This Stoke-on-Trent firm supplies more than 7,000 wood-panel products through its Meyer, Panelco and Premium brands, offering next-day delivery from eight depots. Last year, chief executive Chris Rudd, 44, oversaw the acquisition of Timbmet, a supplier and processor of hardwood products, for an undisclosed sum. Sales hit £231.6m in 2017, helped by competitive pricing and the addition of new products.
