Rachael Williams takes on the role of Business Support.

SR Timber has made a key appointment to bolster its team and provide another layer of knowledgeable support and experience for its merchant and contracting customers.

The Huthwaite-based company, a leading importer of timber products and the UK’s largest importer of roofing batten, has appointed Rachael Williams to the role of Business Support.

Williams brings 25 years’ experience of working for merchants, as well as in the wider construction industry. SR Timber sees her appointment as pivotal both to its own business operations and to the processes that underpin how the company services its customers.

“Having met with Trading Director Shaun Revill, it’s clear that there are some very ambitious plans in place for the continued growth of the business and the desire to continue developing the company’s market dominance, particularly in batten," she said.

“Coming from a merchant plc background, I’m really looking forward to working with the close-knit team and playing a role in driving the business forward.”

Williams' role will involve invoicing and overseeing many of SR Timber’s procedural activities, as well as other elements, such as internal auditing.
