Clacton-on-Sea: Major distribution deal for Dura Composites

DURA Composites has secured a major distribution deal with national timber importer and merchant Arnold Laver for its Dura Deck range of timber composite decking products.

The deal makes Arnold Laver the first official UK stockist of Dura Deck, which consists of 87% recycled timber and polyethylene.

Stuart Burns, director at Dura, which is based at Clacton-on-Sea, said: “As a world leader in the design and manufacture of sustainable building materials, we are delighted to join forces with a company as established as Arnold Laver.

“Their reputation for delivering great products and a great service across a wide range of customers and market sectors makes them an ideal partner.

“Our eco-friendly product range provides a clear point of difference for their business while access to their extensive customer base provides us with a fantastic new distribution channel. It’s a great deal for all concerned.”

Pat Burke, group purchasing director at Arnold Laver, added: “As a solutions provider, we pride ourselves on recommending the right material for each job; and with Dura Deck we could see that this product would give our customers another credible option when it comes to decking projects.

“Sometimes an installation can demand a certain material specification where timber is just not right. Dura Deck can now fill that gap”.
