We are pleased to announce that, effective August 1st, 2016 Category Cladding will change its name to Joris Ide Ltd. Our main sales office will remain in Gloucester with manufacturing facilities in Cardiff and Mainland Europe. Joris Ide Ltd combines the UK commercial activities of Category Cladding and Joris Ide into one.

The Joris Ide Group, with HQ in Belgium, was founded 30 years ago by Mr. Joris Ide and has evolved into one of the European market leaders in the manufacture and supply of insulated panels, profiles, structural elements and related accessories. The group combines different strengths which enables merchants, builders, contractors and owners to bring their projects, from small to big, to life through a personalised local approach and a complete product offering.
Although the name will now change – Joris Ide Ltd – you can still rely on the same personal working relationships that you have had in the past. You will still be dealing with the same people and can depend on the same high quality service.
We understand that this may represent a change in our company name, but we want to ensure you that our services will not be negatively affected in any way, but rather, will only grow stronger through the increased range of manufactured products.

Please note that our existing phone numbers will remain the same.

T +44 (0)1452 412 069
F +44 (0)1452 358 025

Also, please continue to address inquiries and business transactions to your current area sales manager and internal sales representative.

Our goal is to, more efficiently, continue delivering innovative, high-quality products in our current markets. To accomplish this, we will adhere to the established products manufactured from Cardiff while simultaneously exploring opportunities from the manufacturing facilities in Europe to provide you with additional value in new areas.

New manufactured products include:

  • Composite panels
    (PIR, PUR and Mineral Wool)

  • Structural decking & trays
  • Purlins

As well as our existing products:

  • Built-up systems (JI BR)
  • Flashings
  • Roof lights

We are committed to continue working hard to expand your business and want to thank you for your loyalty and support. We are confident that this name change and increased manufactured product range will position us to serve you even better.
