Growth for Nottinghamshire housing materials supplier

A Nottinghamshire supplier to the UK housebuilding industry is reporting a 12 per cent growth in sales of materials used in the construction of roofs for new houses in the first half of 2018.

Sutton-in-Ashfield-based SR Timber is seeing strong year-on-year sales of its flagship product Premium Gold roofing batten which is installed across roof trusses so that tiles can be fixed to a roof.

Trading Director Shaun Revill was delighted with such robust growth, particularly in the current climate, and pointed to the factors including the quality of the batten, the availability of stock, service and back up of technical expertise for the sales growth.

“We keep surpassing our own expectations for sales,” said Shaun. “In 2017, we were up by more than 30 per cent on the year before, and we thought it would be a tall order to beat in 2018. But at the halfway point this year, having double-digit sales growth is a real credit to the SR Timber team.

“Two of the biggest reasons behind the continued growth are the robustness and reliability of our supply chain infrastructure, meaning that we always have a constant flow of materials from the sawmills in Latvia, in transit to the UK and in stock at sites around the UK, so that we can typically process and deliver orders within 48 hours.

“Sales are also up on other SR Timber products, including cedar shingles used on roofs and laminated panel products that are used in the construction of kitchen cupboards and worksurfaces.

“The house building industry continues to respond favourably to suppliers that produce quality products and we’re delighted that roofing materials supplied by a company from Huthwaite are being used on thousands of homes that are springing up all across the UK.”
