Leading independent timber & builders merchant, Joseph Parr has completed its £1m investment into the north Tyneside area.
Joseph Parr (Middlesbrough) covers the Northeast area with two branches & a newly refurbished 4000ft² showroom in Stockton on Tees.
David Anderson, managing director, said: “Our Benton site had outgrown itself and the opportunity to purchase the adjoining 20,450 sq ft building was an instant decision. We have now moved all timber products including sawn timber into the new shed offering our customers clean and dry wood throughout the year, something very few of our competitors can offer. The new layout enables us to provide lots more customer parking and also enables us to load and unload vehicles more efficiently.
“The addition of our first electric forklift and the delivery of two out of five brand new wagons to the site are steps towards to our ongoing carbon reduction programme.”
The branch is located at Wesley way, Benton Square Ind Est, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE12 9TA.
