Confederation of the Timber Industries’ board approves application to join from Wood Protection Association
The Confederation of the Timber Industries’ (CTI) board has approved an application to join from the Wood Protection Association (WPA).
“This is another critical step in ensuring that the timber supply chain effectively unites to provide a common voice and a platform to support collaboration,” said Roy Wakeman OBE, chairman of the CTI.
“As we look forward to developing our industrial strategy we need to be mindful of every stage in our process, improving productivity and innovating our products to ensure they maintain the highest possible performance, health and sustainability credentials. It is great to have the WPA with all the expertise they bring in timber treatment and protection to this forum”.
The paperwork was signed on the CTI stand at Timber during UK Construction Week.
Steve Young, director of the Wood Protection Association, said: “We have been watching the CTI going from strength to strength and feel like now is the time to get involved.
“We have an exciting new programme of work focusing on supply chain education and materials health matters, much of it inspired by our already close working relationship with colleagues from the TTF and BWF, it seems a natural fit now to progress this and support the wider work through the CTI.”
