SAM Mouldings has won a four-year £10m contract to provide Wickes with primed MDF mouldings, wood veneer mouldings, skirting boards and architraves. SCA will distribute the products.

SAM Mouldings’ managing director Richard Holmes said the new business represented "a great win for our team and will support our long-term strategy to grow the business through channels such as these”.

He continued: "The assistance we received from Invest NI, particularly with re-evaluating our sales strategy, was invaluable to us and it has played a major role in helping us to secure this contract. We're now positioned more competitively to identify and take advantage of future business opportunities across Great Britain and Europe."
