SR Timber moves to larger port

SR Timber has moved its timber import terminal base from Goole Docks, fifty miles up the Humber estuary to Immingham Docks. The move and new location will provide more space for SR Timber’s increasing sales of timber construction products, the company says.

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, and is the UK’s largest port by tonnage, handling a wide range of cargoes.

The port is the perfect location allowing SR Timber greater flexibility and quicker shipments from their main sawmill supply partner based in Riga, Latvia. As they regularly hold 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 to increasing volumes of Premium Gold, its fully graded roofing batten.

Shaun Revill, Trading Director and original co-founder of SR Timber, said: “We now have a new home for our timber products and sheet materials, and we’re excited and looking forward to many years of trading from our new base at Immingham.”
