Slow Boat From China? Not Likely!
In a significant move to feed strong growth in sales of hardwood plywood and further build upon the success of their market leading brands , Sainty and Greentree, Premier Forest Products have significantly increased their capacity by switching to bulk cargo shipment of plywood directly from China to Newport Docks.

Terry Edgell, Purchasing Director, explains; "The demand for our product is continuing to grow across the country and in order to fuel that success, we’ve decided to commission regular bulk cargo shipments, giving us the economies of scale and efficiency that ensure Premier remains competitive force with a market leading product."

Each successive shipment has grown in size as sales continue to grow rapidly. "The fact that we are having to not only substantially increase each contract, but increase the frequency of the shipments too, is all indicative of the growth in business that Premier is continuing to enjoy in this market." said Mr.Edgell. "We offer an entire suite of chinese plywood products from these shipments, ranging from budget merchant panels like Sainty Board to class-leading FSC® certified structural Sainty Q-Mark plywood, and purchasing on this scale ensures our customers get the products and prices they need. The biggest challenge has been keeping up with demand!"

Premier's latest vessel arrives at Newport Dock at the start of August.
