Trade Agreement

The UK and European Union have agreed a Brexit trade agreement, but even though there are no tariffs or duties there are import and export customs clearance fees now and in the future.

Brexit does not facilitate trade with the UK and hauliers say Cabinet Office ministers ignored warnings of the problems that have arisen. Despite the post-Brexit difficulties, we are open for business, continue to have a distribution relationship with our French manufacturers.

Faced with uncertainties of Brexit, our supplier is not refusing to manufacturer Inno-Therm® for the UK market, yet no longer will take on the logistics of shipping the insulation to UK. As a result, we are now having to arrange haulage from Ex-works in northern France to UK. We are gradually building a new haulage network to bring the product to the UK market. We will update our website accordingly and notify customers, with focus on orders that are being processed.

Covid 19

During the current Covid 19 restrictions, we are able to continue to handle enquiries by phone and email. We are able to dispatch goods as courier services are still operating, providing your premises can accept deliveries. You must contact us to discuss delivery lead time.

Recovery Insulation Ltd. and Le Relais LLC, two social enterprises, are supporting the Spoke recycling denim incentive scheme. Spoke customers are asked to send any unwanted denim to Spoke, and in exchange Spoke will recycle it responsibly and offer a £15 rebate on their latest pair of SPOKE denim.

The unwanted denim is processed – recycled into our energy saving low carbon insulation — for an environmental double whammy.
