More awards success for Arbor Forest Products

Published:  19 November, 2015

Arbor Forest Products (AFP) has been named Timber Supplier of the Year at the National Buying Group’s 2015 Supplier Awards.

The award adds to the company’s success at the 2015 TTJ Awards, where it was named Softwood Trader of the Year, and AFP fought off some stiff competition to be selected by the NBG’s Timber Committee.

The company has worked closely with NBG over the years and sales have increased year on year.

In naming AFP as this year’s winner, the NBG’s Timber Committee paid tribute to “a great business, which has continued to invest in resources”, and praised the company’s staff members for their passion for customer service.

Jason Ostler, commercial director at AFP, said: “I’m delighted that we have been named Timber Supplier of the Year. It’s a credit to the hard work of everyone at the company.”
