h&b names International Plywood 2021 Supplier of the Year

Supplier of the Year 2021 hb 002 1h&b has named International Plywood as its 2021 Supplier of the Year at the group’s Annual Members Event at the Belfry. h&b commended International Plywood for its excellent service levels, commitment to the Group and the assistance it gives h&b members, especially at a time of significant shortages in the sector.

Gloucester-based International Plywood provides h&b members with a wide range wood-based panel products including chipboard, hardboard, and block board as well as the eponymous plywood.

International Plywood’s director, Stuart Watts, said: “It’s a genuine honour to receive the recognition from the h&b members,”

“From the beginning of the pandemic we have walked into the unknown with different challenges thrown at us on a daily basis. A fractured supply chain, shortages of raw material coupled with increasing global demand and runaway inflationary pressures has made for an interesting 18 months of trading. Very much like h&b and its members, being independent has allowed us to face these issues head on and adapt to an ever-changing environment whilst maintaining our customer focus.”

International Plywood beat off competition from finalists Mannok, Evergreen (t/a Artificial Grass), Iko Plc, Bostik and PJH Group to win the top h&b award.
