Lignia Wood Company, the award-winning modified timber specialist, has signed a distribution agreement with Italian timber experts, Bellotti Spa, who will be distributing Lignia and Lignia Yacht products to the Italian and Swiss markets.
The agreement was signed in Amsterdam at METSTRADE where both companies were exhibiting their product ranges. There were further celebrations at the show when Lignia won a major DAME Design Award for its Lignia Yacht wood deck product that is now being used on boats around the world instead of endangered teak.
Lignia produces modified timber at its base in Barry, Wales. It uses real softwood from responsibly sourced FSC® certified plantations which is then modified through a unique process.
“We are delighted to welcome Bellotti to our select list of distributor partners. Italy is very important to us in both construction and the yacht world, and Bellotti has many connections, especially with superyacht brands,” says Hans Ng, Lignia’s CEO. “They’re also very innovative and their technical capabilities are a great match for our ambitions.”
Bellotti was established in 1927 and is a leading manufacturer of specialist timber with strong connections to the Italian superyacht industry. The agreement signed is a non-exclusive distribution agreement to market and sell Lignia wood into the construction sector along with Lignia Yacht into the marine world.
