Dura Composites Leads Nigerian Initiative To Improve Knowledge of Composite Building Products

By Stuart Burns January 30, 2015

DSC_2753Dura Composites has been leading seminars held by their Nigerian distributor WNM Business Solutions, designed to improve the understanding of how composite building products can replace traditional materials such as wood, steel and concrete in commercial and residential projects.

Dura Composites and WNM Business Solutions have been working together since 2014. Over this period WNM has created strong local demand for Dura’s wide range of composite building products including heavy duty industrial fiberglass flooring and timber composite decking and cladding. The decking and cladding products are eco-friendly, durable and have the same beautiful wood grain finish as natural timber. They are equally suitable for new or refurbishment applications in both commercial and residential projects.

DSC_2785Paul Fletcher and Andy Buckingham spent a week in Lagos leading seminars to discuss the opportunities to use composite products and utilize their strength, light weight, durability, and virtually zero maintenance qualities to replace traditional building products. The seminars were attended by developers, contractors and architects from the region as well as key personnel from the Transport sector who are now planning to utilise the light-weight composite technology due to its cost advantages over the product life-cycle.

The trip included several joint surveys of the local market, increased the knowledge base of WNM staff and allows Dura to better support its expanding Nigerian presence with crucial project and product support.
