Palmer Timber becomes an exclusive FunderMax distributor

As it approaches its centenary year, West Midlands-based Palmer Timber has announced a new partnership with internationally renowned FunderMax, to bring the company’s range of specialist Interior laminates to the UK market.

The addition of the highly durable and decorative FunderMax Interior range sees Palmer Timber expand its already impressive portfolio of products. As a major supplier of hardwood, softwood and panels to an extensive range of industries throughout the UK, the company has combined its large stockholding with strong machining capability and expert knowledge to ensure customers can rely on a premier, smooth running service from order to delivery.

Paul Bettridge, of Palmer Timber, comments: “We’re delighted to be working in partnership with FunderMax. We’ve been looking to reinforce our product range with a high quality interior laminate solution for some time, and Max Interior certainly does this. This is a new venture for us, as we’ve never stocked a compact laminate before and so we’re enthused and eager to bring these products to the UK market.

“We’ve invested a great deal into our internal infrastructure to ensure our working processes are at their optimum, and that everything’s stored and delivered correctly – eliminating the potential for any problems.”

Stock began arriving in December and is continuing to do so. Once complete, Palmer Timber will have a full range of 30 decors in both compact laminate and thin high pressure laminate (HPL). Additionally, the company will have 16 matching decors in moisture resistant melamine faced chipboard (MR MFC), and will be introducing Max Resistance – a highly durable, chemical resistant laminate, to the UK market too.

Paul Bettridge adds: “All stock is FSC accredited (70% mix), and I believe that this is a unique position to be in, as it’s rare for distributors to be able to hold manufacturers’ compact laminate products as FSC material.”

Mark Hillyer, from FunderMax concludes: “We’re really pleased to have Palmer Timber on board as a UK distributor and are excited about what the future holds. It’s great for the trade to see a new distributor coming into the mix. And we’re so impressed with how Palmer Timber has invested in its processes and infrastructure in order to meet the potential demand for our Max Interior range.

“Great things are on the horizon, and customers should expect a strong delivery performance, wherever they happen to be in the UK, with a portfolio of FSC certified products all available from stock.”
