Managing director Tim Waters at Lingfield Park racecourse to celebrate Mid Sussex Timber’s 90th anniversary.

Set up in 1929, MST has been supplying directly imported timber to the building trade & retail markets and is now one of the largest stockists in Sussex. From a first branch in East Grinstead, the business has since expanded to three other Sussex locations: Haywards Heath, Forest Row, and Crowborough, remains family-run and is operated by second and third-generation family members; Tim, Simon, Alex and Cara Waters.

To celebrate the team held an evening of racing at Lingfield Park Racecourse. The company also celebrated by launching a new website in May , which brings the business fully online, featuring real-time inventory and stock, nominated day delivery, as well as a branch-specific click and collect service.

Operations Director  Alex Waters said: “90 years is a landmark anniversary for any Company, but for a small independent business such as ourselves, it is even more ground breaking. A celebration like this gives us a valuable opportunity to reward all our staff who worked so hard to get MidSussex Timber to where it is today.

“Looking ahead, our new website and real-time inventory helps us take that important step into the future as we continually develop and improve our services to our customers.”
