Sources of Plywood

Postby Robin Birch » Tue Oct 09, 2018 6:03 pm

Hi,
Are there any U.K. sources of plywood - other than SATCO. They are out of stock of what I need and possibly won’t have stock for some time.

Cheers

Robin

Try TLAC who supply ply certified to a standard acceptable to the LAA, also Lathams in Bristol may be able to help.

GL1 is pretty hard to find now.


Regards,

Hi Colin,
Thanks for that. I'll get on to the contacts that you suggest. Yes GL1 is a pain as there isn't anyone who imports it and getting an answer out of the French or German places I've tried is torturous.

Kind regards

Robin
