LMR Building Supplies branches into timber with support from NBG

LMR Building Supplies has launched a new specialist timber division as a result of the wealth of Supplier information and deals it has access to through its membership of National Buying Group (NBG).

Based in Findeon, Northamptonshire at the same location as its existing builders’ merchant operation, LMR Timber Supplies has been launched to offer the business’s well-established customer base a more comprehensive product portfolio. The firm has hitherto specialised in a variety of building materials including civils, roofing, landscaping and joinery products since it opened in 2018.

As a Partner of NBG, LMR has been able to introduce a new range of competitively priced timber products from Suppliers with a proven track record of quality including Setra Wood Products UK and Meyer.

The new products include various second fix timbers such as skirting and architrave, doors, decking and fencing supplies, as well as engineered and solid wood flooring, sleepers and sheet materials. LMR has also introduced an in-house cutting facility to enable it to offer cut sheets, firings and other bespoke timber products. The expansion has been a long-held goal of LMR’s, made possible in part through the support of NBG.

Dan Denton, Director at LMR, said: “Most people in business have expansion in their sights at some point – the question is usually ‘when can we?’ rather than ‘should we?’ LMR Building Supplies joined NBG in November 2022 and, because of that, we found we were in a position to expand that bit sooner than expected.

“The knowledge that our timber Suppliers have already been vetted by NBG and that our deals have been negotiated by the NBG’s own Category Management Teams give us a lot of confidence that we’re getting quality products at the best prices.”

NBG’s Category Management Teams (CMTs) are “dedicated to securing the best deals” for Partners, applying industry expertise along with NBG’s combined buying power.

Mark Hughes, Managing Director of NBG, added: “It’s great to see another one of our Partners growing so quickly. We’re really proud of LMR’s success and are happy that NBG could play a role in making that growth happen. Our CMTs are specialists in securing the very best Supplier deals which benefit all Partners and make expansions like LMR’s a smooth process.”
