Timber supplies triple in Thanet

Published:  31 January, 2012

THANET: The Thanet branch of independent builders' merchants Chandlers Building Supplies is set to triple its stock of planed timber in order to provide customers with the widest product selection in Thanet.

Recognising that their customers, trade and individuals alike, often purchased heavyside products such as bricks and blocks, but then went elsewhere for timber, Chandlers is expanding its product portfolio to meet a shift in demand.

The expansion in stock means Chandlers’ extensive range will now include skirtings, matchings, planed square edge and mouldings.

The new range means Chandlers is able to cater for a broad spectrum of requirements from developers who require a direct-to-site delivery of roof trusses through to building contractors who have specific planed timber requirements.

Richard Skinner, Chandlers commercial director, said, “The Thanet branch had about twenty lines in stock of planed timber products which was far too few so as of Monday, will have over sixty.

“Timber is being increasingly consumed as people move towards sustainable building so it is important that we recognise the needs of our customers and providing choice is essential in ensuring that all customers get the right product for the job.”
