Dartmoor makes a welcome return to the UK market

James Latham, the country’s leading importer and distributor of timber and wood based panel products, has reintroduced Dartmoor veneered boards to the UK market after an absence of almost seven years.

A previously well-known and highly respected real wood veneer brand, Dartmoor was always associated with delivering a high quality, consistent product that made it suitable for many applications.  

Steve Frommont, Lathams’ product champion for veneered boards commented, “For many years, customers from a wide range of industries – shop fitting to furniture production – would specify “Dartmoor” veneered boards for their high quality and excellent consistency. The product disappeared from the market when production ceased at the Norbord factory at South Molton in Devon a few years ago, but we are delighted to have brought it back and already it’s been incredibly well received by our customers.” 

Lathams are currently in the process of registering the ‘Dartmoor’ brand name as a trademark which demonstrates the long term commitment and support it plans to put behind the brand moving forward.  This is expected to be granted in May this year.

Dartmoor Caberwood MDF isnow produced exclusively for James Latham, to its own veneer-grading specification and is available from all nine of James Latham’s panel products’ sites.  Dartmoor branded product is available in a wide range of species, thicknesses and sheet sizes.
