Ecodek: New Supply Agreement with Travis Perkins
Ecodek are proud to announce a new supply agreement with Travis Perkins as their preferred Composite Decking supplier for 2019. We have been busy manufacturing our ecodek® Heritage screw fixed, solid board composite decking for supply into the Travis Perkins Range Centres in readiness for the new Spring 2019 Landscaping Season.
ecodek® is now available throughout the Travis Perkins branch network, and we will be working with the key landscape branches in the coming weeks with marketing support, point of sale and show decks all planned.
Travis Perkins plc have been supplying the building & construction industry and home improvement markets for over 200 years. Travis Perkins operate more than 20 businesses across the UK and own 19 product brands within those businesses.
Jonathan Cooper, Managing Director said “Ecodek are delighted to be working with Travis Perkins as our principal national distributor; and are committed to working closely with the branch network and managers to forge a close and successful working partnership with Travis Perkins. The beauty of the ecodek® system is in its simplicity and ease of installation, along with a minimum number of components. This makes the product a perfect solution for Builder’s Merchants looking for a Made in Britain, quality product at a competitive price. We are now looking forward to the Spring weather being kind to us and encourage everyone to get into their gardens and start their Spring garden projects!”
ecodek® is a wood polymer composite decking system that is made from recycled materials. It is a sustainable, low maintenance alternative to timber and is used in a wide range of construction applications. We take pride in the fact that we make some of the highest quality products in the industry while our production processes have a very low impact on the environment.
ecodek® is a robust system manufactured in the UK. It is a wood polymer composite (WPC), which means that it is made from a blend of sustainably sourced hardwood flour and HDPE polymer. The material composition is approximately 55% PEFC™ certified hardwood fibres (Beech) and 45% high-density polyethylene recycled plastic milk bottles (HDPE).
The boards are also fully recyclable, and 100% of any material that is returned to us, or products that are rejected under our quality control system, are recycled back into production.
Here’s a re-cap of the benefits of ecodek® boards over traditional timber decking:
