Saint-Gobain Building Distribution (SGBD) have acquired specialist timber supplier Pasquill Roof Trusses Ltd in the latest expansion of their Timber Group.
Pasquill are a specialist supplier of certified timber products used in the construction of timber frame housing, and as such will complement SGBD’s existing portfolio of timber companies in the UK. These include Jewson, RK Timber and International Timber.
The acquisition reflects the continuous growth of timber frame housing and highlights the growing significance of the timber trade, which, say the company, is worth an estimated £7.6bn and is ranked as one of the UK’s largest industries.
Managing director of the Timber Group Dave Gledhill said of the purchase: “This strategic acquisition represents our commitment to expanding the timber element of SGBD, by developing our offer for our customers in terms of product offering and national coverage.
“Pasquill Roof Trusses is renowned for its exceptional service through its ability to develop bespoke solutions for its customers, and its responsible procurement policies, highlighted by its use of certified timber. Similarly, these key areas have played a fundamental part in the development of our Timber Group, which makes the acquisition a natural step forward and we look forward to welcoming the new team.”
