50 Years of Tanalith at Balcas
BALCAS is one of the leading sawmills in the UK supplying quality timber products to a wide range of markets. First established in 1962 BALCAS has always used TANALITH wood preservative within its production facilities to help ensure a high performance, long life for its timber products and recently Lonza Wood Protection presented a 50 year commemorative plaque to Andrew Kidney and the timber treatment team of BALCAS to celebrate this impressive long term partnership.
Andrew Kidney commented, ‘We have used TANALITH preservative in many forms over the 50 years but it has always been a proven and reliable product that we could have real confidence in, not only for ourselves but also for our customers. The use of TANALITH at BALCAS is now backed up with 100 years of real experience through our committed and professional treatment team of Robbie Johnson (45 years), Ian McCabe (25 years) and Alan Stevenson (30 years).’
Paul Harvey, Lonza sales manager for Ireland, commented, ’50 years is an incredibly long time for any business partnership and we are delighted to celebrate a half century of TANALITH preservative supply to BALCAS. The next generation TANALITH E product with its unique BARamine technology is now being used by BALCAS and will provide them with a robust and reliable long term protection for their future timber products.’
