Patersons Delighted To Scoop Best Small & Medium Sized Timber Trader Award
At the Timber Trade Journal’s Annual Award Ceremony 2006, Paterson Timber Limited was delighted to receive the Award for the United Kingdom’s Best Small and Medium Sized Timber Trader.
Established in Glasgow in 1905 as a timber importer and merchant, trading in hardwoods and softwoods, this award gives Paterson Timber the perfect start to the company’s second 100 years of business and customer service.
Readers of TTJ were asked to nominate the companies that they perceived as the Best Timber Trader in various categories and Paterson Timber received an amazing number of votes; the fact that the company’s customer base is not as large as competitor companies makes this Award even more special to them, as it shows the huge loyalty factor that Paterson has built with its customers throughout Scotland.
Russell Paterson, Managing Director of the company, received the award with great pride. As a fourth-generation director of the company, Russell congratulated all his staff, saying that so much of the company’s success is due to the quality of service that they provide. He added:
“I would like to thank the customers that nominated Paterson’s for this Award, their loyalty means a great deal to us. This could not have been achieved without outstanding work by our staff and suppliers and we are looking forward to continuing to work with them to provide the best service for our customers.”
Paterson Timber introduced a unique engineered timber product into the UK ten years ago in the form of Laminated Pine, designed to eliminate the problem of warping and twisting in red pine doors. Since then, Paterson Timber Limited has introduced a further range of laminated hardwood products.
The award was presented to Russell Paterson at the 10th annual TTJ awards ceremony at London’s Savoy Hotel by Gordon Ewbank of sponsor Osmose Timber Technology.
