Nine employees from Shropshire builder’s merchant Tudor Griffiths Group have travelled to Sweden to learn more about the products they sell. They visited a hi-tech sawmill that processes wood from the Europe, Middle East and North Africa markets, with the trip to the Arbor Forest Products site in Braviken set up to give an insight into how the products they sell are produced.
Kevin Gardner, Builders’ Merchants General Manager for Tudor Griffiths Group, said: “The trip has given us all a great opportunity to learn more about the timber supply chain and the processes involved. We were particularly impressed with the commitment shown by the forestry team to both quality and sustainability, and their clear focus on environmental issues, including preserving forests for future generations.”
Tudor Griffiths Group employs more than 250 people working across the English/Welsh border in Shropshire, Cheshire, Worcestershire and mid and north Wales. As well as seven builders’ merchants branches, they also operate 12 ready mixed concrete plants, two sand and gravel quarries, a sea-dredged sand operation, recycling services and skip hire.
