CTI and Nexus CIFS establish strategic partnership to raise Timber Industry profile

The Confederation of Timber Industries is delighted to announce that Nexus CIFS will be a premium sponsor at its inaugural conference in Autumn 2016.

Well known for its credit insurance offering in the timber industry and one of the UK’s leading underwriting agencies, Nexus CIFS becomes the first sponsor of this major industry event.

At the conference the CTI will be presenting its reports on growing the use of sustainable timber and addressing skills shortages in the timber supply chain. The Confederation will host a debate about its policy recommendations with around 200 decision makers and opinion formers from the industry and Westminster.

The partnership will support the launch of new credit tools as well as a range of initiatives aimed at extending the reach and operational attractions of credit insurance. In particular Nexus CIFS will be promoting ‘First Select’, an innovative marketing tool created to help clients identify credit checked sales leads easily.

Further announcements will be made regarding the partnership in the coming weeks.

Dirk Vennix, CTI Chief Executive said: “This strategic partnership represents a major step forward for the Confederation. Thanks to Nexus CIFS support, we will raise the profile of the UK Timber Industry promoting the use of timber through inaugural conference and its post-event report. I hope Nexus’s example will be followed by many other sponsors since the CTI is a self-funding umbrella organisation. If you would also like to promote your company’s brand and products at the conference or fund the CTI in some other way please get in touch.”

Richard Marriage Nexus CIFS’ Managing Director said: “Having been a supporter of the timber industry for some years, Nexus CIFS is delighted to be the first sponsor of this major event organised by the Confederation.”
