck timber composite decking products made available to customers at five of the company's 13 UK depots this year, building to all 13 in time for the 2013 deck season.

It makes Arnold Laver the first official stockists of Dura Deck  in the UK, and enables it to provide customers with a premium timber composite option as an alternative to traditional softwood decking.

As a world leader in the design and manufacture of sustainable building materials, we are obviously delighted to join forces with a company as established as Arnold Laver.

Their reputation for delivering great products and a great service across a wide range of customers and market sectors makes them an ideal partner.

Our eco-friendly product range, meanwhile,  provides a clear point of difference for their business.

As Pat Burke, Group Purchasing Director at Arnold Laver, told me: “We pride ourselves on recommending the right material for each job; and with Dura Deck we could see that this product would give our customers another credible option when it comes to decking projects. Sometimes an installation can demand a certain material specification where timber is just not right. Dura Deck can now fill that gap”.

Featuring 87% recycled content, Dura Deck comes with a 25-year manufacturer’s warranty and is made using reclaimed hardwood timber and recycled polyethylene.

It can be cut and worked in the same way as natural timber, features an anti-slip surface and offers barefoot-friendly, easy to install below-surface fixings.

It also doesn’t require staining or painting, needs only basic cleaning and doesn’t suffer from warping, rotting or long-term colour fade.

Dura Composites was recently confirmed as the world’s first timber composite supplier to become FSC ® 100% certified. FSC ® 100% chain of custody certification TT-COC-003905 guarantees the use of FSC ® certified forests in Dura Composites’ production chain.
