A HIGHBRIDGE roofing manufacturer has been reinforcing its supply chain to ensure Brexit will not impact its ability to meet customer demand.

Briarwood Products, the UK’s largest suppliers of EUROSIX Fibre Cement Roofing has developed a Brexit strategy so they can continue to provide a dependable service to its customers regardless of the outcome of the Brexit negotiations.

The roofing manufacturer, which was established 40 years ago by Somerset farmer, Alan Janes, has invested heavily in its fleet of lorries and specialist delivery vehicles to ensure they have full control over the supply chain from factory to farmer.

Alan Janes, founder of Briarwood Products, said: “It’s key to the running of the business that our ability to supply stock will remain unchanged despite the challenges presented by Brexit.”

Established more than 40 years ago Briarwood has grown to become a nationwide supplier to farmers and steel frame manufacturers.

The company has built a reputation for holding the largest stock of fibre cement roofing and accessories at its 21-acre site off the M5.

The firm manages their dedicated European production line to ensure that fibre cement sheets and accessories are manufactured to satisfy the market requirements and has also expanded its customer service team to manage customer’s queries and also to guarantee that orders can be processed as efficiently as possible.

Oliver Janes, director of Briarwood Products, said: “Despite the unpredictability of the outcome of Brexit, we feel it is of paramount importance to our business that we can continue to supply our customers in the way we always have done.

"Our carefully planned Brexit strategy means we will be able to maintain our reputation to deliver stock to our customers when they need it.”
