About Southern Timber
Southern Timber has become one of the South West's largest independent timber merchants. The business has grown quickly from its agricultural origins and now occupies a purpose built 2.5 acre site adjacent to the Ipplepen Business Park, near Newton Abbot. Investment continues in buildings, vehicles, employees and office technology to allow Southern Timber to respond to changes in timber supply and customer demands for timber products.
Starting life as a farm diversification in June 2001 the range of timbers has expanded from timbers and posts for agricultural and fencing applications. The extensive yard allows large quantities of Carcassing timbers to be maintained in stock, square & round posts, deckboards & balustrading, farm and garden gates, featheredge and fencing products are all available from stock. Outdoor projects from civil engineering to gardens are made easier with a range that includes oak & softwood sleepers, stockwalling, Yorkshire boarding and half-round poles. Good stocks are maintained of pressure-treated cladding's a variety of shiplap, loglap, TGV boards - as well as planed posts and Carcassing timbers. As our product pages will show there are good stocks of flooring and sheet material, along with joinery, cladding and untreated planed timbers.
Customers old and new are welcome to visit our premises and recently extended Office. Most of our staff are from constructional or agricultural backgrounds - combined with their commercial experience and continual training, means they can provide advice and expertise in many timber product applications. During Summer 2012 our main storage unit were substantially extended allowing us to extend our timber stock and ancillary ranges even further.
