The UK’s largest independently owned timber merchant Howarth Timber and Building Supplies is continuing to invest in its 28 branches, having appointed a new branch manager at its Scunthorpe outlet.

Howarth is delighted to welcome Mark Walters to the branch, where he aims to boost turnover, introduce new stock ranges and further enhance the merchant’s already strong customer base.

Mark, who has seven years’ experience in the timber merchant industry behind him, is looking forward to utilising his skills and expertise to aid the growth of the Warren Road branch.

He said: “I aim to make a real impact at the Scunthorpe branch and hope to make it one of Howarth’s top-performing outlets. Introducing new ranges and products will help us to expand our stock and our customer base, which in turn will see us record robust sales figures.

“I want to ensure that the Howarth brand is well-known in the Scunthorpe area and is the first port of call for tradespeople in our vicinity and beyond.”

The branch can be found on Warren Road, Scunthorpe, DN15 6XH.
