James Latham will distribute Garnica’s poplar plywood in the UK

James Latham, the British timber importer and distributor, has tied up an exclusive UK deal to distribute Spanish manufacturer Garnica’s poplar plywood. According to the announcement the PEFC and FSC-certified range will be targeted at interior and exterior applications, particularly for furniture, caravans, partitions, boat building or applications where weight may be an issue as the product is very lightweight.

Andrew Wright, Latham’s director, commented:

“I can see lots of opportunities where plywood may have previously not even been considered because of concerns over the quality, the price or the provenance.”

The range has seven different product families, but Lathams will initially offer four of these – Efficiency Poplar; treated Duraply; flame-retardant treated Fireshield; and Elegance Birch, a poplar panel with a birch veneer to the face and back.

Earlier James Latham expanded its offer with the latest generation of sustainable solid and composite wood solutions through its nationwide network of depots with both Accoya® and Medite®Tricoya® Extreme.
