Every two years Samse, a French distributor of construction materials, organizes a get-together exhibition for its top tier suppliers and main customers: buildings companies, carpenters, joiners, …. This year the event is held near the French Alps, in Chambéry. During the second week of February, there are more than 300 suppliers presented including wood materials, parquets, cladding, insulation, tiles and decking materials, among others.
For more than 15 years, UPM ProFi has had a co-operation with a French distributor Samse which sales are valued at 2 Billion euros annually. This means the partnership has stayed strong for the whole lifetime of UPM ProFi, one of the leading composite decking brands in Europe.
- We at Samse are a product laboratory for UPM. We test all your innovative ideas and new products. We have a great confidence towards UPM and its products, says Thierry Pichot, director at Socobois, a branch specialized in wood and panels.
- Our job is to test and propose new products for the market. We only do that if our supplier is a reliable partner. UPM is a very strong and solid supplier, and we are pleased to have such a company with us, continues Thierry Pichot.
