Howarth Timber takes root in Chester

Howarth Timber Building Supplies launches new branch in ChesterLeading builders’ merchant Howarth Timber & Building Supplies has expanded its nationwide network with the recent launch of its new branch in Chester, bringing the total to 32.

The branch, located at Broughton Works on Chester Road, has previously been trading as Springfields Timber, but is now formally trading as Howarth Timber & Building Supplies and opening new customer accounts.

Set to appeal to both the trade and public, the Chester branch offers a substantial range of timber and other building products, as well as a specialist plumbing division and a kitchen showroom planned for development. As part of the Howarth Timber & Building Supplies network, the branch benefits from almost 180 years of experience in trading.

Commenting on the store opening, branch manager Gavin Heath said: “Having previously been the branch manager for Howarth Timber & Building Supplies in Newcastle-under-Lyme for nine years, I’m looking forward to the opportunity to lead the team at Chester.

“It’s a big responsibility to launch a new branch, but I’m excited to develop and expand the site into a major mixed offer merchant. We anticipate growing our customer base through offering fantastic Howarth customer service, creating an environment where people enjoy coming to see us.”

While the branch is currently trading, it will be hosting a big launch event later this year, providing both trade and retail customers with the perfect opportunity to get to know the team at Chester.
