The Association of Interior Specialists (AIS) and the Federation of Plastering & Drywall Contractors (FPDC) came together last year and have now chosen FIS as their new name.
However, FIS does not stand for Federation of Interior Specialists. It stands for Finishes & Interiors Sector.
Chief executive David Frise said: “FIS will truly represent the finishes and interiors sector’s contractors, manufacturers and distributors within its membership. We have an ambitious strategy to help our members meet the future needs of the industry and to make it a safe, attractive and profitable sector to work in.”
