AIS FPDC, which was created from the merger of the Association of Interior Specialists and the Federation of Plastering and Drywall Contractors, has unveiled a new look to become FIS.

FIS new logo 150410The new FIS brand reflects the organisation’s aim to create one strong voice for the finishes and interiors sector, addressing key issues that affect its members but also, more broadly, the construction industry and the UK economy.

FIS president Steve Coley said: “The coming together of AIS and FPDC has created a powerful and unique voice for our sector. Our aim is to equip members to meet client needs more effectively, to make sure the sector has enough people with the right skills working to high technical standards, and to embed a culture of quality and sustainable development.”

The organisation’s chief executive David Frise added: “FIS will truly represent the finishes and interiors sector’s contractors, manufacturers and distributors within its membership. We have an ambitious strategy to help our members meet the future needs of the industry and to make it a safe, attractive and profitable sector to work in.”
