Brexit and what it means to your timber flooring supply
With the unforeseeable future of Brexit still looming over the shoulders of the UK & the EU the question “What does Brexit mean?” has dominated the news on an international scale. Apart from the obvious combination of Britain and exit no one really knows what will happen once the UK’s final days as an EU country come to an end.
