More than 200 timber products company directors have been named as ‘Entrepreneurs of the Year’ by industry analyst Plimsoll Publishing Ltd. It now plans to present them with on-line ‘awards’.

It recently completed a study of 2,684 directors of 1,000 companies in the UK timber products industry and concluded that the success of a company can be directly related to the directors that run it.

Plimsoll is presenting awards to the directors in five categories and the winners will be posted on its website – oftheyear.htm – on June 11.
