BSW Timber has seen growing success since launching its premium merchant membership scheme in August.
The BSW Timber Crown Distributor Scheme, which offers stockists across the country a timber support package, has seen 67 branches sign up since it went live. The Crown scheme covers key business areas – sales and marketing, service and innovation, finance, training, and presentation – and a wide range of timber products, including BSW’s IRO and Alchemy brands.
Dave Chapman, Sales and Marketing director at BSW Timber, said: “We are thrilled about the growing success of our Crown Distributor Scheme in such a short time. Our aim is to continue branching out and gain more distributors by maintaining the gold standard for timber and merchanting, and by forging new and exciting relationships within the timber industry.”
Joining members face a strict membership criterion to ensure that the products they deliver are to the highest standard and their service is also second to none.
Haven Timber was one of the first customers to become a Crown Distributor. Martina Dytor Butler, Managing Director at Haven Timber, said: “BSW has always emphasised its quality, security of supply and commitment to future development, which echoes our ethos here at Haven Timber.
“We are excited to build on our existing relationship with BSW by becoming a Crown Distributor, together with the support and tools offered by the scheme. Some of the benefits of the Crown Scheme include guaranteed service levels, security of volume and supply, new product exclusivity and staff training and development.
“This level of support is unheard of for independent businesses such as Haven Timber, and with this we will be able to continue and excel in our mission to provide excellent timber, excellent service and an excellent workplace for our team while continuing to grow.”
