Leading stairparts manufacturer, Richard Burbidge is proud to showcase a prime example of Premier Centre excellence, with Wood Lane Timber in Nottingham.

Wood Lane Timber has been trading since 2003, supplying high quality timber, joinery and sheet materials to a wide number of trades, including, joiners, roofers, landscapers and shop fitters as well as supplying materials for local authorities and public-sector industries.

As one of the fastest growing independent timber merchants in the East Midlands, Wood Lane Timber offers a wide range of timber products and associated services to meet each of its customer’s requirements. Now, it’s also a Richard Burbidge Premier Centre, which means its customers are guaranteed to find an in-depth range of Richard Burbidge stairparts in stock at all times.

Wood LaneTimber has in-store displays holding the most popular Richard Burbidge product ranges, instantly available to its customers to complete any hallway project. Brochures and guides are also available to support customers, as well the knowledgeable branch staff who can help support customers throughout the buying process. The company is also benefitting from Richard Burbidge’s Design Team referral scheme, making ordering products quick and easy.

Since becoming a Premier Centre in May 2017, Woodlane Timber has moved to new premises, boasting a much larger trade counter. Since May, the branch has seen a substantial increase in footfall, as well as a huge spike in stairpart sales, with an uplift of over 160%, demonstrating the positive impact of becoming part of the Premier Centre network.

Zara Prescott, for Richard Burbidge, comments: “The Premier Centres have been designed to simplify the buying process to help trade professionals to make the most of the lucrative home improvement sector and we are pleased to see the positive results Wood Lane Timber has achieved, and we look forward to working more closely with them in the future.”

Pat Kelly, from Wood Lane Timber said: “We’re delighted to be part of Richard Burbidge’s network of Premier Centres. We are committed to providing our customers with excellent service at competitive prices, so becoming a Premier Centre was a no brainer for us and we are very pleased with the results so far.”
