Easier Access to Plaswood Solutions with MKM Partnership

To meet increasing demand for its extensive range of plastic lumber products, Plaswood, a Berry Global product, is now being made available via the UK’s largest independent builders’ merchant, MKM Building Supplies.

Plaswood products will be available to purchase online, with items also on display in selected showrooms, and Plaswood lumber available at timber specialist stores, at MKM’s nationwide branches.

The partnership between Plaswood and MKM will make Plaswood products more easily accessible to both consumers and tradespeople throughout local communities, meeting the need for a durable, long lasting and maintenance-free solution for a wide variety of domestic and commercial outdoor applications including garden furniture, fencing, signage, decking, bins, planters and edging.

The availability of these products at MKM will also support the company’s commitment to providing second life products to its customers that help to divert waste from landfill and support the development of a circular economy.

“This is an important deal for Plaswood and another significant milestone in the growth of the brand,” commented Plaswood’s General Manager Katherine Lorek-Wallace. “We are experiencing strong demand for our products and the ability to purchase through MKM will deliver a fast route to market.”

Plaswood is made from recycled plastic. Its robust waterproof properties mean that the material will not rot, splinter or deteriorate over time, providing a long-term quality alternative to traditional materials. During the current pandemic, its hygienic easy to clean qualities have been of particular benefit as surfaces can be wiped with antibacterial products without causing any damage or wear to the surface.

“Plaswood is an important addition to our offering,” said Kate Tinsley, MKM Building Supplies’ CEO. “Sustainability is a major concern to our customers and through Plaswood we are able to offer practical and high-quality products for many types of outdoor applications, including garden furniture or landscaping items, that are helping to keep used plastics away from our environment, while turning waste into valuable second life solutions.”
