SHELTON, Connecticut, May 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Panolam Industries' "Nevamar(R) by Panolam" brand is now available from two distributors in the United Kingdom. The two new distributors, Arnold Laver Timber World and B.G.N. Boards Co., will further extend the brand's reach in Europe, which the company entered in 2010. Continued penetration of the European design and construction market is a key element in Shelton, Connecticut (U.S.A.)-based Panolam's overall growth strategy.
"Our partnerships with these two well-established and reliable distributors are further evidence of our belief in and commitment to the European market," said Robert Muller, Panolam Industries' Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We plan to become a significant resource for customers throughout Europe, and these two quality distributors will support that objective."
Arnold Laver Timber World (www.timberworld.co.uk), headquartered in Sheffield, has 15 locations, from North East to Reading. B.G.N. Boards (www.bgn.co.uk) is based in West Bromwich in the West Midlands, and provides one of the most extensive assortments of laminates and other sheet material in the Midlands region.
Both distributors share Panolam's commitment to customer service, innovation and respect for the environment.
