I always think in situation like this best to contact the Lopez sales agent
David Hampshaw.
JDH Mouldings
Think the number is 01937 844 659
He will know who has bought that ref no.
And it might not be a Forumer
I have visited distributors and framers in 89 countries - no two are the same.

Not everybody buys Lopez mouldings via the UK sales agent. I was trained at a well known framers in South Devon who used to buy directly from Lopez in Spain. They used to buy quite large amounts and got a better price by doing so. The smaller framers have to buy via the UK sales agent, but bigger organisations and distributors probably go direct.

BTW, just a wild thought, Venton Enterprises used to stock Lopez moldings. Somebody probably bought Venton's stock, perhaps there might be some left, if you can track down where it went. Just a thought!

Talk about an amazing coinsidence. I mention Venton Enterprises on this thread yesterday, stop in Honiton this morning on my way to somewhere else and a voice says "hello mark" and it's Sean Berry from Venton Enterprises.

Well, he no longer has any framing stock left as it went long ago, so no Lopez mouldings, but he was looking well, even though he has be through a serious illness a few years early.

It was really great to see him after so long and I thought that I would just say for the many in the south west that have known him that he's not only still around, but looking good too.
