The BWF joins the Timber Trade Federation, the Structural Timber Association and the Builders Merchant Federation as major timber trade associations in the CTI network.

CTI chairman Peter Hindle MBE said the BWF’s participation strengthened the CTI network even further. "It will add a much-needed element to our supply chain representation, amplify our political voice and provide critical insights into key workstreams, particularly education and training," said Mr Hindle.
