Coillte Panel Products (CPP), the TTJ Awards Panels Trader of the Year sponsor, incorporates the Medite (MDF), SmartPly (OSB) and Medite Tricoya (Extreme Durable MDF) brands.

As a leader in the panels market, CPP recognises the importance of continual innovation and this has never been so significant with the recent introduction of the EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) in March and the impending move from the Construction Products Directive (CPD) to the Construction Products Regulation (CPR), on July 1, 2013. CPP has embraced these developments and the opportunities they provide by continually innovating to meet the growing technical requirements of the construction industry.

It’s most recent innovation, SmartPly’s ToughPly, is a fully certified, legal and sustainable OSB3 alternative to tropical plywood. The general builders’ board provides a solution for a variety of applications such as roofing, sheathing and boarding. The product can even be used where a structural solution is required by the Building Regulations.

This is the 10th year of SCA Timber Supply’s sponsorship of the TTJ
Career Development Awards.

Together, SCA and Timber Trades Journal, through its coverage of training and skills, provide the industry with encouragement towards greater professionalization. Continuous learning benefits companies and individuals, and ultimately creates a better foundation for business. Companies from timber importers to builders' merchants and joinery firms have entered their staff for the Career Development Awards. It proves that investing in training and skills creates competitive advantage across the supply chain.

SCA Timber Supply is proud of its dedicated decade of promoting skills
development through the TTJ Career Development Awards. We encourage you to show your strength to your peers in the industry and beyond and enter the 10th round of SCA’s sponsored Career Development Awards.

As a former winner of the Softwood Trader of the Year Award, Snows Timber Ltd is pleased to be involved in the ongoing sponsorship of the Timber Trades Journal Awards in London.

The event has become a fixture in the timber trade calendar as it offers not only a great opportunity for meeting people from across the industry, but also a rare chance to recognise the successes and achievements of companies and individuals in all sectors of timber trading, production and development.

As timber traders across the world enjoy a deserved reputation of being a highly sociable group, it seems entirely appropriate that the post-awards drinks should be sponsored by one of the UK’s leading softwood importer/distributors. Snows Timber Ltd has sponsored the event in this way for a number of years and is delighted to be able to offer all guests a complimentary drink once again after the 2013 awards.

Calling all Timber Innovators!

The winner and shortlisted entrants will also be given the opportunity to feature their entries at Timber Expo, held at the NEC, Birmingham on September 24 - 25.

Successful entrants will also be granted exclusive speaker slots in the extensive Toolbox Talks, enabling a lucky few to present the secret of their success.

So, if you can answer ‘YES’ to any of the following questions, then we want to hear from you!
- Are you a provider of innovative products and services?
- Have you made groundbreaking improvements in your supply chain?
- Are you re-engineering an existing product or system to perform even better?

W Howard is delighted to be sponsoring the TTJ Plywood Trader of the Year Award for the 10th year. Although for the last 18 years we have concentrated solely on manufacturing MDF mouldings, the timber trade is still at the heart of our business life. Having started trading as a timber merchant in 1958, with five generations of experience in the trade dating back to the 1870s, we have it in the blood too!
As with all engineered timber products, our range of primed, veneered and foil-wrapped MDF skirting, architrave, windowboard and door linings offers the trade a modern and extremely viable alternative to solid timber.
W Howard is proud to sponsor this award. Our aim is to support and celebrate the success of our customers who are timber and builders merchants and to recognise their achievements, as well as honour the high standards they offer throughout their businesses.
