H&B has recruited new merchant partner Fulham Timber who becomes the latest company to join the buying group for independent builders’ merchants.
Fulham Timber is a family-owned builders’ merchant based in South London supplying tradesmen with timber, sheet, joinery, and general building supplies from its five branches to Greater London and beyond.
Established in 1984, Fulham Timber has a branch network spanning Balham, Brixton, Colliers Wood and Croydon, supplying materials to local tradesmen, contractors, and the general public as well as running a saw mill in Colliers Wood.
Fulham Timber Director, Will Dobbs, commented: “We are very excited about the opportunities that H&B membership will bring to Fulham Timber. We are looking to continue the company’s growth trajectory and believe that the competitive buying deals that H&B offers, and its excellent rebate system, will make a real difference to our growth potential as well as our bottom line. Margins are very tight in timber at the moment and being part of H&B’s great deals will offer us the margin protection that will allow us to grow.”
Will continued: “We felt we had outgrown our previous buying group and were looking to take the next step. We did a lot of research and after conducting full due diligence, we chose H&B for more than just its great buying; for its flexible and accommodating style. We also believe joining H&B will streamline and improve our buying, especially since we have recently centralised our whole buying process. And we will have access to a broad portfolio of products which will allow us to expand our product offering and improve profitability across a wide range of goods.”
H&B’s Steve Parkins, added: “We are really pleased that Fulham Timber has taken the decision to join our growing membership. The profile of the typical H&B partner is dynamic, locally strong, and with a real commitment to growth, service, quality, and innovation. As such, Fulham Timber fits H&B’s membership criteria perfectly.
“We work hard to ensure that the on-boarding of new members is painless and seamless, supporting them in taking advantage of our great deals as quickly as possible without disrupting their business.”
