A Vale of Glamorgan-based wood products manufacturer has secured a distribution contract that covers Europe and South East Asia.
Lignia, which operates from Barry, has secured the contract with Danish-based Global Timber.
Global Timber has one of the largest warehouses in northern Europe for hardwoods, with stock purchased on six continents.
The agreement covers an initial five-year period. Lignia Yacht will be sold across Europe on a joint exclusive basis and Lignia and Lignia Fire (the latter when it becomes available later this year) across the Nordic countries exclusively.
In addition to its European sales, it also has a significant presence in South East Asia, with Global Timber to sell Lignia and Lignia Fire in the region via its offices in Malaysia.
Lignia’s commercial director Steve Rogers said: “We’re already working with leading distributors in the UK and North America and I’m delighted to say that Global Timber will be a very important element in our development now across Europe and Asia.
“Thanks to Global Timber, Lignia is now available from their Danish and German depots anywhere in Europe within 48 to 72 hours.”
Global Timber’s chief executive, Peter Baek, said: “Expanding our product line-up to include Lignia reinforces our goal of providing our customers with the most innovative products on the market.
“We look forward to introducing the Lignia products to our clients, and together, develop the market for modified timber products.”
