Howarth Timber has been recognised by the Yorkshire Awards with the Business Enterprise Award.
This year has marked Howarth Timber’s 175th anniversary, which has seen the company run a series of events for their staff, suppliers, and customers.
Nick Howarth, managing director, said: “We feel privileged to collect this prestigious award on behalf of not only our current colleagues within Howarth Timber, but also for all the previous generations within the company’s 175 year history.
“We are proud to have been a constructive part of the Yorkshire business community for so many years, and the recognition from our peers that this award shows.”
This year has witnessed a series of developments within the business, including a new website and an online training academy. The new website allows builders to browse Howarth Timber’s product ranges, and also make purchases for collection in branch, or to be delivered to site.
The Online Training Academy is designed to improve the knowledge and skill base of the UK building industry and offers a huge array of online courses.
