Politicians visit builders merchants and manufacturers 

Most politicians have little or no grasp of how materials & products arrive at the end-user. To overcome this, we take them to visit merchants or manufacturers in their constituency to gain insight into a local business and the building materials’ supply chain.

The gallery shows a selection of visits successfully completed. More are in the pipeline, as diaries and the weather permit.   In the last 18 months, we were pleased to have welcomed Government Ministers and Opposition Party Spokesmen to some of our members’ branches, showrooms or factories, including:
