The company the largest and foremost distributor of surface materials in the UK; delivering a portfolio that includes worktops, laminates, solid surface, panel products, flooring and wall panelling.

The IDS product portfolio is a ‘Who’s Who’ of leading surface brands, priding itself on leading the way with the latest innovations available to the UK market. To further enhance its distribution prowess, IDS recently made a £1million+ investment in a purpose-built distribution centre in Thurrock as part of a strategic development plan to further strengthen its position in south east England.
