Helping Scotts break the boundaries

Gypsum fibre dry lining boards from fermacell helped a specialist timber frame manufacturer make a promising start in a new sector.

Scotts of Thrapston have 95 years’ expertise in the equestrian and garden buildings sector but recently decided to try and break into the education sector by supplying modular classroom buildings. They specified 153 of fermacell’s boards for their first such project, Weldon Church of England Primary School. Business development manager Philip Goldstone said fermacell was specified by them for multiple reasons. “But probably most impressive is their racking ability. Their holding strength is such that we don’t have to do any reinforcing.”
