Lathams broadens it's offer with Irish addition

Lathams broadens it's offer with Irish addition

James Latham Ltd has expanded its Irish service offer following the opening of a bulk timber distribution business just outside of Dublin.

The company has taken on the stocks and sales team of hardwoods supplier Tradewoods, and will now operate under the Lathams Direct Timber brand (LDT), trading as LDT Ireland, based out of the existing Warehouse and premises in Naul.

LDT is one of the UK’s largest hardwood timber importers. And was set up by Lathams to provide customers with easier access to hardwoods, direct from the port.

Andy Duffin, Timber Director at Lathams, said: “When the opportunity arose to purchase the Tradewoods stocks and set up a new outlet in Naul it made sense as it allows us to more easily serve the Irish market. It also expands our supply chain relationships and adds new products to our portfolio.

“Our LDT business makes it much more straightforward for customers to purchase hardwoods and softwoods. Because we offer landed stock, they have faster access to materials and don’t have to worry about managing shipping and customs requirements and costs.”

The stock range includes temperate and tropical species, including African hardwoods, such as Iroko and Sapele, North American varieties including Cherry, Maple and Red Oak and Cedar from Canada. Over time, further products will be added to the LDT Ireland range to bring the offer in line with the existing LDT business.
