Following a successful presence at Ecobuild this March, James Jones & Sons Ltd Timber Systems Division is now capitalizing in particular on contacts made at the show with visitors from Continental Europe.
Business Development Manager for the company, Mark Tilston, said "This was our fourth year at Ecobuild and we anticipated –and got- a great footfall on our stand. The presence of the James Jones & Sons Ltd Group for the first time gave us all a real opportunity to showcase the range of our products and services, from forest to factory-engineered product. The main focus this year was JJ-IntelliRoof™, our panelised roof system, and thanks to the full size JJ-IntelliRoof™ built over the stand, the roof was one of the highest, most prominent and most photographed exhibits at the show, and visitors were able to fully appreciate the benefits of the system."
Mark Tilston continued: "As with previous years, visitors were also attracted by our comprehensive range of eco-friendly engineered timber products such as the FSC certified JJI-Joist, the MVHR-friendly SHI/IHS JJI-Joist solution and our latest Fire & Preservative Treated JJI–Joists. What we hadn’t anticipated, and were delighted by, was the number of non-UK visitors the show delivered."
James Jones & Sons Ltd, Timber Systems Division are already established exporters to Continental Europe, in partnership with leading Belgian timber merchants VC Wood, and their ISO 14001 UK-manufactured, FSC certified JJI-Joist has been available for some time in Belgium, Northern France and Southern Holland.
Mark Tilston concluded: "We are now in follow-up discussions with several potential new customers, a number of whom are based in Continental Europe."
