Balau

Red Grandis aboutIn 2017 we decided to add a hardwood to our product range to cater for the our customer who requirements took them outside of our standard product range.

We assessed the durability, sustainability and cost to our customers of several timber timbers over a period of about 12 months and decided that Red Grandis (please see Co2grandis.co.uk) would be a good choice, and this has become a popular timber. Over the last 6 months we have been looking to add another hardwood to our range.
