What is the CTI?
The CTI is the primary UK trade organisation promoting the role of the timber supply chain in the economy. The organisation represents businesses across the entire supply chain including manufacturers, producers and distributors in matters relating to employment, skills, quality control, environmental issues and economic growth.
Roy Wakeman, Chairman of the CTI explained more about the appointment: “Timber is clearly the prime building material for sustainable construction. The CTI is committed to keeping timber in the forefront of growing our low carbon economy and utilising this fantastic material to help reverse the housing crisis in the UK.”
