More than 60 businesses from the Hertfordshire area joined Minster Royston and some of the industry’s leading suppliers at an open day for local customers. The day was an opportunity to view product showcases and gain practical insight on innovative product application methods. Customers were left in good spirits after being invited to tuck in to a sumptuous hog roast between product training sessions.

Since its move from Cambridge to Royston a year ago, Minster has seen its customer base grow rapidly. With the support of British Gypsum, Kingspan and Saint-Gobain Weber, Minster was able to facilitate hands-on training for a range of applications including render systems, ceilings, flat roof insulation and tapered systems.

James Hanson of Hanson Homes said: “The event held by Minster Royston was definitely worthwhile. Having manufacturers like BG, Kingspan and Weber right at our doorstep meant that we gained credible insight. Aside from the live demos, we got to network with other local businesses, which is always beneficial.”
