Sales rise from the ashes

Following a fire, which devastated the company premises in 1999, timber merchant Maltings Timber have reported increased sales and profits having finally moved to their new permanent site on Churchill Road, Doncaster.

Sales rise from the ashes

The move was made possible by investment from chairman Digby Butterfield and today the company have established a strong position locally. Investment in the new site included new EPOS software, 200m of cantilever systems to improve stock holding, and 8,500sq ft saw mill and a 9,m000sq ft sales area.

Maltings are now anticipating sales for 2007/08 to exceed £2.5m and has plans for the acquisition of a second site.

Managing director Steve Smith said, “With continued enthusiasm from all our staff and continued growth of our customer base, the sky is the limit for the company.”
