Brexit and what it means to your timber flooring supply

Posted in Business By Solidwood Company

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. Due to leave in October 2019, 2 years after the referendum, the UK government has failed to agree on any deal to secure Britain’s future which has prompted delays to the process. Depending on who you ask you’ll hear different narratives with many people convinced Brexit will have a negative impact on the UK’s economy.*


The Forestry Commission has outlined scenarios which could affect the wood flooring industry. Below are guides which have been supplied by the Forestry Commission explaining what could happen In the event of a No Deal Brexit.
