Hi All,

its been a while since I visited the site and put any posting on under my old profile of "USG".

There has been lots of change in the past 18 months since we were purchased by Knauf.

During this period I have spent alot of my time integrating the Sheetrock business into Knauf and reviewing the product offering that we both had.

Our ultimate aim is to create products that are fit for purpose, cost effective and ultimately become the end users preffered choice.

Personnally I have been involved in T&J products for the past 12 years, either in contracting itself or working for USG Sheetrock selling products, and therefore I am fully aware of what some of you think about some of our products.

This is where I need your help !

Would any of you be interested in completing a survey which can be emailed to you which covers taping products in general - what your preferences are and why - and what we as a manufacturer can do to improve our products -.

This is the first step I need to take inorder to gain a national overview on materials.

The second step is to look at organising some site trials with some new formula products (Fillers / Joint Cement / Ready Mix Jointing / Tapes / Beads)

I think I know what we need to do ... I would just like you all to tell me.

If you can help please either call me on 07767118988 or email me directly on manderson@knauf.co.uk (manderson@knauf.co.uk) and I will send out the questionnaire.

Hopefully hear from you soon ....

Regards

Michael

Well michael best of luck but its a shame that the knaff tag is now associated with you. Hopefully they will just rebrand your gear but that name on any bag makes me run a mile.

Forestbhoy ... changing the product name is something we might look into but the important thing for me is not what it is called, it is how good it is inside the bag or bucket - thats the first thing we need to look at. If we get the product right hopefully good news travels as quickly as bad news !!!!!

Would you fill in a survey for me to help the project ?

Cheers

Michael

Thanks to all who have got in touch so far .... this post has had 144 viewings but only 6 guys willing to fill in a survey.

Help me, help you, by telling me what you want from a manufacturer - all I want is some honest detailed feedback

Cheers

What's happened to your spray plasters? Have they just been discontinued. Also your Tuff hide has been renamed to airless surfacer primer but what happened to rediwall?
