The Saint-Gobain group had a major presence at Ecobuild with both Saint-Gobain and Jewson stands pulling in visitors.

The Jewson stand promoted its own brand, but also those of sister companies Pasquill Roof Trusses, International Timber and International Decorative Surfaces.

“We’re promoting timber as a building system, not just as a component,” said Matt Lewis, sales manager for contractors.

Jewson also highlighted its chain of custody timber and the range of products and services marketed under the Greenworks brand, including energy, sustainable heating and water-saving solutions.
