SR Timber reports batten sales boost

6 September 2018

SR Timber has reported a 12% growth in sales of timber roofing battens for the first half of 2018.

Trading director Shaun Revill said he was delighted with such robust growth, particularly in the current climate, and pointed to the performance of its Premium Gold product, with availability of stock, service and back up of technical expertise helping sales.

“We keep surpassing our own expectations for sales of Premium Gold batten,” he said.

“In 2017, we were up by more than 30% 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 core SR Timber products, including cedar shingles and laminated panel products.
