Formally launching on 01 July, the new partnership will service the entire UK and Irish market, with supply from Glenalmond’s new finishing facility combined with direct shipments from New Zealand.
"We are excited to launch Abodo's architectural timber offering through Glenalmond Timber. Specifiers and self-builders alike now have the option to choose engineered high performance rapidly renewable, ultra sustainable certified timbers."
"The UK and Ireland have traditionally relied old growth clear softwoods like Canadian WR Cedar - our mission is to offer the market a truly sustainable alternative. In our partner, Glenalmond, we have found a highly skilled, like minded company ready to spread the message" says Daniel Gudsell, Abodo Founder and Director.
Third generation family owned Glenalmond Timber is gearing up for the launch.
“It was clear to me from the outset that this product had the potential to be disruptor within the timber cladding market. Every box was ticked from sustainability, carbon sequestration, durability class 1 and from price points to aesthetics. With super stable solutions covering all climates from exterior through interior and from small profiles to massive vertical grained laminated beams the options to specifiers are virtually limitless."
"We will be installing our coating line and additional texturing facilities during July which will knit well with our current Abodo coated options and our Abodo specific Euroclass B high pressure FRX with combined coating data. We are delighted to represent such a focused and innovative partner as Adodo here. They really do tick all the boxes!” states Fraser Steele, Glenalmond Managing Director.
