Howarth Timber’s York branch joins in anniversary celebrations

Five employees at Howarth Timber’s York branch are celebrating 175 years’ combined service — in the same year the company celebrates its 175th anniversary!

David Marshall, Steve Winters, Chris Peart, Kevin Robertson and David Fogg have all clocked up more than 30 years’ service each with the company. Chris recently celebrated 30 years with the branch, while David is the longest serving employee with 44 years under his belt.

Since its beginning in 1840, Howarth Timber has risen to become one of the leading resources for all things timber related, as well as providing one of the most comprehensive choices of building materials in the country. It has marked its anniversary year with a host of events, promotions and special offers for its customers.

Kevin Robertson said: “We’ve all enjoyed our time at Howarth Timber and between us there’s nothing we don’t know about the building industry. Customers can rest assured that if they have a question about timber or building, between us we will know the answer!”

Kevin Withers, Regional Manager of Howarth Timber’s York branch, said: “The longevity of our staff here is testament to what kind of company Howarth Timber is to work for. It’s little wonder that the company has been around for this long and we’re confident that the business will be here for at least another 175 years!”
