New branch for Donaldson Timber Engineering

24 January 2023

Donaldson Timber Engineering Ltd (DTE) has opened its 10th branch in the UK with a new location in Exeter.

The new branch in the south-west of England will service Devon and the surrounding area, including Cornwall.

DTE has recruited a team of 12 for the branch, including Karol Radziejowski who takes up the role of general manager following three years as general manager of the Cambridge site. Mr Radziejowski has worked at DTE for 13 years, starting as a production operative in Ilkeston in September 2009.

The new site will manufacture and supply roof trusses for the UK housebuilding industry.

“As our business continues to grow, it’s important that we expand our service area to deliver our products across the length and breadth of the UK,” said Luke Roberts, managing director at DTE. “With our Exeter branch, we will now service the south-west of England, the one key part of the country we were missing.

“We have a great team in place, headed by Karol who has years of experience leading a branch. This is an exciting step for the business and we’re looking forward to seeing what the year ahead brings.”

“This new branch marks a really exciting time for DTE as it not only expands our service and capacity to cover the whole of the UK, but also supports an area of England which has one of the highest volumes of new build homes,” said Andrew Donaldson, CEO of Donaldson Group. “I wish Karol, and all the team, great success as we look forward to further supporting our customers with this new manufacturing facility.”
