DTE acquires Cambridge Roof Truss

2 November 2018

Donaldson Timber Engineering (DTE) has announced the acquisition of Cambridge Roof Truss.
DTE said the strategic acquisition had an excellent geographic fit with DTE’s present business and would further supplement its existing product offering across Southern and Midlands regions of the UK.

The acquisition adds to the company’s eight manufacturing sites across the UK and provides DTE with a national distribution network.

Established in 2014, Cambridge Roof Truss limited (CRTL) designs, manufactures and supplies roof trusses, joists and spandrel panels to leading housebuilders and construction companies in the UK. The board of directors at CRTL felt that strategically, the time was right to secure the future of the company, knowing that DTE had the infrastructure needed to continue to satisfy its growing customer base.

“The acquisition of Cambridge Roof Truss further extends our reach in the UK, meaning wherever our customers are, we are on their doorstep,” said Jonathan Fellingham, MD at DTE.

Sue Mills, sales & marketing director for CRTL, will take on the role of branch manager, leading a team of 29 staff.

With an investment plan already in place, the branch can potentially double its production output in the new year.
