Operating from St Peter’s Road Industrial Estate in Huntingdon since 2004, Huntingdon Timber was owned by David Biddle, Patricia Reynolds and Stuart Bradley.

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to acquire this well-established business from its retiring owners,” said Hevey managing director Mark Mulvey.

“Huntingdon Timber has great staff and loyal customers, a reputation for great service and a comprehensive stock holding. We’re really looking forward to developing the Hevey brand in Huntingdon – a thriving area with an excellent transport network.”

“The Lords Group is delivering on its commitment to grow the business to be a leading supplier within the merchant industry,” said Lords’ CEO Shanker Patel.

“Our investments in building our team is enabling the group to achieve its long term goals and I am grateful to all our colleagues for their commitment and hard work.”
