Rehau to invest in UK-based Decorative Panels Lamination

Rehau, a systems and solutions provider polymer-based solutions in the construction and furniture industries, has announced a collaboration with Decorative Panels Lamination, a manufacturer and distributor of decorative faced sheet materials, panel components and flat pack furniture.

The collaboration aims to address the surge in demand for home office set-up, following Rehau’s successful year in 2021 where they explored innovative and on-trend kitchen, bathroom and home office as well as advanced furniture solutions. It will also allow Rehau to grow its UK presence and facilitate the more efficient supply of materials across the country.

Rehau’s furniture division has adapted its business strategy to circumnavigate the fallout from Brexit and COVID-19 and ensure its UK customers continue to receive its high-quality edgeband, surface and tambour door solutions.

“We’re thrilled to be working alongside Decorative Panels Lamination who have long established themselves as leaders within the sector,” commented Scott Williams, national sales manager, Rehau. “Having been in the industry for over 100 years, manufacturing and distributing laminated sheet materials throughout the UK, the company is the ideal choice for Rehau’s furniture division. Decorative Panels Lamination will be holding large amounts of our stock, including our popular and award-winning Rauvisio noble matt range, meaning the supply will be readily available for UK-based manufacturers and fitters.”

He added: “Essentially, we aim to reduce lead times through this new partnership, ensuring we continue to meet demand following the challenging past few years for the industry. Already in place is our distributor Waivis, specialising in tambour doors and edgebanding, and while this remains sufficient for smaller bespoke orders, it is now necessary to adapt our approach to meet growing demand. With seamless kitchens on trend, our customers will now be able to find our all-in-one surface, edgeband and tambour ranges directly from one single source.”
