The October issue of BMJ will be on your desks at the beginning of next week (postal strike allowing!) and is packed with industry news, features and comment about the topics that most affect your business.
This month’s two Merchant Focus features concentrate on companies who are looking at sustainable solutions and products. Jewson want to see the industry commit to certified timber but are concerned that a lack of communication about it benefits are holding that back. James Hargreaves meanwhile, have expanded into the supply of solar panels. However, their approach is different to many. Read more in BMJ.
We also take a look at the complications faced by merchants in complying with the WEEE regulations in our regular Information Technology slot. A Timber Trading feature provides an insight into the timber frame and fencing markets, with what to expect from them in 2008. And this month the spotlight is on showers and how the demands of the end user are changing in our monthly in depth look at a specific sector of the market.
Extras this month include a GLEE review showcasing some of the new lines on display at the NEC in September. Plus we help merchants to make the most of Interbuild, with a round up of the key show facts and must-see products that will be on stand at the end of this month.
And finally, for all of you who took part in the BMJ Golf Classic this year we have three pages of coverage from the final in Le Touquet last month, including shots of the players on (and off) the course and the winning teams.
Plus the latest product launches, news and, of course, the BMJ crossword. And remember, if there’s anything you think we’ve missed, something you’d like to see more of or a feature that’s particularly helpful to you, please let us know through the website contact page.
