Decking manufacturer Composite Prime has been awarded membership of the Timber Trade Federation (TTF). The company states that this is the first time a manufacturer of composite materials has become a member of the trade body.

Formed in 2014, Leeds-based Composite Prime is now one of the largest suppliers of composite decking products in the UK.

Decking materials produced by the company are manufactured using a mix of Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) 100% certified hardwood timber and recycled plastic waste. The result is a low-maintenance, slip-resistant and child-friendly material.

The products are marketed under the brand names HD Deck Dual and HD Deck XS. Composite Prime has distribution partnership agreements with a series of leading suppliers of decking materials across the UK.

During the last 12 months, Composite Prime estimates it has recycled 25 million plastic milk bottles and the equivalent of 300 million plastic bottle caps.

David Hopkins, managing director of the TTF, said: “We’re pleased to welcome Composite Prime onboard. They have already made great in-roads to the market via a number of our members and look set to continue that growth.”
