Jewson, in collaboration with Wood Campus, is launching a new training pack for staff working with timber called The Extra Yard.

The Extra Yard standards pack will be used as a training aid in every Jewson branches to support the company's timber excellence initiative.

The pack, produced with support from BSW Timber, James Jones & Sons Limited and Norbord, includes three sets of staff cards covering topics such as Storage and Display, Career Development, as well as cards on Sawn Carcassing Timber, Machined Timber, Panel Products and Timber Fencing and Landscaping. Each card features its own tips on what can be achieved by a regular ’10 Minute Turn Round’.

Paul Robertson, Jewson Category Development Manager for Timber and Panel Products, said “We are delighted to have worked closely with Wood Campus again on this ground breaking project, following our previous collaboration on the Jewson Timber Pocket Guide.”
