NOTES: During the 1920s and 1930s, Venesta Ltd was one of the largest manufacturers and importers of plywood in Britain. The competition for Venesta's exhibition stand at the Manchester Building Trades Exhibition of 1931 attracted 175 entries and a fair amount of publicity. It formed a significant part in the Venesta marketing strategy in promoting plywood and finding new areas of usage for it and was eventually won by Wells Coates.
