We’re making some changes

Following the coming together of roofing industry leaders Monier Redland Limited and Icopal Limited, under the BMI umbrella brand for pitched and flat roofing systems manufactured in the United Kingdom; we are taking steps to evolve our business.


We’re making some changes to the way our legal entities are structured in order to simplify how we transact with our suppliers and customers. The purpose of this communication is to provide our suppliers with information related to these changes.


We will work with you to ensure a smooth transition as we restructure certain aspects of our procurement, invoicing, and payments. We will continue to operate as per our normal course of business with you until the changes are made effective at the end of the first quarter this year.


This page will host all communications that we send out to you and we will continue to add and update the FAQs, resources and updates sections on this page, so that you always have access to the most current information.

  • Why is the legal entity structure being changed? 

    We are making some changes to the way our legal entities are structured in order to simplify how we transact with our suppliers and customers.

  • When will the changes be implemented?
    The changes will be made effective at the end of this quarter.
  • Will existing Purchase Orders be impacted?
    Please follow the instructions and submit your invoices to the appropriate entity and address, as stated on the purchase order.

    All existing POs should be processed and invoiced following our original instruction on the purchase order.

    We ask that you make the required updates needed in April 2021, including new legal names in your accounting and invoicing systems to ensure our ability to process and pay invoices without interruption.
  • What happens if I don’t have an official purchase order?
    Every invoice that you provide us with must include the valid purchase order number as supplied by us.
  • What happens if the entity details are incorrect on my invoice?
    Invoices without the correct entity as confirmed on the purchase order will be rejected and payment may be delayed.
  • Will there be any changes to our daily interactions with our BMI/Monier Redland/ Icopal contacts? 
    Engagements and interactions with your BMI contacts will not change. 
  • Do I need to take any action? 
    Yes. Although we will continue to operate as per our normal course of business with you until the changes are made effective at the end of the first quarter this year; please follow the instructions and submit your invoices to the appropriate entity and address, as stated on the purchase order. 
  • I need BMI to complete a new credit account application; where should I send this?
  • We currently have a supply contract in place with Monier Redland / Icopal. Will this contract continue to be effective even with these changes taking place?
    Supply under the existing contract will continue although the contract will be novated to the new legal entity in line with when the changes take place. We will provide further communication in the subsequent letters.
