Merchants to reap benefits from SCA partnership with SAM mouldings
Published:  12 January, 2010

STOKE-ON-TRENT: A new partnership between SAM Mouldings, market leader in MDF mouldings and SCA Timber Supply now allows a core range of SAM products to be made available through SCA‟s UK-wide timber product distribution network.

SCA‟s ability to tailor delivery quantities to merchant needs will make SAM Mouldings‟ products available to merchants with more limited capacity for bulk-buy storage. Merchants can save on administration and handling costs, and also save CO2, by ordering SAM Mouldings alongside SCA's wide range of wood products.

“The market dynamic has changed in the last 18 months,” says Gerard Wilson, sales and marketing manager at SAM Mouldings. “Merchants now need the flexibility of an alternative to bulk buying of quality MDF mouldings. SCA can service those needs. SCA and SAM Mouldings share a common business ethos on customer service, and have already worked together for some time in the DIY sector. This new partnership is ideal for driving forward sales and product development and giving the customer what they really need – consistent quality products delivered on time.”

John Buffel, senior account manager at SCA Timber Supply, comments: “We are continually developing our 'one stop shop' timber product service for merchants. SCA is offering a choice of full packs or split packs of SAM Mouldings from our Stoke-on-Trent and Welshpool distribution centres. SAM‟s FSC-certified primed MDF mouldings complement our range of Swedish FSC-certified solid wood mouldings. SAM and SCA share the same environmental values and it makes sense to combine deliveries and reduce CO2 emissions.”
