IDS has secured a deal with Finsa for the UK distribution of its SuperPanDecor range, the advanced panel substrate for furniture manufacturing that offers superior machining, finishing and cost saving benefits. The range will be available ex-stock from all 13 of IDS’s branches nationwide.

As part of the agreement, IDS has significantly increased the choice and availability of the SuperpanDecor range. Combining the wealth of experience of both Finsa and IDS, the two companies have put together a range that encompasses the needs of the UK furniture and shopfitting markets, reflecting commercial best sellers and latest design trends.  

The SuperPan range offers 40 decors comprising seven plain colours, 14 woodgrains, five fantasy designs, nine glossies and four in-line registered embossed woodgrains called Jazz.

Says David Huggins, business development director at IDS: “We believe that SuperpanDecor is the best in class range for furniture manufacturing and shopfitting. It’s a unique product that bridges the gap between chipboard and MDF – it basically cuts like MDF minimizing break-out but is priced like melamine faced chipboard and that gives customers enormous benefits. We will be providing extensive stockholding and a significant investment programme, plus we have a dynamic and highly experienced support team that will really drive the SuperPan brand forward.”

The key feature of SuperPan is that it is pressed as a single panel with integral layers of MDF fibres on the surface and a chipboard centre. The ex-stock panel, reflecting the majority of UK manufacturing needs, is 2750 x 2100 x 18mm. In addition to this standard size, panels can be made to order in a vast range of sizes, colours and thicknesses.

Says Rafael Willisch, managing director of Finsa UK: We chose IDS as our exclusive distribution partner because of their ability to take the product truly national, with stockholding that ensures a greater depth and breadth of choice than ever before. IDS also have the pedigree of working with leading brands and are respected as a major supplier to the furniture and shopfitting sectors. They have the expertise to supply to customers large and small, regional or national, and recognized the potential of the range.”

SuperPan is exclusively available from IDS with all products held ex-stock for 24-48 hour delivery from any of the company’s 13 regional branches.
