Large range of timber products for consumers


B&Q, part of the Kingfisher Group, is the largest DIY (do-it-yourself) retailer in the UK and the third largest in the world.

Over 15 years ago B&Q faced the growing need to source a wide range of timber and timber-based products. Key requirements were that these products be of consistent quality, and arrive precisely when and where customers needed them.


B&Q and Metsä Wood have a close partnership and the key to its success is joint planning; Metsä constantly receives point-of-sale information from B&Q with 12-month rolling forecast. In addition, we plan how to grow the business together.

Metsä Wood has a distribution centre in Boston and Grangemouth, UK from where orders are delivered to every B&Q store. With over 400 products in various categories, the need for delivery accuracy and efficiency is paramount. Single point delivery bar codes mean that store managers can instantly book in arriving products – saving significant time and money.


From sustainably managed Finnish forest – all the way to a B&Q retail store, Metsä delivers on its promises – end to end.

A well established, strategic partnership between B&Q and Metsä Wood consistently delivers solutions applicable not only for other wood product retailers worldwide, but for builder wholesalers as well.
