Product & Company News

 
Back to Work

After an almost 5 month break (due to the Covid-19 lockdown), we are delighted to announce that in July, our factory staff returned to work, fulfilling customer's orders and to begin replenishing stock that had been sold in the preceding months.

Reduced Packet Sizes

Due to changes that are being imposed by many of the UK carriers with regards to maximum parcel weights, we will be reducing our bulk sizes for Greyboard, Millboard and PVA. With the boards, we will now be supplying wrapped bundles of 20kg and with the PVA, our largest container is now a 20kg drum. As a result of these changes, the prices for these products will be reduced at a pro-rata rate.

These changes start with the PVA, which has already come in to effect. Changes to the Greyboard and Millboard bundle sizes will follow in due course.

Please let us know if you have any queries regarding these changes.

Greyboard Bundle Sizes

Further to our announcement in August, our standard Greyboard is now being sold in bundle sizes of 20kg (down from 25kg). The Greyboard is available in 5 thickness:

1.00mm - *43 sheets per 20kg bundle
1.50mm - *28 sheets per 20kg bundle
2.00mm - *21 sheets per 20kg bundle
2.50mm - *16 sheets per 20kg bundle
3.00mm - *14 sheets per 20kg bundle

*These quantities may occasionally vary.

Further details and costings can be found here.
