    FPDC and AIS to commence merger talks

    16th January 2013

    The Federation of Plastering and Drywall Contractors (FPDC) and the Association of Interior Specialists (AIS) and have begun formal discussions with a view to merging to form a new organisation.

    Whilst talks are at an early stage, both organisations are looking to combine their strengths to demonstrate leadership across the specialist finishing sector and provide greater value for members.

    As current market conditions are very challenging, FPDC’s executive directors believe that considering the possibility of a merger between AIS and FPDC is a prudent and potentially beneficial move to consider.

    Angela Mansell, president of FPDC, said: "There is no better time to look at the possibility of a merger between AIS and FPDC.  With both organisations having similar interests, a merger would bring together the best of the two companies to create a more robust organisation, better positioned to tackle industry issues going forward."

    AIS president Jonathan Cherry said: "Both AIS and FPDC recognise that in order to truly represent the interests of our industry and those of our members we need to have a united voice.  A merger would create more representative and effective organisation, with greater influence to address the key issues that our sector faces."
