A UK supplier of products for the construction industry seeks a supplier of untreated, FSC certified wooden products


A British company that supplies a range of products to the construction sector is seeking to source wooden profile boards and wooden marking out stakes, manufactured from FSC certified untreated softwood, for a manufacturing agreement.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

A manufacturer or supplier who can supply FSC certified softwood products for a manufacturing agreement.

Partner sought

A manufacturer of wooden products who can supply the items in untreated, FSC certified softwood who can arrange delivery to the company's UK premises with any appropriate documentation and in the quantities requested.


Incorporated in 2004, the company based in Yorkshire (UK) has a robust market supplying construction consumables, lightweight shelving systems and trailer spares through well established builders' merchants throughout the United Kingdom. The company currently sources softwood, FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) wooden profile boards and marking out stakes used on construction sites from an intermediary. Now, due to a strong growth in orders, the company seeks to source the products directly from a manufacturer. The wooden profile boards are square cut, required in two sizes: 75mm x 14mm x 900mm in length 75mm x 14mm x 1200mm in length These would be delivered loose, 900 to a standard 1200mm x 1000mm wooden pallet. The current annual requirement is 80,000 per year across the two sizes. The wooden marking out stakes are terminated with a four way point and are required in six sizes: 40mm x 40mm x 300mm 40mm x 40mm x 500mm 40mm x 40mm x 600mm 40mm x 40mm x 900mm 40mm x 40mm x 1200mm 40mm x 40mm x 1500mm The stakes should be banded in bundles of 25 and packed onto a standard 1200mm x 1000mm pallet. The current requirement is for 450,000 per year over the six lengths. The company would order a full truck load of mixed product at a time and would ideally want to operate on a one month lead time. However, there is some flexibility on this to reflect preferential pricing. Consideration would be given to offering the manufacturer a 12 month, call off order if the manufacturer would be prepared to carry a buffer stock for speedier deliveries. The company is offering a manufacturing agreement to a partner who either produces the items from raw material or as a re-working of off-cuts from another wooden product manufacturing process.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
