Jewson customer wins Mitsubishi truck

Published:  26 February, 2013

Jonathan White, a carpenter who runs his own carpentry and refurbishment business, is the proud new owner of a Mitsubishi L200 double cab Trojan pick-up truck thanks to Jewson and BSW Timber. Mr White picked up the keys to his prize at Jewson’s Wimborne branch. The pick-up truck was first prize in an Easi-Timber competition run jointly by Jewson and BSW Timber.

The competition, which ran from 1 September to 30th November 2012, was open to Jewson customers across 300 participating branches. Trade professionals who spent over £50 on Easi Timber products were enteredinto a draw for a chance to win the Mitsubishi pick-up truck worth £21,599.

“I’m a dedicated Jewson customer but I never thought that I would be in with a chance of winning the Easi Timber competition,” explained Mr White. “It was great to be presented with the prize and I plan to use the vehicle mainly for social purposes. Having my own carpentry business means that I regularly stop at Jewson to stock up on timber products, it was just by chance that I saw the competition was running.”

Phil Lovelock, branch manager at Jewson Wimborne, commented: “We were delighted to present Jonathan with his prize, with 300 Jewson branches participating in the competition overall and the high level of entries received, it’s a bonus that the winner was one of our most valued local customers.”

Neil Horton, nationals sales director at BSW Timber explained: “This is the largest and most successful competition we have run with Jewson. Following the successful launch of Easi Timber, we thought it would be great to reward trade professionals with the opportunity to win a fantastic prize. We are looking forward to launching more competitions with Jewson in the future.”
