Why do you deserve the title?
Elite Timber Supplies are always striving to support other businesses and charities within the community. One example of this is the Captain Tom Moore Foundation, who we’ve supplied a variety of different timber related items to for their new building project.
We worked to find the best possible solution for the foundation’s objective, by looking at various options from timber frames to traditional builds. With much thought, we decided a traditional build option would be best. For this, we liaised and worked with a local truss manufacturer to supply the roof structure and a local building company to organise the fitting of the trusses, helping to make the task possible.
The next stage was to develop an internal element that focused on first fix, to include studwork along with plasterboard, that has now brought the project to the second fix stage.
The last item that we will source and supply, is the exterior cladding for the building which is a brown softwood rebated featheredge boarding.
It’s been a pleasure to support the Captain Tom Moore Foundation and a fantastic project for us to be a part of! Along the way, we’ve got to know the family, reasons behind the charity work, and we will continue to support and help where possible in the future.
This intent from Elite Timber Supplies will also apply to help other local causes and charities wherever possible!
Why is your business different?
Elite Timber Supplies Ltd are a timber merchant and specialist supplier of constructional timber, landscaping and building products. We sell those products directly to construction and building industries, as well as local trade businesses.
We supply more than 30 individual products from our ranges, of which most can be tailored to precise measurements and requests, comprised of varieties of timber, sheet materials, composite alternatives and building materials. With that in mind, we can provide the customer with bespoke services so that, no matter the requirements, the materials will serve the customers’ purpose throughout the project.
Next and same-day delivery is available for most products, and by working closely with national third-party operatives, as well as having our own delivery vehicles, allows us to meet any last-minute project needs.
