The timber and buildings supplies company, Howarth have released news of their newest plans for investment. As the company continues to expand, Howarth Timber and Building Supplies have carried on with investment into a larger store in Tottenham as well as a complete overhaul of the business’s site in Derby.
In order to celebrate the reopening of their Derby branch after the regeneration works, Howarth is holding a three-day event that will offer visitors access to leading suppliers in the industry as well as a range of offers and competitions.
The Tottenham site was in desperate need of expansion, as Howarth Timber and Building Supplies had managed to outgrow the original site. In order to make the Tottenham location suit their needs better, the company invested more than £150,000 in order to make sure that the location offered a better shopping experience for customers as well as better working conditions for staff at the branch. As part of the investment and expansion, the timber and building supplies provider are now accommodated in a larger unit on the Elmlea Trading Estate which is on Leeside Road. The new location is spread across two floors and has the capacity of 500 more products. The second floor of the new space also offers space for Howarth Timber’s new collections for doors and flooring. There was a two-day launch event to celebrate the opening of the Tottenham site with giveaways on offer and appearances by suppliers.
At the Derby branch, at Pentagon Island Timber Yard, has been modernised in order to allow for a better experience for trade customers as well as the public. The site has had a new layout constructed which allows for customers to move through each part of their construction of a house as they work their way through the store. This layout is helpful to inform the public of the different supplies and processes needed, but is also well thought out and organised, making Howarth’s products easily accessible for their customers.
