James Jones & Sons Timber Systems Division began exporting its JJI Joists to Dindas Australia Pty Ltd, a leading distributor of wood products, back in December of last year and last week the milestone of the millionth lineal metre of JJI-Joists was achieved.
Angus Macfarlane, General Manager of James Jones & Sons Timber Systems Division, said “Growing our international distribution network of our JJI-Joists is a big factor in our plans and our new partnership with Dindas Australia has facilitated this. James Jones & Sons and Dindas Australia share many synergies and we are excited to grow our plans in parallel with further production for increased demand in the UK and Europe.”
Chief Operating Officer of Dindas Australia, John Cannard, commented “For over 60 years, the Dindas name and brand, have been associated with leading the way in the engineered wood products sector in Australia. To continually achieve this, we must partner with manufacturing companies that share similar core values. When the opportunity came along to partner with James Jones and Sons, a clear leader in the engineered wood products in Scotland, and a 5-generation family-owned business, we were very sure that our values aligned. Now 10 months on, we have just received our 1 millionth LM of the James Jones I-Beam product and we couldn’t be more excited.
From the start, the James Jones team have been tremendous partners through this transition and together we have created a great new product inclusion to the already trusted Dindas Australia product portfolio.”
