Timber industry celebrates at TTJ Awards 2017

2 October 2017

About 450 people attended the TTJ Awards last Friday at The Brewery in the City of London – a record number for the event.

Host and guest speaker Steph McGovern announced this year’s winners, including James Latham which won the Timber Trader of the Year prize, sponsored by the Timber Trade Federation.

Other voted category winners on the night included Brooks Bros in the hardwood category, Arbor Forest Products for softwood, Panel Supplies for panels, International Plywood in the plywood category, East Bros for small timber business, XL joinery for joinery products, Woodpecker Flooring in the flooring category and MTE (Leicester) in the new structural timber systems category.

“Despite this being the 10th year we have won the top award in the TTJ Awards’ 21-year history, it means just as much to us today as it did the first time we received it and in fact serves as excellent motivation to continue to strive for excellence across all facets of our business,” said James Latham MD Chris Sutton.

Earlier in the day, the timber trade backed a TTJ timber construction roundtable – Timber 2020: Building Britain – attended by London Assembly member Tony Devenish, officials from the department for communities and local government, architects, contractors, timber construction companies, timber traders and the wood protection industry. The event was sponsored by Lonza Wood Protection and James Latham. For a full list of winners see here and photos from the day will appear in TTJ’s Awards Review being published in the next issue of the magazine.
