What our clients are saying

I was a 'marine ply' specifier! I am now reformed.
Lots of info & really useful rather than just a sales pitch, answered all questions.
I'll be giving much more thought to what I am specifying instead of just generic plywood.
Jacqui presented really well and one of the most informative in a long time .
Very well presented, concise and clear and tailored to architect specifying which was great. Enjoyed the background and how it is made highlighting the difference between good plywood and poor plywood, was really useful as well.
Excellent and informative presentation, Thank you.
Fantastic CPD, the delivery was excellent and engaging. Wouldn't change anything and would highly recommend.
