Timber Merchant Moves to Larger Port

A TIMBER merchant has moved its timber import terminal base from Goole Docks, 50 miles up the Humber estuary to Immingham Docks.

The move and new location provide more space for SR Timber’s increasing sales of timber construction products.

The Port of Immingham, also known as Immingham Dock is a major port on the east coast of England, located on the south bank of the Humber Estuary, just north of Grimsby. It is the UK’s largest port by tonnage, handling a wide range of cargoes.

The port allows SR Timber greater flexibility and quicker shipments from its main sawmill supply partner based in Riga – Latvia. As the merchant regularly holds stocks in excess of 20,000m3, the move also gives the business far more undercover and outside storage space.

The investment in this new facility comes as the business further extends its product portfolio, holding a wider and increased stock range of all constructional timber products. Timber product lines range from specialised roofing timber dimensions, cedar shingles, structurally graded carcassing, and sheet materials. It includes increasing volumes of its flagship product ‘Premium Gold’, a UK brand of fully graded roofing batten.
