Mermaid Invests

Mermaid Panels, the leading brand of waterproof wall panel systems in the UK, has invested £1.5 million in state-of-the-art production line technology as it rolls out its innovative new range of laminate panels.

Simon Howie, chairman of Mermaid Panels, said: “This significant capital investment in our production line will not only consolidate our position at the forefront of leading-edge waterproof wall panel manufacture, but also build on our reputation for quality and innovation.”

Mermaid Panels’ new range of panels introduce the next generation of products into the UK waterproof wall panel market. The development of its latest range follows market research revealing rising demand for wall panel systems across Europe as customers’ age profiles fall and they become more willing to experiment with alternative materials and more vibrant colours.

An attractive alternative to ceramic tiles –with no grouting required and saving on labour costs – wall panel systems provide a distinctive look and feel for bathrooms and showers.

Mermaid Panels produces stylish, practical and robust wall coverings with a 10-year watertight guarantee. Unlike other wall panel manufacturers, Mermaid supplies full installation kits to make the product as easy to use as possible. Mermaid Panels offers market-leading 48 hour delivery to 1500 retail customers throughout the UK.
