Shippard, who will turn 74 years old in September, began his career with DW Burns as a buyer, gradually advancing to the position of assistant manager. Currently serving as the storeman, his wealth of experience and extensive knowledge have been invaluable to the company.

Shippard said: “Everything becoming digitalized has been the biggest transformation during my time here. When I first started, everything was handwritten, from orders to inventory management. Now, it’s all at the click of a button. I’ve stayed with DW Burns for so long because I’ve found not just colleagues, but great friends here, and I take immense pride in being part of a company that puts its staff and customers first.”

Tim Doyle, regional director at DW Burns, added: “We would like to thank Roger for his dedication and unwavering commitment to his work. He has become a beloved figure among our customers and his years of experience and expertise make him an invaluable asset to our team. We are fortunate to have had him as part of the DW Burns family for the past 48 years.”

DW Burns is part of the Independent Builders Merchants Group, which also include Grant & Stone, Chandlers Building Supplies, Fairalls and RGB Building Supplies.
