Timber merchant expands following record sales

Sales, at over £1.2m, are up significantly on the previous year.

Now production capacity at the plant is set to increase by 50% with the addition of a new truss press. This will allow NYT to offer customers quicker turnaround times and truss styles in sizes up to 4.2m high and 18m long, including raised tie, attic truss, finks and spandrel panels for timber frame construction.

The engineered wood products department has also expanded with the addition of three people: Bill Hornby, design manager, Phillip Charles, senior roof truss designer and Steven Irving, EWP team leader.

NYT managing director, Nick Kershaw says: “The new truss plant has been very popular with customers, and we have seen consistent sales growth throughout 2010.

“By offering an in-house design and fabrication service for trusses, I-Joists and other engineered wood products, we have attracted new business from a wide range of customers, including national house builders, timber frame manufacturers, merchants and self builds.”
