Our history

FIS was formed in 2015 from the merger of the Association of Interior Specialists (AIS) and the Federation of Plastering and Drywall Contractors (FPDC). By coming together as one strong organisation, we are a powerful and unique voice for the sector. Our growing influence is based on the support we give to members, our ability to share knowledge for, and about the sector, our determination to drive high standards and to encourage a sense of pride in the quality of our members’ work.

Our future

FIS represents a growing sector, addressing key issues that affect our specialist members but also, more broadly, the construction industry and the UK economy. We aim to equip member companies to meet client needs more effectively, to make sure the sector has enough people with the right skills working to high technical standards, and to imbed a culture of quality and sustainable development. We focus on innovation because that creates a better tomorrow, but we are rigorous about health and safety because that affects the way we work on a daily basis.
