Claire Digby nominated and shortlisted for Builders’ Merchant Awards 2019 and a new product launched!

Following our blog post in August advising that Digby Stone are sponsoring the Hard Landscaping Display of the Year category at the Builders’ Merchants Awards 2019, we are delighted to announce that we have a member of staff in the running for an award here at Digby Stone.

None other than our very own Managing Director Claire Digby has been nominated, and now shortlisted, for the ‘Woman in Merchanting’ Award 2019. The category celebrates those within the industry who have forged ahead to increase the level of women working within the sector, and who highlight merchanting as a worthy career choice for women. As a successful woman in a male dominated business, demonstrating why merchanting is a career that more women should consider and actively recruiting to this end, the subject is a matter close to Claire’s heart.

We would like to take this opportunity as a company to congratulate Claire and wish her the best of luck, and we look forward to seeing the rest of the finalists and presenting the award for our sponsored category at the Awards on the 22nd November at the London Hilton on Park Lane.


Speaking of exciting news, at Digby Stone HQ we recently received our first delivery of our brand new Universal Slurry Primer Pro!

A polymer modified, cementitious based slurry bond coat, our primer can be used for bonding most types of stone slabs, concrete flags, clay pavers, and of course porcelain tiles. Our primer has instructions for use printed onto the bags, making it easy for contractors and the least experienced DIY-er to use with confidence.

Digby Stone Universal Slurry Primer Pro

Simply mix with water to create a smooth creamy consistency and apply to the reverse of the slabs when laying to help the slabs bond to the bed of mortar, and create a waterproof barrier between the moisture in the ground and the slab itself.

We’re excited to share our newest innovative product with our merchant customers and their contractors, and we have had some fantastic feedback from landscapers who trialled the product for us, so why not try the Universal Slurry Primer with your next order of Digby Stone slabs or tiles?

If you are a merchant customer of ours, be sure to get in touch with the office on 0121 585 7477 to take advantage of the new product offer NOW! Keep your eyes peeled for demo videos, how to’s and testimonials in the coming months!
