Latest News at Southern Timber

We operate in a fast moving, dynamic and competitive industry. As a large independent Timber Merchant we can offer competitive prices on our extensive stock-holding, plus keen pricing for more specialised timber products. Based near Newton Abbot in Devon we are ideally based to serve Devon & Cornwall, using our own transport fleet. Other areas can often be served by the Palletline distribution network. To keep our customers as up-to-date as possible we produce a Monthly Newsletter which outlines a selection of new products, price movements and an overview of what is happening around us. We would encourage all our Trade customers - landscapers, builders, roofers, joiners, gardeners, developers & architects to sign up for their monthly email copy.
